- Found In: Ga-Wahi, in Naho Bay
- Used In: None
- Trades with: Gadjati for Huki Statue, Kailani for fish
- Item Needed To Collect: None
A Cowrie shell is needed to complete Maku's quest, as Gadjati will only trade a statue of Huki for one. They are also required to trade with Kailani for fish (a more filling source of food than bula berries). They are found along the coast of Ga-Wahi, but it is a little taxing on a matoran's energy to collect them from the sea: instead you can find one or two in the little pool under the waterfall outside Ga-Koro.
