The Marae

The Marae

This term we have been learning all about the Marae. We have learned that…….

  • The Marae is an important focal point for the community.
  • The Marae is a place where tradition and customs can be carried out.
  • The Marae is a place where people can express their values with dignity.
  • There are many kawa ( protocols) that prevail on the marae.
  • Marae kawa (protocols) can differ between marae's and iwi.

We have focussed on some key concepts when doing this learning.
These are listed and explained in the table below.

Definition -
give the meaning of these concepts in your own words.
The correct way of doing things
Everyone welcome
Tangata whenua
The local people 
Visitors to the marae
The home base of a marae 
Family relationship
A persons well being, and respecting our elders 

See this video for an explanation of the roles and responsibilities of people on a marae.

Something I would like to learn more about the marae is how many marae's are in new zealand, and how old are they.
