TIKANGA O TE MARAE
A marae is a place for our People.
It is my home where I belong and
so I can do what I want
but you know I‘ve got to follow
We need our marae for a many reasons;
and then know the richness
of life and proud heritage which is truly ours.
that we may remember and weep for
pray to god
have our feasts
house our guests
have our meetings
have our weding
have our reunions
Ko Toku marae toku turangawaewae
Tihei mauri ora.
