Maori Maps: portal to the marae of Aotearoa New Zealand

"Māori Maps provides a nationwide map of marae, with photos of each marae, contact and background information, and photographs. There are also restricted access areas that marae themselves can use to store their data and photos.

To date the site contains information for marae in the Tai Tokerau (Northland) and Tamaki (Auckland) regions. Work is continuing towards adding all of Aotearoa's more than 800 ancestral marae by the year 2013.

Māori Maps is a portal to the marae of Aotearoa. The site will offer not only map location and directions to the gateway of every tribal marae in Aotearoa, but also a digital gateway by which visitors can access sites or service run by marae. Māori Maps recommends that anyone who wishes to go beyond kūwaha – to walk onto marae, be formally hosted or obtain deeper marae knowledge – should engage directly with the marae community and its elders."

Rongomaraeroa: contemporary design to tell traditional stories

"Rongomaraeroa, Te Papa's Marae, is the creation of master carver Cliff Whiting and the Māori advisory group to Te Papa, Ngā Kaiwawao, who came up with the concept to develop a fully functional marae, which would embrace the concept of mana taonga and the principles of the Treaty of Waitangi. The official opening was on 30 November 1997. ...

New Zealand's other cultures are represented along the back wall of the meeting house, and the changing relationship between Māori and Pākehā is portrayed inside the cupboards housed in the poutokomanawa (the central heart post of the meeting house)."
