"A marae is a complex of carved buildings and grounds that belongs to a particular iwi (tribe), hapū (sub tribe) or whānau (family). The Māori people see their marae as tūrangawaewae - their place to stand and belong. Marae's are used for meetings, celebrations, funerals, educational workshops and other important tribal events".
"Pataka were erected near the dwelling houses for the storage of preserved foods and household equipment, such as mats, baskets, clothing, fishing gear, implements, and utensils not in immediate use. They were raised on piles to protect the contents from rats".
We've left our Marae (meeting house) and Pataka (storehouse) plain as each iwi will have their own unique design. We leave you to paint or carve your own culture and heritage onto these pieces or simply leave plain.
