Marae are hubs for the Māori community. They physically and spiritually anchor Māori identity, and function as focal points for Māori social, economic and cultural leadership.
Hapū and iwi marae provide the tūrangawaewae (ancestral standing place) for their people. As Māori moved to Auckland from other parts of New Zealand, urban marae were built to meet the cultural and social needs of their Māori communities.
There are more than 60 marae across Auckland that include tangata whenua, Māori community,
taurahere, church and education-based marae.
