Hemi Rukuwai Jury - Workshop: “Mā Wai Rā E Taurima Te Marae I Waho Nei?” “Who Will Tend The Marae?”

The tūrangawaewae of many whānau, hapū and iwi are based around their marae. With the advancement of time, Māori are now asking "who is there to tend the marae?‟ Much Māori historical information is held within information institutions around the world. Whānau, hapū and iwi are going through processes to maintain, sustain and transform marae into repositories for the future. The transformation of these marae into whare taonga provides institutions with the opportunity to gain new and evolving information.

Repositories Of Röpü Tuku Iho: A Contribution To The Survival Of Māori As A People

In providing a Mäori version for the title of my address, the printed programme uses part of a whakataukï2 (a proverb) the whole of which is often expressed as follows:

Hokia ki ngä maunga, kia purea koe e ngä hau o Täwhirimatea.

An English rendition is
Return to the mountains to be refreshed by the winds of Täwhirimatea
