Te Reo, Term 4 2016.

This term we have been learning all about the Marae. We have learned that…….

  • The Marae is an important focal point for the community.
  • The Marea is a place where tradition and customs can be carried out.
  • The Marae is a place where people can express their values with dignity.
  • There are many kawa ( protocols) that prevail on the marae.
  • Marae kawa (protocols) can differ between marae's and iwi.

We have focussed on some key concepts when doing this learning.
These are listed and explained in the table below.

Definition -
give the meaning of these concepts in your own words.
method, the way we do things
a welcoming ceremony on a marae
Tangata whenua
the local people of the land
people being welcomed onto the land on a marae
home base
a relationship with family
love, "go that extra mile"

See this video for an explanation of the roles and responsibilities of people on a marae.

Something I would like to learn more about the marae is, What happens when the leader dies?
