Marae are unique places where Māori culture is expressed and upheld. They are repositories of genealogy, provide a sense of pride for Māori as symbols of identity and are vibrant places where people experience authentic Māori culture.

This book is a comprehensive, concise guide to the marae, including the space and how it is arranged, the buildings on a marae, the functions of and gatherings held at marae, and the cultural understandings and values underpinning marae custom and protocol. The photographs and text work together to clearly identify the buildings on the marae, the constituent parts of buildings and features, such as woven panels and carvings, and the events held at marae and roles people have.

Part of a series of books produced with Te Puia, also available are the titles Māori Weaving: The Art of Creating Māori Textiles, Geothermal Treasures: Māori Living with Heat and Steam and Māori Carving: The Art of Recording Māori History.
