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.
