A Basic Introduction to the Marae

The Introduction to the Marae paper has been designed to support professionals to grow their knowledge and understanding of the pōwhiri process and marae protocol, and to gain confidence in these settings.

Today, the pōwhiri process is common in the work space, and the marae and its related activities are at the heart of Māori culture.  Students will be able to apply their learnings in a safe and welcoming environment and make use of the University’s onsite marae – Te Kohinga Mārama Marae.  Practice with us so you can feel confident in a real world setting.
