"PLACE; final week" (House, Cabin, Apartment, Tent, Workshop, Office,...)"PLACE; final week" (House, Cabin, Apartment, Tent, Workshop, Office,...)
You cannot really see how little this Marae is except you can see my sister Elizabeth's head. In fact it was a play house of some little girl. When the Marae of the Ngati Whatua o Orakei people was burnt down, a rich man gave his daughter's play house to the tribe as their Marae. It is now located next to the Marae.
Ngarimu told me about this replica and I am so privileged when he told me this story. The little girl was very lucky to have such a special play house, and Ka Pai to her for being so generous.
They used the little building as their Marae until they built their present one.
I wrote about the Maoris in my Mail Order bride Book.
