In keeping with Matariki’s celebration of new beginnings the Russell Museum presents an exhibition highlighting the Russell Community’s journey toward realizing a “long-held dream” (de Bres 2006) of having a marae in Russell.

“A Marae for Russell” exhibition focuses on the Kororareka Marae Society’s significant twenty year contribution toward fulfilling this objective. The exhibition is presented in the form of a Whare Rununga and Marae Atea. This allows visitors to engage within a simplified marae setting the Kororareka Marae Society’s end goal of a marae as part of the Russell landscape.

Artefacts featured in the exhibition are from the Russell Museum’s historical collection and include Kororareka Marae Society documentation and art work by Pauline Yearbury.
