The Rebuilding of Te Te Whetū o Te Rangi by its Community: A Work of Determination and Aroha.

Dr Des Kahotea will present an illustrated talk about the rebuilding of the Ngati Pukenga meeting house, Te Whetū o Te Rangi, near Tauranga after it was severely damaged by fire in 2006.

The people of the marae were determined to replace the wharenui (meeting house) with a new building complete with wharenui art. Under Dr Kahotea’s direction, over 100 locals worked on the project that included the navigation of the Māori customs associated with the rescue and rebuild of the marae and the creation of its extraordinary carvings and other artworks.
