The marae is the centre of Hapū life. Hui (gatherings), celebrations and tangihanga (funerals) are all held at the marae. If you are planning to visit Tangoio Marae, but are not familiar with the tikanga (protocols) of visiting a marae, take a look at our section on pōwhiri (traditional formal welcome).
