Our Hapū vision for our Marae is “Kia tū Māori te Marae – Building a proud, vibrant, modern Marae.” An important step towards our vision is reducing the flood risk to our Marae. Our Hapū asked that a Committee be established to investigate options to relocate Tangoio Marae or protect and develop it at the current location.
