Tamaki Maukaurau: Te Mahurehure

Te Puni Kōkiri assisted Te Mahurehure Marae Cultural Society to publish a book on the history of the marae and its people. Work began on the book in June 2008 and it has been written and edited by Rereata Makiha and Manu Te Awa. Te Mahurehure originated in the Hokianga and many of its people moved to Auckland during the 1960s and 70s, where they established a marae in Point Chevalier. Recently they have undertaken renovations on their marae and the book will be launched at Te Mahurehure marae to coincide with the re-opening of the wharekai in March 2009.
