Ngārongo Marae Trust identifies a need for a culturally appropriate venue that would allow us to practice our Tikanga and cultural values in an appropriate manner. This emphasises a need for a place to learn Tikanga Māori and Marae Protocol.
Since our early beginnings, our wharenui first opened in the 1800s. Our Pa development continued in the late 1800's when the pa sat along side our early settlers. Ngārongo Marae (Ketermarae) sat at the centre of our village. Ngārongo is proudly supported by Ngārongo Marae Committee
