Te Āwhina Marae

Te Āwhina Marae stands under the two mountains; Pukeone and Tu Ao Wharepapa. The Motueka river runs swiftly, bringing life and nourishment to the district. The mana whenua iwi are Te Ātiawa and Ngāti Rārua and our wharenui is named after the ancestor Turangāpeke.

As our name indicates, Te Āwhina Marae was created as a place that openly welcomes all people to come and learn, seek shelter, find hospitality, access Hauora services, Kohanga Reo and much more.

Moemoeā / Vision Statement

Awhi Mai, Awhi Atu
Te Āwhina Marae is a living, thriving and enduring Marae for the whānau, hāpu, and iwi of Motueka.

Kaupapa / Mission Statement

We will achieve this by living and breathing ngā uara (our values) of whānaungatanga, manaakitanga, rangatiratanga, kaitiakitanga, kotahitanga, wairuatanga and mātauranga.
