Find your way to the tribal marae of Aotearoa New Zealand - through maps, information and photographs. Marae are the centres of Maori identity and activity. Maori Maps provides a nationwide map of marae, with photos of each marae, contact and background information, and photographs. There are also restricted access areas that marae themselves can use to store their data and photos. Māori Maps is a portal to the marae of Aotearoa. The site will offer not only map location and directions to the gateway of every tribal marae in Aotearoa, but also a digital gateway by which visitors can access sites or service run by marae. Māori Maps recommends that anyone who wishes to go beyond kūwaha - to walk onto marae, be formally hosted or obtain deeper marae knowledge - should engage directly with the marae community and its elders. To date the site contains information for marae in the Tai Tokerau (Northland) and Tamaki (Auckland) regions. Work is continuing towards adding all of Aotearoa's more than 800 ancestral marae by the year 2013--Web site.
