New Zealand Maori - Te Ramaroa Marae Inc. is a non-profit organisation formed January 2010 to establish a Marae here in South East Queensland.
In Maori society, the marae is a place where Culture, Traditions, Beliefs and Customs are celebrated, maintained, explored, debated, and affirmed. It's a place where our Maori language is embraced, spoken, taught, and learnt. A place where intertribal discussions are held, and obligations are met, our Marae is a place to host, and welcome visitors, a place where we learn and teach the etiquettes, values and protocols of our Culture. The marae is a place for farewelling our loved ones through the sacred practise of (tangihanga), and like the institutes of old Polynesia – the marae is a waahi tapu; a “sacred place” that carries the Spirit, and the Mana of our Ancestors, and has great spiritual and Cultural significance.
The objectives of Te Ramaroa Marae Inc. are to bring people together to share, to enjoy, to host, and to learn about Maori through participation, observation, and integration at the Marae. It will be a place where people can give expression to their language, culture, traditions and beliefs. It will become a vibrant hub where all networks can source all basic services and information. The Marae will become a part of the greater QueenslandTourism experience. http://www.teramaroamarae.com/
