Marae Interior

Waihao marae, Waimate. Nov. 2008. Ajr
The Waihao Marae sits in a field on a quiet gravel road south of Waimate.
It's just two kilometres from a dramatic stony coastline (see whitebaiters below), where locals gather the sea's rich bounty. It doubles as the local community War Memorial Hall - for both Maori and Pakeha. This is the back interior wall, where old photos of war time soldiers are displayed along with two traditional piupiu (skirts)
