Te Puea Magic
When you can’t be any prouder of being Māori visit Te Puea Memorial Marae.  From the carpark where Māori Wardens check you in and issue visitors passes, to walking past three massive containers, one with bedding and linen, one with food and one more with clothing that gets taken to a Correctional facility for sorting and cleaning. This is an incredible logistical process. By Te Rau Matatini Pou Ahorangi, Marama Parore.
