Tapu te Ranga Marae Island Bay, Wellington.

www.taputeranga.maori.nz

The Tapu te Ranga Marae in Island Bay, Wellington is a special place.

It is the home of Bruce Stewart who with friends purchased the land, deposited it into a trust for future generations and now with many helpers is restoring it to a place of beauty and love.

Click here for the story of courage and determination that made this place possible against all the odds

Read a story written for our French Readers.

 

He says "We need all people to have a place to practice their kaitiakitanga within their own community"

People from Wellington and around the world participate on the environmental programmes and other activities offered here.
