The new Pipitea marae, 1980

In 1980 at a traditional dawn ceremony, the new Pipitea marae was opened. Built just below the old Pipitea , it was designed to cater for the growing Māori population in Wellington. Although Te Āti Awa protocol is observed on the marae, it also caters for other tribes living in Wellington.
