The waharoa (gateway) and wharenui (meeting house) of Te Manukanuka o Hoturoa marae are seen in this photograph. The wharenui is named Kahupaake after a revered female ancestor of Te Wai-o-Hua, the local subtribe. The marae's website says it provides 'a cultural heart for the airport where all people will be welcomed under the tikanga (protocols) of Tainui'. It is managed by a six-member board of trustees – three appointed by the airport and three by Tainui iwi.
