Guests sit to eat during the hākari (feast) in Tawhiwhirangi wharekai (dining room) at Rāhui marae in Tikitiki, on the East Coast, in 1971. This wharekai is unusual in that it has kōwhaiwhai patterned rafters, tukutuku woven panels and carvings – which are normally found in wharenui (meeting houses) rather than wharekai.
