Marae DIY - Rongomaraeroa-o-nga-hau e wha Marae (Series 11, Episode Three)

Television (Full Length Episode) – 2015

This episode from the 11th season of the award-winning show sees presenters Te Ori Paki and Ria Hall and company makeover a unique marae: Rongomaraeroa-o-nga-hau e wha. The marae in Waiouru serves members of the NZ Army — aka Ngāti Tūmatauenga — and the local community. Capturing the role of taha Māori in the Defence Force, the makeover enlists 140 new Army recruits, locals, whānau, hapu, ex-military personnel from all over New Zealand, and Victoria Cross recipient Willie Apiata. This season saw Marae DIY shift from Māori Television to TV3.

This is our home and it is represented by our marae. This area: our mountain, our stream, and our training area. And the tying together of that Māori warrior culture and the British traditions of the regiments and discipline is really important … That’s critical to us being world class. This here is a part of our mana.
– New Zealand Army chief, Major General Dave Gawn
