MaraeMelbourne was founded on strong cultural values and a desire to bring our people together. The organisation is dedicated to connecting communities to our unique cultural identity. We are committed to providing excellent opportunities to showcase Mana Maori (Maori Essence) and Aroha (Love) through an ethos of humanitarian respect.
As Maori we all sit on a mountain of value, experience and knowledge. It is through this view that MaraeMelbourne created a vision that will highlight these talents as an indigenous community. The deep-rooted values behind the kaupapa of having a Marae here in Melbourne are for the purposes of “Re-connecting Culture & Identity” for our people.
MaraeMelbourne is committed to Marae development based on the principles of Mana Maori | Aroha | Respect | Accountability | Excellence.
