About Te Wharewaka o Pōneke

Commonly referred to now as Te Wharewaka, this building was given the official name of 'Te Raukura' at an opening dawn Ceremony on Waitangi Day, Sunday 6 February 2011.  'Te Raukura' is of special significance to descendants from Taranaki iwi of Te Atiawa, Taranaki, Ngati Ruanui, Ngati Tama and Ngati Mutunga.  Previously the area where the building is located was harbour frontage to Te Aro Pā, one of the largest Māori communities in Wellington up until the 1880s.
