South of Ruatoria

As the door lintel to this marae suggests, this is one of the Ngati Porou marae. Located just south of Ruatoria, perhaps it is THE Ngati Porou Marae - as in the main marae of the iwi. I haven't been able to find out and at the time, I couldn't find a sign on the property. I'm not going to guess beyond that. The Ngati Porou iwi has 53 hapu groups scattered across East Cape and Eastland and if I put the wrong name to this particular marae, I'm sure to offend someone.
