Looking for anyone who attended Waiariki Polytech, Rotorua, 1987, and initiated the first idea of building the marae here. There is a reunion, and trying to locate the students who first mooted the idea.
Head of Maori Studies, was Tame Reweti.

Look up Hiko Hohepa. The whare is basically his. I know there was disagreement over the naming of the marae as to the ownership of the land

Kia ora mo to korero.
It would be great if Koro Hiko was still alive to ask all these things, but as he has passed away, well we have to find other ways. Thanks again for your korerp
