We had a lovely whänau noho marae there a year ago. I suggest you look up the Rotorua phone book or Google white+pages+nz. The contact number is in there. Or go to the marae page here in maori.org. Good luck Horahora marae is absolutely beautiful & is on the Tainui boundary. They have strong links with Ngäti Raukawa ki te Tonga. Ko Ngäti Tuara/Ngäti Kea ngä hapü.

Kia ora alli123

The chairman of Horahora Marae is a man named Pat Kingi. If you ring the numbers that Pono has so graciouly provided, you will probably be put through to him. He will probably ask for your whakapapa just so that he has some background on you and where you come through the lines which is standard procedure for people that wish to reconnect with their marae.

As others have stated it is a beautiful marae situated on the opposite side the river across from the Rangiriri tavern.

Good luck to you and when you see uncle Pat tell him Matahuru says hi!

Kia Ora, I'm looking for my whanaunga, descendants of Te One (John)Edwards. All I know is he hailed from Wairoa, and ended up living around Horahora Marae early 1900's, no idea why, unless his wife was from there, whose name eludes me ... any help appreciated. He was son of Harawira Edwards
