Kia Ora e te whanau,

Can I please have information pertaining to the matua marae of Ngatiwhatua ki te kaipara? I was advised this was Riripo marae, but the research has led me to find this marae was destroyed and never
re-erected, as a result a new marae was built, this is named Waikaretu. I would like information please pertaining to the matua marae, weather it be Rirpo or Waikaretu. I have visited Waikaretu and it doesn't appear to have any history there apart from photos, no tokutoku or carvings on display.

Kia Ora
