E whakawhiti atu ai I Te Kōpū Mānia o Kirikiriroa me ōna māra kai,
Te ngāwhā whakatupu ake o te whenua mōmona, hei kawe ki Ngāruawāhia,
Te huinga o te tangata.
Te Kōpū Mānia o Kirikiriroa Marae takes its name from the surrounding area, famous for its rich, fertile lands and gardens that linked the network of Waikato sub-tribes (hapū) who lived along the banks of the Waikato River. The design is a contemporary version of traditional aspects with an emphasis on matauranga Māori (learning) and tikanga (customs and traditions).
Our Marae pays tribute to tangata whenua, particularly the late Te Arikinui Dame Te Atairangikaahu, whose support for Te Kōpū Mānia o Kirikiriroa Marae was instrumental in its’ design and opening in 2012.
