Hoani Waititi Marae was opened on

April 19 1980, its purpose is to provide a centre for Māori, language, culture and practice.

A place of learning that provides a Māori perspective on the world. Hoani Waititi Marae is named after Hoani Retimana Waititi, a descendant of Te Whānau-a-Apanui, Kauaetangohia. His legacy is honoured through the formation of a Kōhanga reo, Kura Kaupapa Maori and Whare Kura houses, Kapa Haka groups, Te Whare Tū Tauā o Aotearoa houses of Maori lore. The Marae complex itself is the result of goodwill by the community of west Auckland, schools and iwi from around the country and the world.
