Stage of Sanctuary

The Stage is likened to a sanctuary (e.g) from the forsaking of tribal and racial conflicts as peace prevailed throughout the land and the ultimate conversion of Māori to Christianity.

The memorial plaques are displayed in the sanctuary area, as previously mentioned that this was only the way to obtain a building permit (post-war), by making Kahungunu a Memorial meeting house.

On the stage are fine examples of Tukutuku panel weaving unique Māori art, depicting some of the area's renowned ancestors.

Rakaipaaka, Tutekanao, Tureia, Kaukohea etc.
