Te Aroha o te Waipounamu, the wharenui (meeting house) on Ōmaka marae, was opened in 1985. In this 2009 video clip, Kiley Nepia describes the carvings on the maihi (bargeboards) and amo (uprights) at the front of the wharenui, the stories they tell of the migration of iwi and hapū into Marlborough and the links amongst them.
