Dancing at the community centre

Nō te tau 1948 ka tūwhera te Whare Hapori Māori o Tāmaki ki Waiatarau hei wāhi mō ngā Māori katoa. He wāhi tēnei hei tūtakitaki, hei urutau hoki ki te noho tāone. He maha ngā rā o tēnei wāhi, pērā i ngā mahi kanikani (e whakatū ana i konei i ngā tau 1960), ngā hui me ngā tangihanga. Nō ngā tau 1970 ka whakatūhia ngā marae tāone mō ngā Māori e noho ana ki Tāmaki.
