About Us

We are the most unlikely people in the world to belong to the"nerdy" genre.  Some people call us the 'Marae Geeks'.  Put the word 'passionate' in there and we think that probably aptly describes us ...'Passionate Marae Geeks'. 

And we are not alone!  We've managed to attract over 200 others to join us on over 100 Marae websites.  We are learning from each other and progressing all the time.  It is an amazing journey!   

We operate in a virtual world.  It reduces our carbon footprint. Our office is in cyberspace as we live in Auckland, Ohaupo, Rotorua and Wellington with a network of Content Managers who live in Te Awamutu, Wairoa, Ruakaturi, Puketapu, Tolaga Bay, Rotorua, Hastings, Hamilton, Mt Maunganui, Huntly, Ruatahuna, Waiomio, Horohoro, Ngongotaha, Kaikohe, Opononi, Whatatutu, Marokopa, Utakura Valley, Matawaia, Waipawa, Tauranga, Kawakawa, Wainui, Te Teko, Raupunga, Taupo, Pio Pio, Kawhia, Motatau, Horeke, Gisborne, Rotoiti, Moerewa, Putaruru, Warkworth, Pukehina, Matata, Frasertown, Huntly, Te Ahuahu, Kihikihi, Kutarere, Rotokawa, Pipiwai, Whakatane, Waimate North, Heretaunga, Nuhaka, Matamata, Otiria, Waimamaku, Te Poi, Mohaka, Whakapara and Maketu.  

The Naumaiplace experience is our koha to you—a feather for your korowai.
