Kawiti Marae was a project started by Te Tawai and Maata Kawiti in the early 1970's. The marae was built on their homestead at Waiomio and was opened in 1978/79, comprising a wharehui, wharekai and wharehoroi/nohinohi. 

The wharehui was named Te Tawai Riri Maihi Kawiti in memorial of our father (and grandfather) Te Tawai, after his passing in 1981. The wharekai was later named Maata Matekino Kawiti in memorial of our mother (and grandmother) Maata Matekino, who passed away in 1999.
