Participants in a weekend long hui meeting , having slept overnight in the house, relax in the morning before the proceedings of the day begin. A wharenui literally big house is a communal house of the M ori people of New Zealand , generally situated as the focal point of a marae . Wharenui are usually called meeting houses in New Zealand English . Wharenui Also called a whare r nanga meeting house or whare whakairo literally carved house , the present style of wharenui originated in the early to middle nineteenth century. The houses are often carved inside and out with stylized images of the iwi s or tribe s ancestors, with the style used for the carvings varying from tribe to tribe. Modern meeting houses are built to regular building standards. Photographs of recent ancestors may be used as well as carvings. The houses always have names, sometimes the name of a famous ancestor or sometimes a figure from M ori mythology. Some meeting houses are built where many M ori are present, even though it is not the location of a tribe typically, a college or school with many M ori students. While a meeting house is considered sacred, it is not a church or house of worship, but religious rituals may take place in front of or inside a meeting house. On most marae, no food may be taken into the meeting house. Protocols Meeting houses are the centre of any cultural, business, or any affair which is relevant to the iwi as a whole. Typically, visitors to the village would be allowed to stay in the meeting house at night.
