incognitoThis meeting house was built in 1940 to commemorate the centenary signing of a treaty that is the generally considered the founding document of the country it is in.

Located in the South Pacific, 85% this island nation’s 4 million residents are of European descent, and 15% are descended from the native tribes.

The 1840 treaty marked an end to decades of strife and land disputes between natives and the settlers, who generally have a harmonious relationship today. The house was built as a testament to the native peoples' national self-awareness.

Composed mainly of kauri wood and decorated with symbolic motifs and woven panels, the house was carved by a famous native woodcarver and represents all the different tribes and their regional styles.

The meeting house is located in a small town in the far north of the country which is considered the birthplace of the nation. It sits on a small peninsula overlooking a bay that is warm year-round, and is a summer hub for water sports such as sailing, surfing, and scuba diving.
