Te Kupenga results showed 371,000 or 71 percent of Māori adults knew their ancestral marae, and of those, 89 percent had been there at some point in their life. This includes 48 percent who said they had done so in the previous 12 months.

Of all Māori adults (both those who knew their ancestral marae and those who did not), 62 percent had been to their ancestral marae, including 34 percent who had done so in the last 12 months.

Most Māori who had been to their ancestral marae in the last 12 months went 3–5 times

Of Māori who had been to their ancestral marae in the last 12 months, the largest proportion (28 percent) did so between 3 and 5 times. One-fifth (21 percent) had been there only once, and 10 percent had been 21 or more times.

Over half of Māori who know their ancestral marae want to go more often
