Friends of the Maori

For some time past the friends of the Maori have been feeling that it is a pity that the Maori architecture cannot be adapted to the modern buildings which the better class among the aborigines are from time to time putting up. The peculiarity of some designs when adjacent to the picturesque style of the Maori is most marked. In consequence of this, at a meeting of the Te Auti Association, held lately in Gisborne, a committee consisting of Dr Maui Pomare, and Messrs A. T. Ngata, A. Hamilton, and F. de J. Clere, was set up to draw plans of model Maori houses.
