INFO SHEET - Pre-European Māori measurement - Due to the geographical isolation of New Zealand, pre-European Māori had little contact with neighbouring islands. Trade and commerce were internally based so there was no need for a precise measuring system. However, activities such as wharenui construction, waka making, woodcarving and weaving did require a high degree of precision.

Wharenui is the Māori word meaning ‘big house’. This diagram of a wharenui shows the key parts of the whare. Careful measurement of each component was needed in the construction of the whare.
