Orakei marae is centrally located in Auckland on Kitemoana St, Orakei, above Okahu Bay off Tamaki Drive. The three hapū named Nga Oho, Te Taou and Te Uringutu affiliate to the Ngāti Whātua confederation.
In 1991 Orakei marae was returned to Ngāti Whātua after its Okahu Bay predecessor had been confiscated in the 1950s. The wharenui is named Tumutumuwhenua and Mahuhu-ki-te-rangi is the associated waka. Orakei marae is ancestrally linked to the maunga Maungakiekie and Maungawhau, as well as to Tamaki River and Waitemata Harbour.
