Tāmaki Makaurau: Rugby World Cup Central

Tāmaki Makaurau iwi and Māori are focussed on developing a Māori and Pasifika centre for the Rugby World Cup next year. Inspired by the hugely successful indigenous pavilion at the Winter Olympics in Canada, the space could host art, business, and creative exhibitions throughout the Rugby World Cup season. Te Puni Kōkiri Tāmaki Makaurau, like their colleagues around the motu, have partnered with Rugby World Cup regional organisers to make sure iwi and Māori are fully engaged in all planning activities leading up to 2011.
