Te Ahua o te Kāinga – Shaping the House

Emeritus Professor Sir Mason Durie discusses the wider determinants that will enable Māori housing to reach high standards. 

Part 1 discusses the broader significance of Housing For Māori with a particular focus on the dual parameters of whānau and community. It concludes with five challenges for improving housing for Māori.  Part 2 is more closely aligned to the significance of a kainga for Māori and the importance of whānau, whenua and whanaungatanga (connections).  It identifies ten markers that have special relevance for kainga. Essentially, Part 1 is about housing and Part 2 is about the house.  October 2019
