Tāmaki Makaurau Māori Homelessness Wananga

Te Puni Kōkiri invites people to come along and support this exciting and vibrant event during the Māori New Year – Matariki. The Tāmaki-makau-rau Homeless wānanga is a first time event to be held in Auckland to address the social and cultural needs but more importantly the day-to-day needs of our homeless Māori whānau in New Zealand’s largest city, Auckland. This will be held between July 2 – 3.
