This think piece is the second in a series of three that aims to add to conversations and advance what is known about culturally secure, responsive, affordable, and healthy housing for kaumātua.

The paper continues the story of the development of Moa Crescent Kaumātua Village, Kirikiriroa Hamilton that began in Think Piece One. The overarching question for the project is: What factors made Moa Crescent Kaumātua Village a success? For this second think piece, we ask: What could we learn from the stories of ngā kaimahi about values, decisions, and processes that enabled the becoming of kaumātua housing? This think piece details the collaborative process, incorporating Māori values and community input, in creating culturally secure, affordable, and healthy housing for kaumātua. This report highlights the significance of land acquisition, financial strategies, resource consent navigation, and overcoming resistance, emphasising the role of Māori principles in achieving a vision for communal living and support for elders.
