We are currently in the process of investing in our final SRA Kāinga Tahi, Kāinga Rua. The initial investment is focused on solutions for the greater Auckland area. The Kāinga Tahi, Kāinga Rua Strategic Research Area recognises the dual and complex nature of our Maori identities and the many communities we construct our lives in. Simply all Maori by whakapapa originate from a specific place, rohe, marae, kāinga but are more likely now to live at their Kāinga Rua in a city. Many Maori may consider their Kāinga Tahi being the city now and their Kāinga Rua their marae. Once the investment process is completed the initial research programme for the challenge will be fully implemented. There will be opportunities for further investment in research addressing Maori housing issues in the forthcoming contestable round.
