Kāinga Tahi, Kāinga Rua: A Kaupapa Māori Response of Te Puea Memorial Marae

Author Published Date Read Publication

While urban marae have always been able to provide manaakitanga in times of crisis they have also progressively expanded their day to day roles from the 1980s to include health centres, kaupapa Māori education and te reo Māori revitalisation initiatives.

However, these marae are now responding to the systemic Māori and wider community homelessness which is the result of the deepening housing crisis. In the winter of 2016, Te Puea Memorial Marae (TPMM) initiated a kaupapa Māori marae-led response, opening their doors to vulnerable whānau seeking emergency housing. TPMM not only made the reality of homelessness visible by caring for 181 people (of all ethnicities and cultural backgrounds), but named the housing situation in Auckland as a ‘crisis’.
