Kāinga Tahi, Kāinga Rua: Māori housing realities and aspirations – chapter summaries
Fiona Cram; Jessica Hutchings; Jo Smith (Eds)
Abstract – Tuhinga Whakarāpopoto
The Kāinga Tahi, Kāinga Rua Kaupapa Māori Research Project draws on expertise from across the Māori housing sector. The project responds to the right and aspiration of Māori researchers, in collaboration with Māori organisations and communities, to develop Māori housing solutions. The outputs of the Kaupapa Māori Research Project include a collected volume of writing, entitled Kāinga Tahi, Kāinga Rua: Māori Housing Realities and Aspirations, published by Bridget Williams Books. This report is a brief summary of some of the chapters contained in the book. The volume includes the reflections and research of the late Moana Jackson, as well as a foreword by tuakana, Ella Henry, who shares insights she has gained from her housing research, her engagements with communities, and her time and mahi with whānau, hapū, and iwi.
The brief introduces seven chapters from the volume – a teaser for the main event. A full list of the chapters and authors included in the volume is provided at the end of this brief.
The research and writing undertaken by authors was funded by the Building Better Homes, Towns and Cities National Science Challenge. The production of the book has been supported by Ngā Pae o te Māramatanga, Creative New Zealand, and Bridget Williams Books.

Podcast: Papakāinga in the 21st Century: Going up
Building papakāinga in urban settings where land is expensive and in short supply, is the focus of today’s papakāinga. Ngāti Whātua Ōrākei have been grappling with exactly these questions on their Orākei whenua. Dr Rebecca Kiddle explores with Anahera Rawiri from Ngāti Whātua Ōrākei, alongside researchers Rau Hoskins and Irene Kereama-Royal, the notion of a ‘vertical papakāinga’. They have been working to understand whether this apartment housing typology fits well with the ways that Ngāti Whātua Ōrākei have historical lived and how they want to live in the future. This innovative exploration builds on their existing papakāinga development that draws on medium density housing typologies to use land efficiently and house as many of their whanau as possible.
Podcast: Housing Kaumatua
21 June 2019: This podcast sees Desna Whaanga Schollum and Becky Kiddle travel to Rauawaawa Kaumatua Charitable Trust to talk with the CEO, Rangimahora Reddy, and the Project Manager for Housing at Ngā Rau Tātangi Māori Housing Foundation, Yvonne Wilson, about their kaumatua housing developments and the research work they’ve been undertaking evaluating the housing programme. We also got to speak with three kaumatua, Patihana Takuira-Mita, Clark Takiari, and Daisy Haimona Upokomanu – all living in housing as part of these developments – to ask what they thought of their new whare.
