Abstract – Tuhinga Whakarāpopoto
Houses (and people) were never built to stand in isolation. Rather, whare were to be located in relation to the pā for communal living. Marae are integral to Māori whānau and communities and, throughout the ages, marae have continued to adapt to new contexts. Many marae are actively seeking marae-based kāinga solutions for whānau, hapū, iwi, and communities, and many marae have shown an interest in providing both transitional and long-term marae-based housing. This book aims to support marae in developing their own unique housing solutions. It introduces six innovative types of marae-based kāinga based on contemporary cultural and social needs of whānau, and potential opportunities in Tāmaki. It also sets out practical steps for those who want to pursue marae-based kāinga solutions. It includes discussion of governance matters, leadership issues, Auckland Unitary Plan, and Auckland Council regulations, as well as financing opportunities.
