How does the service work?
Here at He Iwi Kāinga, we aim to provide advice and advocacy to our Māori landowners.
Our focus is to support the development of healthy, affordable Papakāinga homes and communities on whenua Māori.
We support the development of homes owned and occupied by the owners or the whānau who whakapapa to the whenua.
Papakāinga are not just housing developments, and we encourage communities that maintain their connection to the whenua and wai, their identity, communal spaces and intergenerational living.
Papakāinga developments can be difficult. A lot of people and organisations are involved and it can be hard to get agreement.
We work to guide you following the six-step process recommended by Te Puni Kōkiri to get a papakāinga development approved and ready for construction.
