Rebuilding the Kāinga: Lessons from Te Ao Hurihuri

The Michael King Writers Centre writer in residence, Jade Kake, presents her upcoming book, 'Rebuilding the Kāinga', which looks at the resurgence of papakāinga on whenua Māori over the last three decades. She will describe the current social and political context, reflect on the relevance of indigenous economies in the post-Treaty of Waitangi settlement era, and put forward the idea of rebuilding our kāinga (villages) as the best economic and political activity. Kake will discuss some of our unique challenges, draw on innovative ways to suggest how Māori can build affordable homes and businesses on whānau, hapū or treaty settlement lands, and describe the policy needed to make this all a reality.
