The chair of the new Whenuapai Housing Development Partnership says iwi are set to make a major contribution to tackling Auckland’ housing crisis.

The partnership, which brings together Pare Hauraki iwi and the Maori Trustee Te Tumu Paeroa, last week broke the sod for a 49-unit development on land it bought at Whenuapai.

Paul Majurey says the two organisations had developed a close relationship through their development with other Tamaki Makaurau iwi of Waimahia in south Auckland.

The fact the development could be leased to the Defence Force for accommodation for staff serving at Whenuapai made it a sound investment.

Paul Majurey says post-settlement iwi can’t be limited to their own rohe but most invest in the best interests of beneficiaries.

Pare Hauraki is yet to receive its historic treaty settlement so is investing returns from its fisheries and aquaculture settlements.

Ardern Government rings in new values and cultural change
JOHN TAMIHERE: Around the world new governments’ assert their mana as a new administration in their first 100 days in office. But unlike President Trump’s first 100 days where nothing happened, the Labour-led coalition is changing the culture of government as much as its substance, very quickly and very early.
Based on media reporting of League violence, we don't like Pacific Islanders much do we?
MARTYN 'BOMBER' BRADBURY: Since when did we dislike Pacific Islanders so much? I don't know about you, but this weird myopic media focus on Pacific Island 'violence' after the League games currently playing up and down the country seems bewilderingly racist and vicious doesn't it?
