Kainga Tahi, Kainga Rua surveys the many ways Maori experience home and housing across Aotearoa New Zealand. These accounts range from the broader factors shaping Maori housing aspirations through to the experiences of whanau, hapu and iwi that connect to specific sites and locations. From statistically informed analyses to more poetic renderings of the challenges and opportunities of Maori housing, the book encompasses a rich range of voices and perspectives, including many wahine Maori authors. Opening with chapters on the wider contexts - history, land, colonisation - the book moves through to focused, and often intimate, discussions of the relationships between housing, home and identity. An expansive concluding section explores how Maori are developing housing solutions that are being called papakainga. These chapters cover rural, urban and big-city developments and complete a sweeping book that revitalises our understanding of what constitutes a home for Maori in the twenty-first century. Contributors: Moana Jackson, Leonie Pihama, Nathan Williams, Mere Whaanga, Ana Apatu, Jenny Lee Morgan, Rihi Te Nana, Matthew Rout, John Reid, Di Menzies, Angus MacFarlane, Jacqueline Paul, Maia Ratana, James Berghan, Jade Kake, Helen Potter, Tepora Emery, Hinerangi Goodman, Eleanor Black, Sylvia Tapuke, Rangimahora Reddy, Mary Simpson, Yvonne Wilson, Sophie Nock, Kirsten Johnson, David Goodwin, Lyn Carter, Anahera Rawiri, Rau Hoskins and Irene Kereama Royal. Underpinned by Maori forms of knowledge, practices and values, the book is kaupapa Maori in its form and development.
