Te Aro Pā Trust papakāinga housing

Te Aro Pa housing

Te Aro Pā is Wellington’s first city papakāinga. Papakāinga translates as ‘nurturing place to return to’ and reflects a type of housing development that is located on multiply-owned Māori or ancestral land. Te Aro Pā is owned by a private trust which represents the collective owners of the land.

They have developed a contemporary kāinga (village) made up of ten three-bedroom units and four one-bedroom units for young families, kaumātua and professionals who have a connection to the original Ngāti Ruanui and Taranaki Iwi people of Te Aro Pā.
