Waikato Tainui – National Maori Housing Conference 2018
The National Maaori Housing Conference 2018 will deliver an exemplar conference that is strategic and adds value to every participant and community housing provider.
The theme of the Conference is;
“Maaku anoo e hanga i tooku nei whare. Ko ngaa pou oo roto he maahoe, he patete. Ko te taahuhu, he hiinau. Me whakatupu ke ti hua o te rengarenga. Me whakapakari ki te hua o te kawariki
I myself shall build my house. The ridge-pole will be of hiinau and the supporting posts of maahoe and patatee. Raise the people with the fruit of the rengarenga, strengthened them with the fruits of the kawariki.”
– Kiingi Taawhiao
