Native Affairs – Not one more acre

A group of rangatahi are battling a huge 500-house development near Māngere in Auckland. 

More than 30 hectares have been given Special Housing Area status at Ihumātao to help address Auckland's housing crisis.

But the rangatahi say this development, and others, will have a major impact on their people and the last remnants of their traditional lands.

So they're taking on the government, the developers and the Auckland Council.
