Marae-led community development and well-being (käinga ora) is at the heart of this research project known as Marae Ora, Käinga Ora (MOKO). MOKO is a three-year research project designed to explore a holistic notion of käinga ora and community well-being beyond the existing focus on marae-led housing interventions. In the current housing crisis in Tämaki Makaurau, marae have illustrated a capacity to not only provide the social support infrastructure for whänau in need, but also some leadership towards a formalised response to the housing crisis for the whole community, and not exclusively Mäori. Five marae are engaged in the MOKO project, all these marae are located in South Auckland. The key aims of this project are to examine the potential for marae to engage in future development of sustainable marae-led käinga initiatives in and with their communities; and to provide insights that influence opportunities for others, in particular external agencies and services, to achieve greater outcomes and collaborative advantages for whänau and community wellbeing, alongside marae. It is critical for marae to be supported through this research, to work with their communities and stakeholders to formulate collective solutions and co-produce shared approaches, strategies and activities through the reproduction of new knowledge that emerges from this study. Community participation is a prerequisite to understanding and enhancing community well-being and käinga. The MOKO research project was in the first six months of environmental scanning following the appointment of marae-based researchers for each of the marae, when the first COVID lockdown was experienced in Aotearoa, 2020. It is the presence of these Marae Research Coordinators (MRC) that enabled the MOKO project to capture the first-hand response from the five marae to their whänau and community needs during the lockdowns. This article shares insights into the diversity of manaakitanga for three of the marae in meeting the needs of their distinct communities.
