The Living Pā - A Dream of Generations

Dec. 9, 2021, 1:27 p.m.

The Te Herenga Waka - Victoria University of Wellington Council confirmed investment of up to $45 million in the Living Pā project on the same day (6 December) on which the University’s wharenui, Te Tumu Herenga Waka, was opened 35 years ago. Deputy Vice-Chancellor (Māori) Professor Rawinia Higgins joins us to talk about the Living Pā project, its origins and what this will mean for Te Herenga Waka. Reminding us that this has been a dream of generations including past staff, students and prestigious Māori leaders Rangiāhuta Ruka Broughton, Wiremu Parker and Tā Hirini Moko Mead - the first Professor of Te Herenga Waka. Professor Higgins says the overarching vision of the Living Pā has always been about building our community as a university, reflecting on our Te Herenga Waka name. An investment in the Living Pā is an investment in our people—Māori and non-Māori, students, staff, and our wider external communities.
