Protect Ihumātao - SOUL

The Protect Ihumātao - SOUL campaign are led by mana whenua members whose families have resided in Ihumātao for many generations. 

Their whakapapa links to the whenua include Ngati Mahuta, Te Ahiwaru, Waikato-Tainui, Te Akitai and Te Waiohua. We are inclusive of residents, ratepayers, community members and interested parties. 

As a collective, we believe that having a Special Housing Area (SHA) in Ihumātao will not contribute to making Taamaki a liveable city, but destroy one of the few significant and unique historical, cultural, spiritual, social and environmental spaces we have left in Auckland.
