Te Wharepora Hou is a collective of wāhine Māori/indigenous women of Aotearoa (New Zealand). We are based mainly in the Auckland region but also have strong participation from wāhine living elsewhere in Aotearoa and the world.
Our collective strives to be a pro-active wahine voice on relevant issues and through any channels available to us. Our primary concern is the wellbeing of whānau, hapū, iwi and our planet. We reflect on our responsibility to protect Papatūānuku and to sustain our living systems.
We see ourselves as part of a global indigenous network particularly of women who are reasserting the place of women as leaders of change. We speak on a platform of indigenous solidarity worldwide.
