We are asking everyone who is comming to Wellington for the Hikoi to be as self-sufficient as possible. Most ( if not all ) marae have been booked out. The organising roopu for Wellington have agreed to errect an accomodation tent at Chaffers Park on May 5th for whanau to come to for accomodation needs. What we hope to offer whanau is a box of kai for them to take and contact details for homestay.Names and addresses of those who would be able to host people for 1-2 nights Numbers that people could host. contact us on hikoi_accomadation@bigfoot.com We have 2 drop off points Chaffers Park Accomodation Tent May 5th or The Girlies Project 158 Cuba Street. If people are unable to host, another way to assist is to find out where your iwi is staying by getting in contact with the regional organisers.
