TALES OF TIME Islanders in Ponsonby
Islanders in Ponsonby & Grey Lynn
Ponsonby and Grey Lynn were significant areas where Polynesians from the islands would settle from the 1940's onwards.
For 13 years the Pua brothers, Reverend Mua Strickson-Pua and Sofi Ulugia-Pua have told their story in historic walks through Ponsonby and Grey Lynn.
We joined them as they take Sofi's son Iosefa Ulugia-Pua on one of those walks particularly talking about growing up in 'the hood' during the 70's and 80's.
