New resources for raising Tamariki Māori

December 16, 2022 at 3:20 PM

From the New Zealand Family Violence Clearinghouse -

2 new books have been published sharing tikanga and mātauranga for childrearing to support whānau, and E Tū Whānau has created values booklets.

New resources for raising Tamariki Māori

The recently published books from the Tiakina te Pā Harakeke project share tikanga and mātauranga for childrearing, with the aim of supporting whānau and growing wellbeing.

Since 2012, led by Leonie Pihama, Tiakina te Pā Harakeke – Raising a Treasured Child has investigated traditional knowledge, beliefs and practices of whānau and childrearing. The project looked at how communities can use these frameworks to support working with child abuse and neglect within whānau. The team focused on childrearing practices developed over generations in Māori communities based on understanding that tamariki are treasured.

Drawing on the mahi of the Tiakina te Pā Harakeke project, 2 books have been published to support whānau and grow wellbeing. The books focus on tikanga and mātauranga for childrearing.
