Second National Māori Hui Inquiry into Oranga Tamariki Ratifies Scope

August 23, 2019 at 12:53 PM

From Whānau Ora

The second national hui in the Māori-led Inquiry into Oranga Tamariki concluded yesterday ahead of schedule after a capacity audience formally ratified the terms of reference that determines the scope and purpose of the independent investigation into both historical and contemporary child uplifts by the Ministry for Children.

“This will be a groundbreaking and reflective framework, pulled together under guidance of our Patron, Sir Mason Durie. We’re going out into the regions through our partner network in the communities to listen because they live, breathe and know their whānau the best,” said Merepeka Raukawa-Tait, Chair of Whānau Ora Commissioning Agency.

“The time has come for change and a solution that is for Māori, by Māori, with Māori given the escalating disquiet in this country by our people. Oranga Tamariki received another $1.2 billion this year, up $238 million from last year – despite failing 14 reviews. The State is signaling through that choice that it can do better and values its own answers over ours – well that is not the truth. It cannot and should not manage Māori, we manage ourselves and determine our own solutions.”

To appropriately evidence the scale of collective impact, a new nationwide initiative, Ngā Pou Whakaaro or Whānau Ora Listening Posts was announced. Hosted by the Whānau Ora partner network, they’ve been designed to provide a safe and private mechanism for whānau to share their stories related to the Inquiry.

The key questions being asked include: What’s working for our tamariki and whānau? What’s not working for our tamariki and whānau? What can we do differently to support our tamariki and whānau?
