Family Violence and Historical trauma in Maori families

November 26, 2013 at 11:23 AM

This White Ribbon Day 2013 Leonie Pihama is interviewed on Waatea Radio. She says Maori domestic violence is a legacy of colonialism when institutions like native schools broke down hapu and whanau links.

Associate Professor Pihama is principal investigator in a Health Research Council funded project looking at issues of historical and intergenerational trauma on Maori.

Increase in Whanau violence comes with increase in other contributory social factors like increase poverty, lack of identity and this can only be addressed with wider whanau approaches, tikanga principles and related indigenous cultural wisdom to heal whanau.

Dr Pihama encourages Maori men on this White Ribbon Day to take a stand in the spirit of how White Ribbon Day was started and do more positive things for their whanau.
