Te Puni Kōkiri hopes its contribution to Treasury’s proposed Living Standards Framework will help other government agencies measure the impact of their policies on Māori.

The framework is an attempt to measure wellbeing by getting beyond standard economic measures like gross domestic product.

TPK’s indigenous Approach paper has been added to the discussion papers on the Treasury website.

Deputy director Di Grennell says it draws on the work of thinkers like Professor Sir Mason Durie and Rose Pere, and was reviewed by the Māori Economic Development Advisory Board members Graham Smith, Manuka Henare, and Ganesh Nana.

She says the Living Standards Framework will become a tool kit to help government set targets and measures.

"We would argue that a Māori world view, Te Tiriti o Waitangi, a whānau centered approach haven't been sufficiently applied to those government processes so we are setting a platform that can enable that thinking to be used and applied in a practical way as departments and agencies and Treasury go about their business," Ms Grenell says.

The fundamental problem with Oranga Tamariki's uplift apology
The fundamental problem with Oranga Tamariki's uplift apology is that it's not really an apology at all because they still believe they had every right to take the infant and are apologising for the lack of communication.
National's new draconian Oranga Tamariki welfare reforms are anti-Māori, anti-women and anti-human

Nothing highlights the denial of colonialism quite like the Parihaka apology
Martyn 'Bomber' Bradbury: We must never allow the perfect to defeat the good, but the fact that it's taken 138 years to formally apologise for the tragedy of Parihaka speaks volumes about the cultural denial of the negative effects of colonialism.
