Greens Maori spokesperson Marama Davidson says the state has done irreversible damage to many in its care, and a full inquiry and apology is needed.

The Human Rights Commission has called for an inquiry, backed by iwi leader and other prominent New Zealanders.

Ms Davidson says the effects of the abuse showed up in the stories told to the nationwide inquiry into domestic violence and child abuse, on which she served before entering parliament.

"The fact that our prisons are full of people who need support and have been victims of all sorts of abuse is absolutely disgraceful, many of whom are Maori. At the the very very least we need an inquiry. I would want to see a full unconditional apology to those people who were in state care as well," says Marama Davidson.

The Maori Party also supports call for inquiry into the historic abuse of children in State care.
