Nga Pae o Te Maramatanga says normalisation of Maori imprisonment rates is a growing threat to Maori culture, and has devastating consequences not only for Maori whanau, hapu and iwi, but for the nation as whole.

The Maori research centre has welcomed a Waitangi Tribunal report that found the crown’s failure to develop strategies to cut down on Maori imprisonment and reoffending breached its duty to protect Maori interests.

Co-director Tracey McIntosh, who appeared as an expert witness, says the intergenerational reach of repeated incarceration is significant.

She says prison is not a Maori place and it should not be the destiny of our people.

It is time for a fundamental review of the Corrections system and the programmes it offers, drawing on Maori knowledge, experience and expertise to support this kaupapa.

The longer term goal should be to stop locking people away.

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.
