Māori lawyers and researchers are calling on the government to adopt long-standing kaupapa Māori models when they develop new evaluation methods for Māori children and young people who come to the notice of Oranga Tamariki.

The requirement to report each year on how measures taken by the Ministry for Children have improved outcomes for Māori children is part of a new law which comes into force next month.

In a paper released as part of Māori research body Ngā Pae o te Māramatanga’s new Te Arotahi series, the researchers including Jacinta Ruru from the University of Otago and Khylee Quince from AUT University argue a kaupapa Māori approach can positively disrupt the government’s systemic undermining of Māori and their whānau.

They say the default in Aotearoa New Zealand is to use Western and Eurocentric frameworks to measure well-being which do not give a full picture of Māori well-being.

ODT Cartoon outrage misplaced
We should collectively be righteously appalled at the tone deaf ODT cartoon that made light of the terrible measles epidemic that has killed over 50 children in Samoa. It was an ugly 'joke' that shouted white privilege, but calls to boycott the ODT, sack the cartoonist and the enormous social media wave of fury seem to me to be grotesquely misplaced.
