The chief science advisor for the Justice sector says the impact of colonialism on Māori can’t be ignored.

Ian Lambie’s new report on family violence, Every Four Minutes, says more than a third of New Zealand women experience physical or sexual violence from their partners or ex-partners.

Dr Lambie says colonisation and the marginalisation and impoverishment of the Māori population affected subsequent generations.

Historical evidence indicates Māori experienced little violence within the family before colonisation, and that needs to be built into current responses.

"Culturally appropriate support tailored to whānau history building safe and supported communities and restoring and reconnecting with cultural identity are absolutely vital I believe in terms of transformng whānau affected by violence, also just whānau generally," Dr Lambie says.

He wants to see government working in equal partnership with iwi and Māori to develop kaupapa Māori health and justice programmes.

Should we strip Oranga Tamariki of its name?
Martyn 'Bomber' Bradbury: You get the feeling that the Ministry of Vulnerable Children's name change to Oranga Tamariki was a brown washing exercise to gloss over the much more violent reality of what this new agency would be doing.
Does size matter? The Cross-Cultural Politics of the Penis.
Dr Rawiri Taonui: Those who apply a cultural double standard to condemn indigenous art as obscene while ignorant of their own tradition are the sorts of people who refer to sexual intercourse as having a naughty.
It's okay to kōrero, it's okay to be Māori
Dr Rawiri Taonui: In Tauranga last week there was a ‘It’s okay to be White’ leaflet drop. Complaints also came to light against netball teams from Māori schools for speaking te reo on court.
