A boost today for people working in programmes aimed at stopping violence by Maori men.

Two indigenous best practice manuals developed by Te Kupenga, the National Network of Stopping Violence, were launched in Wellington today by Maori Development Minister Te Ururoa Flavell.

Kia Rangatira Te Mahi was compiled and written by Darrin Haimona with assistance from Te Kupenga’s expert advisors led by Parekotuku Moore.

He Tapu Te Tinana is based on a curriculum package called Creating a Process of Change for Men Who Batter, developed as part of what is known as the Duluth Model.

The Hamilton Abuse Intervention Project has used and adapted the material developed in the small Minnesota city by the Domestic Abuse Intervention Project, which has been working since the 1980s on ways to address violence.

Te Kupenga Maori caucus leader Takurua Tawera says while the manuals were designed for Maori providers and kaimahi who deliver services to Maori, the same framework and data can be used by agencies that provide programmes to other groups.

He says the aim is to provide standards, rationale, benchmarks and resources from which providers are able to monitor and evaluate their performance and improve outcomes.

The overall vision is to uphold the mana and tapu of Maori women to ensure protection and wellbeing of the entire whanau.

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.
