How we maintain te reo me ōna tikanga engagement processes through virtual communications.
Continuing to involve extended whānau networks in assessment, decision-making and interventions.
Working more closely with Iwi/Māori service providers who hold trusting whakapapa and whanaungatanga relationships and have access.
|Alert Level 2: Maintaining mana tamaiti, whakapapa and whanaungatanga during COVID-19 (PDF 135 KB)||
While we can visit tamariki and whānau during Alert Level 2 (following the health and hygiene must-do’s), whānau will be managing their own transition in different ways
Many will be returning easily to increase socialising and contact with others while some may be fearful or have more vulnerable factors causing them to move more slowly or require support to manage this change
Given the history of Māori with pandemics and the increased health and socio-economic disparities it is important to practise in mana-enhancing ways as we all progress towards a new type of normality
Ngā Wai a te Tūī Māori & Indigenous Research is bringing together information and resources for whānau, communities and kaupapa Māori services in Te Whare Māori.
Te Whare Māori has 3 Pou:
- Pou Kōrero — Information
- Pou Āwhina — Support
- Pou Manaaki Caring for one another
