‘Tiakina Te Pā Harakeke’ was developed to support the investigation and identification of Kaupapa Māori approaches to Māori childrearing and parenting. The project investigates how we can draw upon such frameworks to support intervention in the area of child abuse and child neglect within our whānau. ‘Tiakina Te Pā Harakeke’ is a research project that brings to the fore the successful values and practices of childrearing that have been held within whānau, hapū and iwi for many generations. It is an exploration and sharing of knowledge that supported the belief held by our tūpuna that our tamariki and mokopuna are treasured parts of whānau, hapū and iwi, as is expressed in the saying ‘he taonga te mokopuna’.
