Kaupapa Māori and the PATH research tool in a post- colonial indigenous context

Planning Alternative Tomorrows with Hope (PATH) is a visual facilitation tool that is used to make strategic plans with whānau and service providers throughout Aotearoa. In this project supported with funding by Nga Pae o Te Maramatanga we use a case study methodology to examine how effective the PATH process is in a Māori context, and if so what aspects

Whānau Ora action research: Evidence of transformation following whānau planning and engagement.

Action research – as part of the wider measurement activity for the Whānau Ora approach – is focused on providing evidence of provider practice, developing improved whānau-centred service delivery and the impact on whānau.

E Rua Ngā Tūru – Attributing causation in Whānau Ora

This presentation explores how causal inferences can be drawn from a ‘natural experiment’, like Whānau Ora. I talk generally about health interventions and a little about the Whānau Ora initiative, and how we might evaluate the effectiveness of these interventions for Māori. I also talk about two chairs, to illustrate what a controlled experiment and what a natural experiment look

Hauora Kotahitanga – Māori health experiences as models for co-operative co-existence between indigenous and non-indigenous people

This thesis examines the relationships forming between the worlds of Māori and non-Māori peoples through hauora Māori. The purpose of this study is to examine Māori experiences of the development and delivery of indigenous knowledge based hauora Maori models, and to consider these experiences conceptually as models for kotahitanga (co-operative co-existence) between indigenous and non-indigenous peoples.

Kei te pēwhea tō whānau? Exploring Whānau Well-being through the Māori Social Survey

Kei te pēwhea tō whānau? Exploring whānau using the Māori Social Survey describes how the Māori Social Survey 2013 (Te Kupenga) will study whānau and whānau well-being. This report explains the Māori-centred approach that Te Kupenga takes to understanding whānau and whānau well-being. We also provide a preview of this relatively new approach by presenting data on whānau and whānau

Tipping the balance: An analysis of the impact of the Working for Families Policy on Māori Whānau.

NZ’s Working for Families (WFF) policy introduced in 2004 aimed to address, amongst other things, the poverty faced by low-income working families. While WFF has been evaluated, little evidence exists on its impact on Māori. Using data from the Best Outcomes for Māori: Te Hoe Nuku Roa Longitudinal Survey (THNR), we found that WFF has positively impacted income adequacy for
