Te Ritorito 2017: Towards whānau, hapū and iwi wellbeing

View the presentations from our inaugural Te Ritorito forum. This hui aimed to illustrate what the bigger picture of whānau, hapū and iwi wellbeing looks like and what the future implications are for Māori and Government.

Te Ritorito was jointly hosted by Te Puni Kōkiri and Superu on 3-4 April 2017 at the Pipitea Marae, Wellington, New Zealand.

We had an exciting line-up of speakers, including Emeritus Professor Sir Mason Durie, Justice Joe Williams, Whetu Wereta, Dame Tariana Turia, Dr James Hudson, Dr Tahu Kukutai, Helen Leahy, Awerangi Tamihere, Andrew Sporle, Len Cook, and Dr Kathie Irwin. See the forum programme here (PDF, 260 kB).

Te Ritorito 2017 provided attendees with an opportunity to explore:

  • whānau, hapū and iwi wellbeing research, policy and implementation
  • wellbeing and what works with whānau, hapū and iwi
  • the relevance of this work in light of their own experiences
  • future implications
  • potential gaps in the approach, including engagement with whānau, hapū and iwi on these topics.

The facilitators for the forum were Haami PiripiAwhimai Reynolds and Dr Te Kani Kingi.
