Whanaungatanga, whakapapa and whānau are the solutions that have always been with us, but are largely ignored. Laura O'Connell-Rapira reflects on the historic hui held in Auckland over the weekend to launch the fourth inquiry into Oranga Tamariki uplifting Maori children.

Laura is the director of ActionStation - "passionate about unleashing the power of the crowd through digital and community organising, effection collaboration, values-based storytelling and creative campaigning." She has written a summary of the hui for Spinoff, and joins us to talk about what she saw.
