Maori comprise 60 percent of children in Child Youth and Family care and the findings of last month's review presented by the social justice Minister, Anne Tolley, stressed an increased emphasis on Kaupapa Maori approaches within CYF's redevelopment. Over the past three years University of Waikato's Associate Professor Leonie Pihama, director of Te Kotahi Research Institute, has been doing research to highlight why these kinds of values should be actively supported in social welfare.
