Dame Iritana Tawhiwhirangi IV NTOTW 4 10 2021

Maoridom needs to reclaim responsibility for caring for our tamariki and mokopuna and stop relying on the Crown. Dame Iritana Tawhiwhirangi says we’ve left too much power to the state to look after our tamariki, when Ngati Porou know our kids and whanau well enough to wrap support around them. Erana Reedy caught up with Dame Iri about the Report on the review of Oranga Tamariki, she and others lobbied for.
