Tu Ka Ora is the final report from a research project undertaken by Mahinekura Reinfeld that resulted in the publication titled ‘Matarakau: Nga korero mo nga rongoa o Taranaki’. It was her vision to undertake research with kuia and koroheke from Taranaki about their experiences in the use of rongoa Maori.
This research is being funded by the Health Research Council of New Zealand.
The need for contextualised, culturally safe health/social services is well recognised within Aotearoa, particularly within Mental Health and Addiction Services.
While trauma is an experience that can impact on all people, Māori experience trauma in distinct ways, similarly hapu/iwi have experienced trauma in distinct ways.
These are linked to localised experiences of colonisation, racism, discrimination and subsequent unequal rates of violence, poverty and ill health. Given that hapu and iwi have been impacted by trauma in distinct ways it is important to identify practice principles that can contribute to the development of a framework that supports Māori.
