The core population of the study was all the members of Grandparents Raising Grandchildren (GRG), a New Zealand charity that was founded in 1999. As well, non-members were invited through websites and notices to engage with the survey, and about 100 did so, but none of them Māori. The reason for producing an article on Māori participants is that, as heavy users of GRG, they have carved out their own approaches to negotiating the role of grandparents bringing up their children’s children, or ‘mokopuna’ (often ‘moko’).
