The purpose of the research was to consider the frameworks, values and actions for whānau transformation that exist within mātauranga Māori. Importantly, the research seeks to demonstrate the ways in which whānau themselves generate, through purposeful action, wellbeing from within mātauranga and tikanga Māori. This report synthesises the research with a specific view to prioritising the voices, experiences, knowledges and practices of the research community that have shared their taonga (treasures) with the research team. Using a Kaupapa Māori methodology the project involved interviewing traditional knowledge holders, Māori mental health providers, and whānau Māori to better understand how whānau define and practice wellbeing, the role of mātauranga and tikanga in creating well and thriving whānau, and the collective responsibility to the wellbeing of tamariki within a whānau context. By effectively using the knowledge held by those at the front line working with tamariki and their whānau, and by whānau themselves, this research seeks to demonstrate the collective community, hapū and iwi involvement in the care and wellbeing of our children.
