Remove Oranga Tamariki as the name for CYPFs

Remove Oranga Tamariki as the name for CYPFs

Stop using Oranga Tamariki as the name for CYPFs

Why is this important?

Oranga is a kupu which implies wellness - culturally the fact that this Ministry uses kupu Maori is distasteful given the bullying tactics used to remove Maori mokopuna and tamariki from their families without engaging with the whanau.

Reasons for signing

  • because i am maori and i dont believe the meaning behind it matches what they do.its like most prisons are maori names why? because there are more it because oranga deal with more maori.change the name!!!!!
  • Because they never sent my file through with my problem to be sorted. I come to them for help but they ruined my day with the rude attitude and the feel of q non important matter. More times than one would think!!
  • The name should not have been orange tamariki to begin with
