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

  • it smacks of euro centric ideology of translating Maori kupu to suit the oppressors needs , tokenistic and flawed .
  • Not only do they absolutely need to change the name, change the rotten culture. Shameful!
  • Because what a disgrace. They name it in maori and attack maori tamariki.. Just to make them self look good. whats this world coming too maori that are involved should be cast as pakeha non maori your ancestors will be tossing in the spitits and in there graves
