About E Tu Whānau

E Tu Whānau nurtures and celebrates:

  • Te Ao Māori taking responsibility and action to create positive change
  • doing things that make whānau strong − te mana kaha o te whānau!
  • tikanga and traditional values - drawing on rich and powerful traditions
  • kahukura − the people that inspire change in whānau and communities.

E Tu Whānau has been developed by the Māori Reference Group for the Taskforce for Action on Violence within Families (MRG) and it belongs to everyone. You can take the messages and the values, and do what you need to, to make it work for you and your whānau.

On this website we celebrate whānau throughout Aotearoa as they build and create healthy, positive lives together. We share stories of success and change. Here you can find out about the inspiring things Māori are doing throughout the motu. Let us know what your whānau, hapū or iwi are up to. Share your stories with the E Tu Whānau community here.
