E Tū Whānau stories

E Tū Whānau is by Māori for Māori – it is designed and owned by the community and grounded in kaupapa Maori principles. It has also been embraced by refugee, migrant and other indigenous communities.

Through these stories of change and growth, we give voice to whānau throughout Aotearoa and show what E Tū Whānau means in action. They offer inspiration and examples of whānau doing it for themselves with the support of the kaupapa.

These E Tū Whānau stories celebrate:

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

Te mana kaha o te whānau!
