In partnership with the Kaiāwhina Workforce Action Group, Careerforce te toi pūkenga with the guidance of Kaumātua Wi Keelan, have developed Te Whakapapa o te Kaiāwhina. This is a taonga that aims to deepen the understanding of the term Kaiāwhina and recognising the mana of this workforce and the important role they play in supporting the Hauora of Aotearoa.
The taonga sits within the Kaiāwhina Workforce Action Plan; a 5-year action plan with a 20-year vision for the New Zealand health and disability Kaiāwhina workforce. The moemoeā - vision and dream of the taonga is to enhance mana and evoke a sense of tino-rangatiratanga for all Kaiāwhina in Aotearoa New Zealand.
Careerforce te toi pūkenga want to pay special mention to Kaumātua Wi Keelan, Valerie Williams (Rongomaiwahine) – Te Rau Ora, Te Huinga o Ngā Pou Hauora - Midland Māori Leadership Network and the Midland Mental Health and Addiction Regional Network for their guidance and on-going support.
He mana tō te kupu – words hold great power and have the ability to either enhance or diminish mana and the wairua of a person.
