Tikanga Ririki

    A Strength-based Māori Parenting Programme

Purpose

Tikanga Ririki was developed by the Te Kāhui Mana Ririki Charitable Trust (operating as Mana Ririki) after its establishment in 2007. The repeal of Section 59 of the Crimes Act created national debate in NZ about child abuse. The outpour of public grief that followed the death of three-year-old Nia Glassie focused the nation’s attention on Māori child abuse in particular. The waiata “Nia” by Maisie Rika marks this event.
