to be diverted to Māori authority
The National Urban Māori Authority is calling for Oranga Tamariki to make way for a "Mokopuna Authority".
They say the Government needs to relinquish power and allow Māori to do what it knows works for its own.
National Urban Māori Authority chairwoman Lady Tureiti Moxon will be giving evidence today at a Waitangi Tribunal hearing, under way in Auckland, into the practices of Oranga Tamariki and why there is a disproportionate number of Māori children in state care.
