Te Kōmihana Karauna mō ngā Tūkino o Mua ki te Hunga i Tiakina e te Kāwanatanga
The Royal Commission of Inquiry into Historical abuse in Care was established by the Government on 1 February 2018, with Sir Anand Satyanand appointed as Chair. The Terms of Reference that defines the scope and purpose of the inquiry were released by the Government on 12 November 2018. Through to 2023, the Commission will listen to accounts about the experiences of people in state and faith-based care to understand the nature and extent of abuse that has occurred; undertake research into key themes; examine evidence through public hearings; and identify ways to stop similar abuse from occurring in the future. Engaging with Māori through all aspects of the inquiry is key to the success of the Royal Commission’s inquiry.
This is a critical leadership role that requires a wealth of experience and deep relationships with Māori in order to be successful. The Director Māori Partnerships will support the Royal Commission to partner with Māori in the way it delivers on expectations in relation to Te Tiriti o Waitangi and its Terms of Reference. They will bring a strong kaupapa Māori and tikanga Māori approach to all aspects of the inquiry. They will help build strong relationships with Māori survivors, hapu, whānau, and iwi and encourage their active participation in the inquiry. They will also be responsible for ensuring that the design and implementation of the inquiry is culturally responsive and provides effective access for Māori survivors in the Royal Commission’s work.
