Ngāti Māhanga, Ngāti Māhuta, Ngāti Hine, Ngāti Kāhu, Te Rarawa

Dr Rawiri Waretini-Karena is a lecturer and Postdoctoral Research Fellow at Te Whare Wānanga o Awanuiarangi.  His life has caused him to reflect on the experiences and impacts of intergenerational trauma stemming from colonisation, and especially arising in early legislation and policy in Aotearoa New Zealand. He reflects on the intergenerational trauma within his own whakapapa, and how colonialism, the State, and State care have contributed to that narrative. His areas of research have focussed on this and the impact on Māori in order to contextualise the deficits that the many Māori who share aspects of this narrative face within Aotearoa New Zealand.
