He Oranga Hapori: A model for raising Maori ... - Te Puni Kokiri

Measuring displays of tikangaOnce the tikanga had been identified and worked, statements were prepared to describe howa community could potentially monitor whether the tikanga had been implemented, and howeffective that implementation had been. 51The study group endeavoured to ensure that the majority of monitoring statements reflecteda change in size or growth. It is understood that a growth statement is consistently simpler tomeasure than a relationship statement.Just as there is any number of tikanga to give expression to kaupapa, there is more than one wayto monitor or measure any given tikanga. Once the form of monitor and measurement has beendecided upon, a scorecard is possible. A worked example of the He Oranga Hapori scorecard wasprepared for the Te Papaioea study. 52With an opening balance of 69; the total growth quality score calculated over the 40 tikanga,provided a closing balance of 70; out of a possible 108.Table 9 - Te Papaioea scorecard totalsTotal growth score 69Total growth quality score 1Genuine progress indicator growth score 70Potential GPI indicator growth score 108If the scores were actual rather than theoretic, a community could draw from these scores thatthere is work to do in terms of progressing Mäori community wellbeing. The scorecard alsoidentifies the kaupapa given expression to and the manner in which that occurred.From these examples we can see that in theory there is the potential for this community to:a) identify how kaupapa tuku iho can assist to describe what community wellbeing is forTe Papaioea;b) design a range of tikanga to give expression to a range of kaupapa and to progressmovement toward the described wellbeing;c) develop a set of statements to monitor and measure that expression; andd) to tally those expressions from one period to another (i.e. annually), and use thosescorecards to plan ahead.51 Hui Taumata Taskforce, (2006) MäoriEconomic Data and Benchmarking p66.52 Te Puni Kökiri, (2008) Te Pütake Rawa aNgä Mäori – The Mäori Asset Base p5.33
