Te Whare o Tiki – co-existing problems knowledge and skills framework



Te Whare o Tiki (The Healing House of Tiki)
The name Te Whare o Tiki (The Healing House of Tiki) was given by Te Rau Matatini to the Co-existing problems joint workforce team for the Co-existing problems knowledge and skills framework.

The actual concept of the name originated from a line in a karakia often recited by Kaumatua Panataua Rangitaawa (Uncle Ben) a well-known Tainui kaumatua from Maniapoto who passed away in 2009. Uncle Ben would quote the whakapapa to Tiki and then recite the quote “E Tiki, ho-mai te waiora ki a ahau” which Te Rau Matatini has translated this to mean ‘E Tiki grant me access to your house of healing powers’. The whakaaro around Te Whare o Tiki complements the themes of expressing transition, strength and hope portrayed in Te Ariari o te Oranga.

Published in May 2013 by Matua Raki and Te Pou. The Werry Centre and ABACUS have contributed to the development of the framework and Te Rau Matatini supports the release of the framework to the mental health and addiction sector. ISBN: 978-1-877537-92-9
