Tiakina Te Pā Harakeke: Ancestral Knowledge and Tamariki Wellbeing discusses the values and successful practices of Māori childrearing that have been maintained and encouraged within many whānau, hapū and iwi for generations.

This book is a collaboration of knowledge and insight from a wide range of Māori researchers from all over Aotearoa and across multiple disciplines.
