About Cultural Advice Māori (CAM)

“Kia ora!” “Hi” “Hello” “Bulla Vinaka” “Ni hao” “Konnichi wa” “Chao”

Thank you for visiting our Cultural Advice-Māori (CAM) website.

The purpose and intention of cultural and clinical advice from a Māori and bicultural perspective, brings an awareness of safe cultural and professional practice for practitioners in the community. 

With over 25 years experience in cultural leadership, cultural and clinical supervision in social services, you are assured quality services!

Te Tiriti o Waitangi (Treaty of Waitangi) of 1840, was signed in Aotearoa / New Zealand by the Māori Chiefs and the Crown of England. The articles of Te Tiriti is still alive, current and applicable within the constitutional and operational arrangements of the current Labour Government of New Zealand

The statutory and non-government bodies who employ a range of practitioners from various walks of life, now comply with the legislative acts (SWRB & Vulnerable Children Acts etc) that incorporate the intent of Te Tiriti o Waitangi. Those community bodies, who provide a number of services to the public, are obligated to ensure their practices are culturally safe. CAM, offers practitioners the opportunity to review their practices and services with cultural and clinical training and support, to meet staff appraisals, contracts and to comply with quality assurance requirements.

CAM and their services are managed by Director-Anaru Gray.
