A Kaupapa Māori supervision context – cultural and professional
Keywords:supervision, kaupapa m?ori, ethics, m?ori practice,
AbstractThis article affirms an indigenous perspective for Māori practitioners of professional supervision in the social sciences, particularly in the practice of Kaupapa Māori supervision. Definitions of supervision are discussed, Codes of Ethics are analysed and are provided a cultural response. Key problem areas of the current cultural supervision situation are identified and an analysis of those areas is deconstructed by asking questions of existing power relations within the sector. Accountability, representation, initiation, benefits and legitimization (Bishop & Glynn, 1990) are the topics under scrutiny. The article reports on a reconstruction of some key solution areas as researched in a PhD study of Kaupapa Māori supervision, completed in 2013.
