Maori Teens and Sexting in NZ

Maori Teens and Sexting in NZ

Digital Māori advocate Karaitiana Taiuru has independently analyzed Net Safe’s “Teens and sexting in New Zealand: Prevalence and attitudes" report to extract data about Māori teenagers to compare to non Māori teenagers data.

The initial findings of the original report highlights two things Karaitiana Taiuru said. Firstly, that Māori teens are more likely to be asked for nude images of themselves than Pākehā, Pasifika, Asian and others who identify as another ethnicity. Secondly, Māori teens are also more likely to be sent unsolicited nude images than any other nationality.

The report also highlights that a kaupapa Māori research methodology needs to be interwoven into a Māori based questionnaire on Māori teens and sexting to ascertain how vulnerable Māori children are to sexting and other online vulnerabilities.

Karaitiana Taiuru is interested to know if there are differences between Māori children who are immersed in to ao Māori compared to other Māori children, as this would allow better targeted resources to be created.

The full report of Māori data and comparisons is available at http://www.taiuru.maori.nz
