An introduction to the social and educational significance of physical activity from a Māori perspective.

Mori are the indigenous peoples of Aotearoa New Zealand and are often represented negatively in the public imagination. Mori physical education (PE) and health issues are discussed and described using deficit modelling. This paper asks students to challenge the common sense notions and understandings of Mori PE and health. In particular, this paper will offer a unique strengths-based lens to view Mori PE and health. The paper is focussed on three key whanga or topics. These are:

  • Te Ao Mori/Mori worldview
  • Tiriti o Waitangi/Treaty of Waitangi
  • kaupapa Mori theory and methodology
The paper asks students to:
  • Examine perspectives of Mori PE and health
  • Consider appropriate applications for Mori PE and health
  • Relate theoretical concepts to current issues
