Paper Description

Edit Paper Description Content

Māori and Indigenous health and wellbeing is a complex area of study that has a focus on: Te Ao Māori/Māori worldview; colonisation, the social determinants of health and; whenua based health practices. This paper teaches core conceptual understandings of Māori and Indigenous Health and Wellbeing. This paper will critically analyse health and wellbeing from a Māori and Indigenous perspective in relation to the impact of colonisation on Māori and Indigenous peoples. There is an added element of exploring the whenua based health practices and their relationship to contemporary society. As a result, this paper will enable students to consider factors within society that influence the health and wellbeing of Māori.
