This report was commissioned by Te Puni Kōkiri in an attempt to determine what the health and physical activity levels of Māori from Ngāti Raukawa ki te Tonga, Muaūpoko, and Rangitaane were. Other objectives included determining a) the awareness of physical activity benefits, b) the enablers to physical activity, c) the barriers to physical activity, and d) types of health services being delivered and accessed by Māori from the 3 iwi groups.
