Greetings and welcome to this web-page.

There are multiple Māori physical activity opportunities within Dunedin. We are a group of community members with the aim of supporting the various health providers and initiatives. The local rūnaka are Ōtakou Rūnaka and Kāti Huirapa Rūnaka ki Puketeraki. There are also Māori health providers that offer physical activity initiatives such as Arai Te Uru Whare Hauora and Te Hou Ora Whānau Services Ōtepoti. Anne-Marie Jackson, a Māori physical education and health lecturer at the University of Otago is an advocate of this group and is contactable via the university
