Colonisation, Hauora and Whenua in Aotearoa

2019

Moewaka Barnes, H., & McCreanor, T.

Description

This article explores the impacts of colonization in Aotearoa with reference to Maori concepts and practices of relational health and well-being, and connections among whenua (land), health and well-being. The authors discuss the harm that colonization has had for Maori communities, trace some broad indicators of relational health and well-being in Aotearoa, and consider how the relational Maori concept based on whenua as a determinant of health and well-being can contributed to better health outcomes.
