He Oranga Poutama ki Tāmaki Makaurau (HOP), “Stairway to wellbeing”, promotes the development and implementation of physical recreation and sport in a way that is culturally appropriate to Māori – as Māori for Māori.
This video introduces Te Whetu Rēhua framework as a tool to help sport and recreation providers consider how they might design or adapt activities to be culturally responsive to Māori.
The framework is based on five key values important for Māori cultural and social development. The tool has been developed with Māori community sport and recreation providers. It supports Māori being able to participate as Māori, recognising that a strong and secure cultural identity helps facilitate access to wider society, as well as being vital to wellbeing as indigenous New Zealanders.
