Mauriora - Connection to Community and Culture

Culture LargeIn the original Te Pae Mahutonga framework, Mauriora refers to access to te ao Māori - Māori language, knowledge, culture, economic and social resources, and to societal domains where being Māori is facilitated rather than hindered.

In the context of this City Health Profile, Mauriora also encompasses other ethnic groups having a secure sense of cultural identity founded in meaningful contact with their language, customs and cultural inheritance.
