This course will immerse you in understanding the Maori ways of health, activity, and recreations. We will explore similarities of how indigenous people of New Zealand and Utah have been treated by settlers, discover new ideologies about health, activity, and recreation, and learn how we can view the beauty of Utah and life in new ways.
