Lay summary

Rationale for undertaking this research:
By answering the research question we believe it will give Kahungunu iwi, hapu, sound evidence with qualitative and quantitative data to better inform them where to invest post treaty settlement. We want to find out what makes this place different for overweight whānau and collecting evidence to prove or disprove its special Ahua (Aura).
The research team would need to build robust questions and design of methods, interviews, data analysis, data collection with clinical partners to determine if Hikoi4life can have a positive impact on type 2 diabetes in Māori men. Outcomes: With qualitative data and results from the participants, it can be used for our Māori health providers and Ngāti Kahungunu post-Treaty settlement.
