A century ago New Zealand Maori were called a dying race, doomed to extinction. However, Maori defied these predictions, reversing this decline through imaginative, wide-ranging action. May the People Live also includes a brief survey of traditional Maori medicine, the Maori holistic view of bodily and spiritual wellbeing, and the course of Maori health after European contact.

Author Biography

Raeburn Lange now teaches part time at the University of Canterbury.
