Rapuora study team

When the Maori Women’s Welfare League’s planned its Rapuora: health and Maori women research, it kept management of the study in-house and developed the project with close community involvement. Led by research director Elizabeth Murchie (left), Rapuora was produced in 1984 using new methods based on Māori cultural practices. Also shown here are league president Georgina Kirby, and one of the Rapuora writers, Mīria Simpson.
