More than a game

More than a game: A history of Māori Hockey

Dylan Thomas, Waikato-Maniapoto Maori Hockey Tane Captain, spent time over the summer collating information and interviewing various people with the goal of producing an informative report on Māori Hockey.  The report has been published on Maori Home Front and can be viewed below or downloaded as a PDF.

“Easter weekend is normally the time for sports competitions, including hockey, but lockdown means that’s not happening at the moment. However we are really pleased to release research from Dylan Thomas, one of our summer scholarship recipients. Dylan (Raukawa, Hauraki) is a keen hockey player, and has taken his passion to produce a report on the history of Māori hockey.”
