Introduction 

This paper attempts to examine the relationship between Maori health and State health policies in New Zealand.  It takes as its point of departure the basic assumption that the most brutal weapons of oppression against both indigenous and immigrant groups have been wielded by state policy and state agencies (Te Awekotuku, 1984, 245). Sivanandan’s theory of racism is used as a framework and its shortcomings are identified.
