Abstract This study examined student perceptions of teaching that included cultural activities, with an emphasis on Cook Islands traditional cultural values. Education researchers believe that teaching in a culturally responsive manner can improve student learning and achievement (Akuffo & Hodge, 2008; Kirk, 2004). It was anticipated in this study that students’ perceptions of cultural activities may reveal an emphasis on Cook Islands cultural values and how this contributes to their participation in and enjoyment of physical education. This article explores how Cook Islands cultural values and practices could be utilised in teaching physical education, and how can they be embedded in the curriculum of physical education. A qualitative methodology was used to analyse the results, and findings showed the significance of recognising Cook Islands cultural values in the curriculum of physical education.
