Many influential chiefs and elders lent their support. This movement became closely associated with innovative Māori health measures adopted by the government. The new Public Health Department established in 1900 included a Māori section headed by Dr Māui Pōmare,until he resigned in 1911 to enter Parliament, Pōmare travelled around the country, inspecting Māori settlements, and giving advice to local leaders to improve sanitary and public-health conditions. For some years, he had the help of a native health officer, Dr Te Rangi Hīroa (Sir Peter Buck).
