ABSTRACT
The article provides an overview of a study which explored the effectiveness of the Theory of Planned Behavior (TPB) in explaining the motivation of First Nation adults to be physically active. Authors of the study also investigated the physical activity and beliefs of the group. The study found that cultural or traditional activities that connect First Nation adults to nature and their history may be effective, and that First Nation physical activity programs must be holistic.
