In this paper we investigate the Navier Stokes flow equations of micro-polar fluids by peristaltic pumping through the cylindrical tube. Taking into account the slip boundary conditions at the wall and using the suitable change of variables, we transform these equations into the ordinary differential equations for which we apply the Adomian decomposition method. Doing so we obtain the stream function, the axial velocity, the micro-polar vector and the pressure.
