Maori are the native people of New Zealand. The the people who posted the first few definitions have really shown are un-intelligent and racist they are. For example, the Mori Ori were not here before the Maori. They were a group of mainland Maori who migrated to the chatham islands. The first definition is exceedingly stupid. If someone was 1/800th Maori, that would make them way more Pakeha (Non-Maori) than Maori. So, infact, it would not be a Maori trying to get conpensation from the government, it would be some white trash
Pakeha trying to rip off the system by claiming they were 1/800th Maori. I believed I have summed up the sheer idiocy of the first few definitions. And no, I am not a Maori I am not one bit Maori. I am a Pakeha that actually has a functioning brain.
