Brown skinned people who rowed on wakas to new zealand.They encountered the moriori who were the native race to new zealnd at the time. The maori people eradicated the moriori and conquered the lands, nothing dissimilar to what the europeans were doing all over the World. The europeans arrived. War started then the europeans decided to trick the maori into a truce and sign a treaty to stop the war.
the injustices of this treaty at the time have somewhat backfired. All pakeha are paying for their ancestors rule. It is justice for all the early settlers lying, deceit and thievery.
Maori people were sold as slaves, beaten if they spoke maori, segregated from society, forced to follow the white people way and laws. They maori race was oppressed.
Since the opening of waikato university the maori people have become well educated and adapted to society, it seems quite ironic that the pakeha people are now the ones who aren't coping in society. They generalize that all maori are dumb, always pull the 10% of population is maori and 90% of prison inmates are maori when in fact, there are no more full blooded maoris left, they all have european blood, so technically there are over 90% pakeha in jail.
Maori - a race who returned to their roots and embraced their culture to overcome oppression.
Pakeha: yous think you own this land.. There were people here before you... They own it, not you!
Maori: yep bro, but my ancestors ate them, theres no more left, so now this land is OURS!!
Indigneous people of New Zealand, originating in South Pacific. Signatories to the Treaty of Waitangi, 1840. One of the national languages of NZ (The others being English and Sign).
Even the NZ Maori Rugby team can usually beat Wales
Self proclaimed land owners of New Zealand. In 1840 British settlers realised the lack of intelligence of the natives that they had recently encountered and decided to form the treaty of waitangi. In this treaty the maori signed away all their land in exchange for a few guns and bracelets. Sometime around 1900 the maori brain evolved to the point of having 2 brain cells, and they realised what a terrible mistake they had made. Ever since then the maori have been trying to seek revenge on the white man by selling him crappy tinny's, taking his shoes, and generally stealing everything that isn't nailed down. This type of behaviour is hardly suprising coming from a culture that actually beleives New Zealand was caught like a fish and pulled to the surface by one maori in a canoe. To this day, maoris still exist in new zealand inhabiting such areas as otara, mangere, and a million other shitty places you'd never have to go to if marijuana was legal.
"Duh thats rite bro you get 0.3 grams of weed for your $20, now you know how it feels"
"hoo hoo hoo hoo hoo hoo hoo hoo hoo hoo hoo"
"aw bro my cru of maori's is the baddest bro we can't even afford a spray can to tell people who we are"
A race of people whom the New Zealand government seems to favour over the people of European decent in New Zealand. Maori receive such bonuses as:
- cheaper university fees
- extra money on government benefits (as if to encourage them)
- their own political party that only persons with maori decent can be in. (they can also be in the other parties if they wish)
Maori seem to have no morals
whatsoever. Their favourite pastimes include drugs, alcohol and smoking behind the P.E shed. Some maoris prefer to beat up and steal from the elderly. No maori wears his own shoes.
The New Zealand Government seems to think they should encourage the maori race, but these days most criminals in NZ are of maori decent, so really they are encouraging them to be criminals, and therefore insuring the future of New Zealand to become one huge Otara.
"bro, hook a brother up aye? I'll smash ur white ass, you betta watch ur bak aye I'll get my black maori homies onto you"
A New Zealand people, traded everything for nothing, and now have buyers remorse, which will carry on for another hundred years. Supposedly the "natives" -this has been proven false, there were other people here first before them, who the maori ate. They are 10% of the general population, and 90% of the prison population. Go figure.
NZ Person: "Dude, grab us a beer?"
Maori: "Eh? Bears live in asia..."
People that claim to originally come from new zealand who were dumb enough to sign away there land for basically nothing, now they try to claim it back and call anyone that doesnt agree with them 'racist'. They also smell funny. they get a whole bunch of extra benifits from the government but still are the dumbest people in new zealand.
maori1: ow bro g ow, lets go steal some jandles ow
maori2; ow no ow, wats a jandal
A variation of 'Nigga' often found under bushes or sifting through rubbish bins in south-west areas of large New Zealand cities. As a people they make up an 'Iwi' but small groups are often are refered to as 'Whanau' or cuzzies. Traditional maori hobbies are creating 'Hangis' (placing food under the ground then cooking it with fronds of native vegetation and heated rocks), lining up outside KFC in bare feet waiting for their big bucket to arrive, consuming synthetic highs and a lifelong goal of not dying of natural causes. If you sight an iwi member then hand over your shoes before they mug you for them.
"Oh bro come get a budget cola with me!" "na, I'm off to the Warehouse to steal a shirt gee!" "Oh cherrrr I'll come with" "Maori"
Māori translates to natural or normal. When Europeans arrived in New Zealand, the natives had to come up with a way of defining themselves so they became known as Māori. This is because to themselves they were normal, while the Europeans became known as Pākehā, or foreign. Māori is also the name of the native language spoken by Māori people.
Someone who has Māori ancestors is considered to me Māori.
Māori is an official language of New Zealand.
