We are not "Horis" we are the native peoples of New Zealand, treat us with respect, for we were here before you. We let you into our country and were great hosts to you.

Would a "hori" have been so nice? It seem that "Pakeha" are the Horis, for you stole our land, stole our language, and robbed us of our culture.
