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.
Porangi Pakeha: the maarees aren't the native people of new zealand anyway

Porangi Pakeha: there are no white people people in prisons

And for all you 'porangi pakeha' out there- Porangi means stupid in Maori. Pakeha means white people- I know this may be news to you, but Pakeha is not a derogatory word.

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.

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.

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.

A cannibal race who migrated to New Zealand and consumed the indigenous people already settled there. Their tribes are known as iwi and sub-tribes as hapu.
Their tribes were constantly attacking each other and devouring their enemies after boiling them in cooking holes or slow-cooking them in oven pits known as hangi.
It was common for them to shrink the heads of those they captured and in the late 19th century and early 20th century they built up a vigorous trade in selling them off to the highest bidders throughout the trading world of the time. Now they are demanding that they be returned from around the world and a number of museums have obliged. They have suddenly become taonga!
In 1840, tribal chiefs signed a treaty known as The Treaty Of Waitangi which was between the Crown and Maori and to this day it is a bone of contention throughout New Zealand society.
Maori are known to propagate the misbelief that they are the “owners” of New Zealand and despite 52% of the prison population being Maori and their race being only 14% of the country’s population they deny that they have a cultural problem in regard to crime.
Even though many iwi having been given millions of dollars in 'reparation' money, they generally have an agenda of apartheid, and although they take their ‘grievance money’ readily, they are less than willing to integrate into the ‘one people society’ of the New Zealand population, and by their actions, much racial disharmony is fostered. These many millions of reparation dollars have not been effectively administered by the iwi chiefs for the general wellbeing of the Maori people.
Successive governments have been ineffective and largely incompetent in resolving these issues.

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.

A degenerative Race that arrived In New Zealand in the 1800's, established their ways in Grass huts and hunted their prey with the "Taiha," and were content with their under developed ways until the British arrived and formed a Government, transforming the country into a demographic, sophisticated place that once lacked intelligence. The signing of a Treaty instantly foreshadowed the misery of the decades to follow. A mistake that all Europeans have to accept and live with; A very angry race that steals, resorts to violence, lacks courage to an extreme extent (They carry out violence in packs), claims "Aotearoa" belongs to them and have broken down their cultural identity to socio-economic sponges that have become a burden to the advancement of the white race that saved their asses in the first place.
1) "Should we approve his welfare check?"
"Yes, he's a Maori"

2) "Should we accept the Maori into Boy's High?"
"No. He can attend Hato Paora, an all Maori boys school instead"

3) "Who the f**k Stole My Bike?!"
"Te Rangi Tehuataka Hata"
"Oh ofcourse.. No surprises there"
