The tough people of newzealand who smash up pakeha folks. Pakeha are too scared of maori because we love to smash them over all the time. We rob the pakehas stores steal all there cars etc.Maoris are hardcore gangstas and pakeha try to copy maori styles. Some pakeha think theyre maori. Youll see maori youth hanging round the shops in big groups robbing the whites. The maoris worst enemy are pakehas because pakeha are so ugly. Maoris will rule NZ and pakeha cant handle it. Maori are the indigenous people of NZ but pakeha think they are. Pakeha are not indigenous to NZ. Maori and P.I are the majority of NZ and we will be taking over NZ and sending those pakeha back to Europe.Pakeha cant mess with the maori cause Maori are to strong and we will waste them and there scrawny white little asses.
Pakeha Says: Look at those mowris.
Maori: Punches out the pakeha and robs his house

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.

Maori is an adjective habitually misused in New Zealand as a collective noun.

pronounced either maari or moeri if you want a job in TV,
academia, or public service.
Pronounced mow-ri by everyone else.

The literal meaning is "ordinary". That is how
the first group of people who arrived in NZ chose to describe themselves relative to the (slightly) later arrivals who they chose to call pakeha (outsider, alien, foreigner). New Zealand is an homogenised monocultural society (with terrible suppressed racial ethno-political tension). Some New Zealanders have some maori ancestry. None have only maori ancestry. Maori means maori person, a person with some maori ancestry.

In media and political usage "maori" is a collective noun used when attempting to sensationalise a news story or when promoting an outrageous political agenda for one's own personal benefit.
correct usage:
"Rangi is of maori descent"
"Many maori people are fine singers"

incorrect usage:
"maori are outraged"
(maori people do not have a hive mind - like the Borg on
Star Trek)
"maori own the water"
("maori" is not an entity. It is a variable attribute of people,
people who already own or don't own the water in exactly the same way as all the other people who don't have that attribute )

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.

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.
