Tribal name adopted by white New Zealanders who were born in New Zealand, and/or have been there for so many generations that they rightly define themselves as New Zealand Natives. The name is a play on Maori tribal nomenclature which uses “ngai” (from Maori’s original Chinese/Vietnamese roots) or “ngati” (possibly a transliterated derivation from old Phoenician) as a tribal prefix, as in Ngati Porou, Ngai Tahu, Ngati Fishnchips, etc. The name Ngati Pakeha incorporates the word ‘Pakeha’ which is a Maori name for white people.
Use of the name Ngati Pakeha serves as much as a political statement as it does a form of self-identification. It affirms to brown-skinned New Zealanders who have Maori heritage that white-skinned New Zealanders are native to New Zealand and that they are not going away.
Maori: “You white people don’t have any right to be here bro.”
White man: “I’m Ngati Pakeha, sunshine, and I’m as much a native as you.”
