Before Maori: New Zealand’s First Inhabitants – A Perspective
Paperback | English
Before Māori: New Zealand’s First Inhabitants explores a variety of evidence pointing to a long-term pre-Maori inhabitation of New Zealand. It covers the movement of people from Africa, across Asia and down through the Pacific, tracing their route by demonstrating striking similarities of language and culture. Far from being divisive, the book encourages all native-born New Zealanders to think of themselves as one people.
