  • The maori are an indigenous culture of New zealand 
  • New Zealand is a large island in the south pacific ocean off the south east coast of Australia.
  • Some contemporary maori are traditional, some live non traditional, modern live.
  • One traditional of the maori culture is the haka war dance.The dance however is now performed for ceremonial purposes, not war.
  • Another traditional of the maori is ta moko: tattooing or painting the face and body with dark arching patterns.
  • Traditional maori culture is truly  a celebration of the Maori Culture and all that we are as a country.
  • Sadly, like other conquered indigenous people, many maori struggle with poverty, alcoholism and drug abuse.
