They were very advanced for their time and were said to be refugees from Atlantis. Anyone putting a bit of research into this can learn how advanced
they were and how harmonously they live with nature to this day.
I have known Maori people through out my life, they are in fact humans, and are not above human nature. They where fighting each other before the
Europeans collonised, they killed (and ate) the entire race of mori ori before europeans came. When the europeans collonised it was perhaps the best
example of deplomacy and peace making in modern history, but all of the human traits of bloodshed and corruption still applied.
There where pig heads and con artists on the european side, and their where canables and savages on the Maori side. But there was also a tremendous
amount of respect for Certain europeans who championed for the rights of the Maori, and also respect for Maori leaders such as Potatoe Tiwherowhero,
and the Kingitanga movement.
If you do come to New Zealand don't expect every Maori to be some kind of Atlantian spiritual guru of something. But I have been very privalaged to
stay at a Marae (Meeting House), and have had encounters with their spiritual teachings, and spiritual Nature.
If your serious about wanting to understand the Maori culture you will have to find a Kaumatua (elder). You will have to dig deep and look below the
surface, but I assure you there certainly is something very spiritual about the Maori as a people, and it is no doubt worth the effort to find it if
that is what you intend to do.
