I had to re-awaken this thread because I feel like the information I have been finding out is worth mentioning.
I can see why the stone settlements have been confused as celtic, but the idea that only a european race is capable of stone building is very
The true indigenous people of New Zealand are descendants of the people now known as the White Berbers, who in early times were known as the Mauri.
They lived in the area now known as libya. This was the home of the great explorer, Maui.
The kumara or sweet potato has its origins in South America, but somehow made its way to the Pacific very early on. This is evidence of some sort of
contact. Many people may not know, the great Maui who appears in almost all pacific islands mythology, was actually a real person. His is existence is
verified by cave drawings which appear in Indonesia, Chile, and at Mt Tarawera. He also left petroglyphs on Pitcairn island.
Maui has what you could say is a signature, a small figure resembling a pine tree which appears in these locations, along with details of eclipses and
how he was using an instrument called a tanawa to measure the longtitude of his travels. This signature also appears on the Rongo Rongo boards of
Here is a chart of his suspected voyage
If you want to find out more about the voyage and why it happened, use google.
In 1722, a Dutch explorer, Jacob Roggeveen, sighted and visited Easter island. This happened to be on a Sunday, Easter Sunday to be precise, and the
name stuck: Easter Island (Isla de Pascua in Spanish). What he discovered on Easter Island were three distinct groups of people, Dark skinned, Red
skinned, and very Pale skinned People with red hair. Search up Waitaha on wikipedia and you will find they claim to be 3 different races, 1 dark and 2
light. These are the same people, all descendants of Maui. If you search up the white berbers, you will find some are born with darker skin and hair,
some fair skin with dark eyes, others are born with blonde hair and blue/green eyes. This causes a lot of contriversy as to where they originate.
If you look at the song of waitaha contents page, it mentions being the kete of Hotu Matua. In Easter island Mythology, Hotu Matu'a is the islands
legendary founder. Stone buildings and dwellings exist on easter island.
the language is very similar to Maori, with many words being spelled the same and meaning the exact same, whereas other polynesian languages tend to
have some variation. One example is Tangata, meaning people.
it would seem, these people originated from the same place, as in they were dropped off by Maui. Why do you think the South Island is known as Mauis
canoe? it was his settling place, and also the location of the waitaha of today.
2000 year old rat bones found in hawkes bay are from a species of rat from indonesia that is larger, and predecesses the kiore. Now how would a rat
from indoniesa get to New Zealand 2000 years ago? Oh thats right, Maui stopped off there, as is proven by cave drawings and the presence of his
signature. The drawings were deciphered by New Zealander Barry Fell.
An interesting read is "A museum Underfoot" by trevor hosking. he investigated many sights around tokaanu and turangi during the power scheme, and
on the very bottom layers in some places he found skulls of a completely different shape to modern polynesians. The oldest burials were aligned to the
west, as the egyptians do. The later burials of the same sites fitted the skull shape of modern polynesian. No longer are we limited to far out
conspiracys, this man has found the evidence that these people existed, and pre dated the Maori. In the taupo area they are known as ngati korako,
which translates to fairy folk. Maori stories of patupaiarehe living in the mountains would have been the last few remaining tribes, who would have
slowly been wiped out. The maori would have thought they were gods, due to their white skin and would have adopted their culture. As with the case of
captian cook, when the polynesians realised this was not the case, they would have killed this race.
I believe this is why people say there is lack of evidence of these people. Any pa site, adze or tool is immediately considered to be Maori, when
actually the culture and way of living was adopted from the previous inhabitants.
i know i have missed some things here, feel free to query any of this as i can back it up
