Maoris de scendants of the ancient Polyne sians who migrated here in out rigger canoes from Tahiti and its neighboring Society Islands to the north constitute less than 10 per cent of the two and a half million people living in New Zealand they bulk large in the total pic ture Street and place names are drawn from the Maori language Special representation is provided for them in the national legisla t u r e Traditions and rituals handed down from father to son have been incorporated into the national life in numerous ways In physical attributes and skin coloring the Maoris closely re eemble native Hawaiians No Welcoming Committee When Abel Tasman the Dutch navigator put in here and gave tjie name New Zealand to the is lands back in 1642 the dark skinned Maoris both major islands in sizable number There was as I gather it no welcoming com mittee out to meet the Hol W EARL HALL contrary there were evidences that outsiders were not needed Perhaps that fact explains why no Europeans bothered to stop by New Zealand until 1769 when the famous Capt James Cook made a call on the same exploration which resulted in discovery of the Sandwich Islands later to be come Hawaii It wasnt until early in the nine teenth century that British seal ers and whalers ventured into the seas around New Zealand Mis sionary work was begun among the Maoris in 1814 For many years there was not only an open season but a bounty on visiting Europeans but in 1840 the Maori chiefs were persuaded to sign a treaty of peace Source of Friction 105fi CHEER FUND GOAI PREVIOUSLY REPORTED Children

source of friction for many years and New Zealand history is filled with accounts of encounters similar to those between Indians and white settlers in our own country But all that is over now The equality of European stock and Maoris has been cited as an out standing example of racial toler ance and cooperation The deep seated haired between Maori and Pakeha Maori name for Euro peans has given way to mutual respect and good will Intermar riage isnt common because the Maoris dont want it that way But in schools churches and so cial intercourse there is no sign of discrimination Universal Language English is universally spoken on the islands although the Ma oris have preserved their lan guage in varying degrees of pur ity When I asked my Wellington driver a smiling lad named Syd ney Kago whether he could speak the tongue of his ancestors he re plied Yes but I wouldnt want them to hear me Its become a pidgin t There is no state church but the Anglican denomination is pre dominant
