@Wiremu you say the moriori are alive and well i dont know about that since they were almost wiped out by the maori in 1835, the maori took possessions in accordance to their customs, took the land, enslaved the moriori killed and cannibalised them. the moriori were forbidden to marry moriori. its not just the european that enslaved people maori also did it but funny how people dont talk about that. at least the europeans didnt eat their slaves.this is what 3 news and cambell live should investigate. For years now ancient skeletal remains and artifacts including stone walls, stone dwellings, stone fireplaces, altars and petroglyhs carved in stone have been discovered all over New Zealand. These remains are anscestors of this country, but instead of studying and/or preserving these priceless discoveries they have been left unprotected and under constant threat from development.In 2005 in the Kaipara District a pig hunter found human bones. A curator of the Dargaville Maritime Museum and a team of researchers investigated the findings. They found 3 types of skeletons, some were 7-8 feet tall, some were of a small pygmy size, the others were normal.A specialist who examined the the remains likened the small ones to a race of people living in Wales 3000 years ago. This discovery was not made public. The size and shape of the skulls found were clearly not polynesian.An archaeologist found carbon datings around one of the one of the stone cairns near the Waipoua forest 2.3 metres down that proved there were people living in New Zealand 5000 years ago. Stone dwellings, walls and other ancient stone artifacts were also found in the Waipoua forest.* The remains of twelve skeletons were unearthed by contractors doing earthwork on a farm in Taranaki. They were in a formal European burial ground which was similar to the bog burials of Britain. The burial ground was not known, even to the local iwi. The skeletons were well preserved in woven material but no photography or forensic testing was permitted. * Just over a deade ago in Waikaretu, skeletons were once again discovered by earthworks contractors. They were found in a cave in stone crypts. Anthropologists were called in but the site was shut down and a 75 year moratorium was placed upon it. Stone housing found near the Waikaretu stream was crushed to use for road metal.These are just few of the hundreds if not thousands of discoveries that have been made over the whole of New Zealand (including remains found on my family farm in Raglan) and not just recently but over many decades. These ancient people need our voice, our strength and our unity to protect and preserve their very existence!!! We, the undersigned call on the New Zealand Government to (Without Political Bias) respectfully adhere to our requests...1. Acknowledge the existence of all Ancient New Zealander's. 2. Let our true history and culture be known, open and honestly. 3. Uplift or squash the 75 year moratorium that was placed upon the discoveries in Waikaretu.4. Recover and Preserve all facts and findings of these New Zealand ancestors in a museum Past, present and future.5. Summond the release and return of "ALL" the skeletal remains that have been handed over to local iwi.6. Respect our rights as citizens and tax payers of New Zealand to know the truth and live as the democratic country we are ???7. Stop the denial and destruction of Ancient Celtic NZ.

What I want to hear from our Maori leaders is a rebuttal of the comments made by Mr Crimp. Let us not shoot the messenger.

We are all entitled to our opinion - it is just the forum where it is expressed that is questionable in this case.
That said - he was clearly intoxicated - this is evident by his complexion, eyes and stumbling movements and the fact that he just pulled random comments from his rear orifice.
He is only one - and there are many more like him in this world but he too will be judged one day in the manner in which he judges others - Karma is a wonderful thing! ACT are proof of that.

@ Half Breed get a life. You like to put everything in a box dont yah. Well just for your information I am Maori, And both my parents are Maori. My Dad is a Ceo, and he has nine brothers and sisters who all have University degrees. I am a proud to say who I am and where Im from and I tell people I am a Maori through the good times and bad. I treat every one with respect and dignity, and I have all sorts of friends, Pakehas, Russians, asians and Islanders who all love me and value me as there friend and love the fact that I am Maori. I want to say one thing to you, without protest how will things ever change. People have been protesting for thousands of years, get over it nothing new. Im happy with me, I love my people, I love my culture, aint nothing like going back to my marae and talking to my nanny and Koro. best feeling in the world. Im sorry that you aint happy with you.

David and others, I did not see Crimp express hatred, just his opinion. Kiwa Goddard, I am part Maori also, and I am sick of all this crap. In the '70s everyone got on, there was none of this business, but some Maori listened to Black Americans as they struggled for equality, and thought it sounded so damn cool they just had to bring it here. Today is the result. Today's Maori have perverted the culture of my Maori ancestors who never forsaw or wanted this and are ashamed of and disgusted by their decendants. These decendants howl about non-adherance to tapu that has no revelence today like table sitting, and ignore vital tapu like spitting. They commit crime and blame it on every thing except where the blame lies, with themselves. The men rape and beat their women, parents beat and murder their children. I am ashamed to be part Maori, all the beauty of the culture has gone, only the bad and the violent remains. None of us are true of blood anymore, so why choose to love part of your blood and hate the other part. Many Maori hate their non Maori ancestors, this is unfathomable! Now hear this truth. Maori dispespect of the land and enviromnment caused extinctions, they consumed natural resources with total disregard for potential outcome, and it has been PROVEN that if NZ had not been found for another 100 years, Maori themselves would have been an extinct race. The new settlers would only have found skeletons of people, but no people. This is true! So you radicals protest the races who saved the Maori race from extinction, and interbred and joined and are our ancestors as much as Maori of pre-european times are our ancestors. I am a half breed cross breed with Maori blood, but if being seen as Maori means being seen as part of the culture of the disgusting violent vocal criminal miniority (the ones Crimp discusses), then I AM NOT MAORI THANKS! I don't actually disagree with Crimp. Time for the politically correct crap to stop and for Maori to take responsibility.
