Tariana Turia and colonialism bashing

By Gary R, in , posted: 30-Apr-2007 12:41

Again, the co-leader of the Maori party deems it necessary to blame the colonialists and Christians. This time they are being blamed for introducing smacking as a form of discipline for children.

Turia forgot to mention that up until colonial times Maori practiced the ritual of Taiki which was done to remove the spiritual nature of a fetus so that infanticide could be performed 'safely' after the child was born.

Nice! I think I would rather be smacked thanks.
