TheUngeek: I'm a New Zealander
New Zealand culture is not much actually lol.
But it's not maori culture. That is thiers, and while they should be free to preserve it, It is not NZ's culture.
Wow, really? I wonder how old you are? Just because in my experience this is the kind of attitude I more often associate with older NZers (no offence to either yourself, or older NZers in general).
The kind of attitude wondering why we bother having Māori Language Week, why the anthem has a verse in Māori, etc. The post below you sums it up well I reckon. If you don't think Māori culture is part of NZ culture then I don't know what to say to that.
