Well they did, once upon a time, eat one another during the tribal wars where the strongest survived...although that part is not spoken about these days. (even though the strongest survived during the NZ land wars)
More is voiced about the evil crown who came over and swindled their land and won't give it back...but yet little is talked about the amount the 'evil' crown has paid out to the tribes for them to squander or payout for maori business ventures or maori scholarships
Points of interest:
*The money (100s of millions) does not come from the crown, it comes from the NZ taxpayer.
*There are no scholarships or business venture payouts for non-maori citizens. (#powderkeg)
But i'll stop there.
