"New Zealand is a Pacific Island country with two main cultural groups: New Zealanders of European descent and the Maori, who are descendants of Polynesian settlers1. It has a rich and diverse history, dating back to the 14th century when it was discovered and settled by Polynesians, who developed a distinct Maori culture. It also has stunning natural landscapes, from snow-capped mountains to glistening beaches."-Wiki Videos: A Maori Cultural Experience New Zealand
