Tactile and Down Under
Hi there,Im from Aotearoa, or what the English-speaking world calls New Zealand. We're an independent small country to the East of Australia. We're western and first world. Were 85% British Isles origin down here, who mainly arrived here in the 1800s. But I myself belong to the other 15% who's ancestors arrived here from the Cook Islands in the 1200s. We call ourselves Maori. We speak both English, as well as our own form of Pacific Island language. My culture now lives in western houses, wears western clothes, listens to westerrn music and achieve in western education.However, we still prefer to keep to our own Hawaiian-type, Native American-type values rather than British Isle values.
