Latest musings on (original) Maori migration

Just when it seemed safe to go back in the water...

Recent and ongoing research into just exactly when Maori arrived here in Aotearoa/New Zealand provided a little lite relief over the traditional Summer Shutdown here. Only a few of the usual Maori commentariat could be bothered responding, and by responding I mean dissing Paul Moon's rather strange comments that this would reopen a number of Waitangi claims as it threatens recorded versions of whakapapa, history and occupation. Um, well, probably not but hey, its summertime. Personally, I preferred it when we were the 13th (and lost) tribe of Israel.

Anyways, plenty of others have bagged Moon, so check them out. I just marvel at his luck in Hohepa Kereopa talk to him at length...
