te reo maori - the Maori Language

Maaori is the language of the people who inhabited Aotearoa (New Zealand) before European colonisation.

This page contains information about that language, from a variety of sources, including soc.culture.new-zealand.

This is the beginning of a speech in Maori, by Whetu Scott.
