This blog provides a visual-verbal snapshot of Maori culture and contemporary Maori lifestyles in modern New Zealand. It presents my own experiences and observations of Maori culture and is not intended in anyway to be the definitive view on all things Maori, but rather an introduction for those who want to know more about Maori culture and its place in everyday bicultural New Zealand.

This photograph is far from good but it hints at the power of Gottfried Lindauer paintings of early New Zealand Maori. I saw these prints, cheaply framed, for sale in a Ponsonby Road secondhand store.
