New Zealand History

Ta Moko
The photo shows male and female faces carved into the trunk of a large tree. Both faces show Maori facial tattoos or Ta Moko.

The history of the Maori people and their stories make for interesting reading.

I remember sitting in class as a young child, listening intently to the Maori myths and legends our teacher read to us.

New Zealand In History is a site I found to have a lot of information.
