    The title of this thread has nothing to do with the article it linked to - Maori claims aren't impacted by who got here when. And anyone who thinks Maori don't have valid claim - hasn't bothered to read a history book.

    Well they dont have a valid claim, the Morioris would have a claim if they weren't all eaten.

    I agree, so, lets dig them up and see how to make amends.

    In the meantime lets consider how their desendents squandered the best thing that has ever happened to them, and how we endorse this by putting more and more resources into not letting them suffer their own failures.

    I see in the new last week that some of these claimants are going back for another bite of the settlements gravy train. They must be running out of money. Time all this treaty crap was stopped before we give away all the crown land that is left and before the Gov deficit gets any higher..

    Not all the Maori tribes did either but it doesn't stop them making claims.
