This led to conflict and, in the 1860s, war broke out in the North Island. In fact, New Zealand was the last large and habitable place in the world to be discovered. Māori ancestors were the first settlers in New Zealand. Much Māori land was confiscated or bought during or after 20 years of war. New Zealand wars Te Ara. Economic growth.

New Zealand has a shorter human history than any other country. In fact, the word Maori itself signifies the change the Europeans brought on Maori life. Before, there was no collective word for the various tribes in New Zealand. Maori was decided, meaning ordinary. Short, yes, but the amount of change this country experienced was pretty phenomenal. It all started with the Maori. Using awesome navigational skills to make their way from a Polynesian island they called Hawaiki to Aotearoa (New Zealand), they migrated to New Zealand in the 1300s.
