A KIWI: def:-Native New Zealander.
exp:-5th generation Kiwi; my ancesters came to these shores around the signing of the Treaty of Waitangi (6th Feb 1840); unlike my (ex-) wife, who is an "indigenous" New Zealander(Maori) from the shores of the Hokianga, who can trace her "Whakapapa" back to Kupe's arrival in this country(1,500-2,000 yrs ago). In my view, that makes my children "The True New Zealanders". Not only can they trace their family (father's side) to the birth of our nation (signing of the Treaty), but also trace the family (mother's side) to the arrival of Kupe in the Hokianga.
To summerise: I am a native New Zealander, as my wife & children are but in no way, shape or form am I an
indigenous New Zealander.
