Faces of the World: New Zealand

Our New Zealander faces are a young Maori man and woman. Before British colonization of the Island, this lush fertile wonderland was inhabited by the Indigenous Polynesian Maori since around the 13th Century ACE. The Island was isolated until about the mid 1600s, when Dutch explorers happened upon the Island. There was a fight and no one visited again until the British about 100 years later. The Maori developed a distinct and unique culture with their own language, a rich mythology, distinctive crafts and performing arts.

New Zealand is an “Independent Dominion” of the so called British Empire and the main religion is Christianity.
