The Māori (Māori pronunciation: [ˈmaːɔɾi], /ˈmɑːʊəri/)[6] are the indigenous Polynesian people of New Zealand. The Māori originated with settlers from eastern Polynesia, who arrived in New Zealand in several waves of canoe voyages at some time between 1250 and 1300 CE.

To qualify for the latter, a combination of full lips of bluish hue was the height of feminine beauty. A red lip was looked upon as a reproach or disfigurement. Mrs Takamoana's less-full, upper lip, has been enhanced with tattooed lines, giving it an illusion of fullness. Museum of New Zealand Te…
