Maori are the native or indigenous Polynesian people of New Zealand, arriving in N.Z. before 1300 CE. In the Māori language the word māori means "normal", "natural" or "ordinary".

For New Zealand Maori women, the moko kauae, or traditional female chin tattoo, is considered a physical manifestation of their true identit.
