Racial groups European There may or may not have been people in New Zealand before the Maori. New Zealand was discovered by Europeans in the 17th century. Some time in the 18th century, a trickle of escaped Convicts from Australia made it to New Zealand and built a community based on whaling and sealing.
These escaped Convicts also formed relationships with the Maori. Because the nature of these relationships offended English religious figures, in a religious mission led by Samuel Marsden set out to convert the Maori to Christianity and so protect them from the corruptive influence of whalers and sealers.
As reward for accepting the gospel, the Maori were often given guns. More free migrants followed and it was not long before guns had escalated conflicts between different Maori tribes, and between Maori tribes and colonists.
To calm the war, inBritain formerly took possession of New Zealand and signed the Treaty of Waitangi with local chiefs. The treaty granted England absolute sovereignty, stipulated that Maori would retain possession of their land but could only sell to the crown and the Maori would have equal rights as British subjects.
Nor did New Zealand ever develop a bushranging tradition or mythology. Today, the influence of history is best illustrated in Australians knowing less of their colonial history than New Zealanders know of theirs. A good example of the respective ideologies can be seen in regards to Samuel Marsden.
He was known as a cruel man that took delight in the witness of human misery.
Today, few Australians have heard of his name. In New Zealand; however, Marsden never had to deal with Convicts. Consequently, he devoted his energies towards converting the Maori and became widely respected. Almost all New Zealanders have heard of his name.
The different histories between Australia and New Zealand are also reflected in the identities of the respective indigenous populations.
The Maori have a warrior-style identity but feel that their treaty with the British was never honoured by the other side. On the other hand, the Aborigines have more of a victim identity. They feel that they were wronged by Christian missionaries and that their peaceful life was shattered by English soldiers.
Attitude to England With its Convict foundations, Australia has always had a strain of people defined by their hostility towards England. For example, Henry Lawson, a poet writing at the turn of the 20th century, wrote: We have little in common with English people except our language.
We are fast becoming an entirely different people. We are more liberal, and, considering our age, more progressive than England is. The majority of English people know nothing of Australia, and even the higher classes understand neither us nor our country.
The latter entertain a sort of good-natured contempt for us which is only the outcome of their contact with our own shoddy aristocracy, which is several degrees more contemptible than that of England.
Because it lacks a Convict heritage, New Zealand has been far more united in praise towards England than has Australia. This was especially evident in the Falklands War. New Zealand joined Britain in the war against Argentina and broke off diplomatic relations against its South American enemy.
Then prime minister Robert Muldoon said: In New Zealand, we are still a member of the same family. When New Zealanders joked about Australia, they would have some kind of twist on Australians being stupid.Apr 08, · Professional football fans in North America have the choice between two flavours.

At least Americans have been generous to us. Today I found out the origin of the word “soccer”.
