Introduction
New Zealand - a geographically secluded and resourceful nation is located at the
southern hemisphere, off the south coast of Australia. The small country has impressively
booming economy, revered for its admirable government policies and highly advanced
civilization. The nation’s interest can be broadly classified into five categories- physical
features, cultural geography, standard of living, government and nation’s economy. The
culture of New Zealand is essentially influenced by the wave of diversified immigrant that
took shelter in the nation sometime from mid 20th century. The prominent cultures are the
European Culture (western culture) and the indigenous Maori culture. The Maori community
has Polynesian roots and independently established their own community. Over the years
they have developed an unambiguous culture. They often regard themselves as “tangata
whenua”, meaning people of the land. Their lifestyle is connected to the sea and land. Maori
art and traditional skills are famous worldwide; few examples are ta moko, haka and waita.
From the early years of 1820, the Maori community started facing numerical and cultural
decline. Maori Renaissance brought in the increase in Maori population from the 1960s.
Other than prominent Maori culture, other culture also prevails in New Zealand. Pakeha is the
New Zealand European culture (Rice, Vehbi, & Wong, 2018). Maori culture is borrowed by
the Pakeha community and vice versa. An eminent exemplification of multi ethnic borrowing
is the Maori dance- “haka of the All Blacks” performed just before the start of international
rugby games. A prominent number of Maori people are practitioners of the western derived
art practices. New Zealand is home to several other cultures and each culture retained their
own attributes and gradually gained popularity among the general public (Gray, 2017).
Treaty of Waitangi is the founding document of New Zealand, signed by the then British
chief and Maori chief. The treaty holds principles of political compact to build a government
and nation state in New Zealand. English is the official language of the nation and also Maori
