Firstly, thank you PNV for donating $50 yesterday. Much appreciated. 

OK, now to today’s blog.

Please watch this video.

The video is a TV1 documentary which was aired on the “Sunday” program. 

It’s about the emergency housing situation in Rotorua. 

It’s literally packed with critical information about co-governance because it gives crucial 2022 insights into Maori behaviour and mentality.  

I am going to write several blogs to cover what I want to cover. 

In this first blog, I am going to talk about who Maori are – their psyche, or their DNA. 

When I watched this video, I was initially shocked with how Maori treat Maori. 

But then, as I thought about it, I had read a lot of early NZ history, which includes a lot about Maori and what they did to each other pre-1840.  When I remembered what I had read, my shock diminished.  

That is to say, I said to myself  “OK, the behaviour of Maori in Rotorua to Maori in Rotorua is consistent with pre-1840 behaviour of Maori to Maori back then.” 

Here are some examples. These quotes come from an excellent book written by lawyer and historian Stuart C. Scott.

Pre-1840, Maori possessed in their character “a love of killing, the unspeakable cruelty to fellow humans and the absolute and total disregard for the value of human life. Thousands of examples of the extraordinary callousness are recored by all the observers of Maori life in the early days of European presence in New Zealand. Two will suffice here.  It was standard practice, before a cannibal feast, usually after a battle, to bind the about to be cooked victims by the wrists and ankles to a long pole – a kind of spit in fact. One had always presumed these unfortunates to be dead, but Reeves [meaning William Pember Reeves, 18th century NZ lawyer, MP, and journalist] noted that Te Rauparaha, after a victory, actually engaged one of them in conversation and as a result the man was freed. The idea of human beings being roasted alive was apparently as acceptable to the Maori as it is shocking and revolting to Europeans.  

The second example of the murderous cruelty of Maori towards their fellow human beings was called to mind when, in 1988, the London curio auctioneer Messrs Bonhams offered a Maori smoked human head for sale.  News produced cries of horror from the Maori community in this country which complained bitterly that such a relic should be offered for public sale.  

It was very apparent that the concerns of Maoris in New Zealand at this grisly offering were not sparked by the sale itself but by widespread international publicity which was being accorded to one of the most horrible and widespread practices of their own race.

These heads were in such high demand amongst European sailors visiting New Zealand in the earlier part of the nineteenth century and brought good prices – that the supply soon fell far behind demand and Maoris, ever good businessman, filled the gap by tattooing slaves, killing them, and offering the resultant heads to eager buyers. 

As the demand for smoked heads grew, so the custom of preserving heads was adopted until slaves were being tattooed, then killed, in order to make a sale. 

In some instances live men were paraded to ships’ crews for inspection and selection, in a bizarre extension of the trade. These ‘orders’ were then paid for in advance then duly delivered as agreed.” 

As a result of assembling comments from respected historians, it can be concluded that Maori were a non-literate primitive race of immigrants [not indigenous] who arrived in this country early in the present millennium from an unknown place of origin somewhere in the Pacific.  Eye witnesses have informed us of their barbaric social practices and of their laziness.  We have noted the record of their frightful savagery in their favourite occupation, inter-tribal fighting, of their cannabilism, their treachery and their habitual, dreadful, cruelty to each other.” (1)

How do these accounts of Maori behaviour pre-1840 relate to Maori behaviour reported on the Sunday programme on TV1? 

Maori men in Rotorua, organised by the thuggish Maori ring leader “Tiny”, are treating Maori residents, particularly women, like slaves. 

Slavery was ‘big’  in Maoridom in pre-1840 Maori history.  Maori would take other Maori as slaves, use them, and then often eat them.  Life expectancy for Maori woman was 20-30 years.

Gang members in Rotorua are seen to be intimidating, bullying, beating, and harassing other Maori. 

Really, on the show we saw gross psychological warfare, with strong Maori breaking down weak and vulnerable Maori women, using various means to do so, all to get money, sex, and ‘favours’ from them. 

In the TV1 show, there is a report of Tiny’s men standing over a woman giving birth, shouting at her.  The baby later died.

I had to ask myself “What’s different between the behaviour of Maori pre-1840 cooking people alive and smoking Maori heads to order, from gang members doing what I have just described in Rotorua?” 

You know the answer. 

Welcome to tribal rule. 

This is why I am making a stand against co-governance, and why you should too. 

Now here is the mother of all questions – if Maori in 2022 are completely different in their psyche and DNA from Maori pre-1840, as some would say, where are the waves of outcry from other Maori in New Zealand who saw that programme? 

So far? 


I know some people would say. “Oh, there are good Maori and bad Maori. And the Maori in the Rotorua video were just the bad ones.”  

It’s a fair point. 

I know there are ‘good’ Maori.  I have people I know who are good Maori. 

But I say to the good Maori, where are you?!  

Why are you not in an uproar, tens of thousands of you, protesting loudly about what your own people are doing to your own people in Rotorua? 

Why aren’t you travelling in a convoy of hundreds of cars to Rotorua, determined to close down “Tiny” and his corrupt / disgraceful organisation? 

You are good at land marches but what about making a stand for righteousness? Making a stand against the enslavement / abuse of Maori women and their children? Making a stand against Maori bullying, intimidation, and violence? 

Where are you? 

Show us your goodness. We’ll know you by your fruit.

And where is Willy Jackson and Nanaia Mahuta? 


Too busy plotting the overthrow of New Zealand.

If Maori politicians do join in, protesting, it will only be for political reasons, grandstanding. 

We know that.

I have a theory based on decades of observation, and the theory goes like this. 

Good Maori in New Zealand will not intervene in Rotorua because they too will end up being bullied, intimidated, and possibly violently attacked, especially so when ‘interventions’ threaten to interrupt cash flow. 


There is an ugly and vicious cycle of violence, bullying, and intimidation deeply rooted in Maori culture, where might is right.

Listen to what to top criminologist Greg Newbold says about Maori violence here

And the more we move towards co-governance, the more inevitable it will be that the rest of New Zealand will not just be drawn into this cycle, but they will experience it personally. 

Many non Maori Kiwis have already, personally, been the victims of Maori bullying, intimidation, and violence. 

No thanks. No more. Enough is enough. Stop co-governance.

P.S As an educational psychologist I have a solution to fix this situation for Maori, and it has nothing to do with throwing more money at the problem.  Throwing more money the way of Maori does not fix the problem.  It’s like putting a band aid on cancer.  

We have to address the cause of the cancer. In one of my blogs, soon, I will share with you what I am planning.
