Excerpt from Tales of a Dying Race

A Few weeks after the beginning of the century, a mixed company of troops from India visited the islands of New Zealand for the edification of the inhabitants. A magnificent Sikh was asked what he thought of the Maoris. 'Phaugh!' said he, 'they are pigs!'

Meeting one of his Maori friends, the interlocutor said, 'Paramena, what is your opinion of these Indian troops?' 'Wella,' said Paramena, 'some fine men, rangatira, like you an' me. Some no good, taurekareka, like the monkey. But all know t'e drill. Where they get t'e drill? T'e pakeha' (the white man) 'he teach them. Now then. T'e Maori he fighting man too. You gif him t'e gun, an' he jus' as good as these men. But he no want t'e drill - he got it pefore t'e pakeha come.'

Of a truth, the Maori takes to fighting intuitively. For over seven hundred years his was a fighting race, and then came the pakeha and spoiled everything.
