MAOLI

Swapping T for K and R for L reveals kanaka maoli as being linguistically close to the rest of Maoridom.

While maori in Aotearoa prefer to be known as tangata whenua, in Avaiki, the Cook Islands, most people recognise links with Hawaii.

Like Maohi in Tahiti, kanaka maoli face historic injustices dating from missionary times.
