'Maori and Europeans were encountering one another for the first time not just along the shorelines of New Zealand but also on the streets of Melbourne, Liverpool and New York.'From the late eighteenth century, Maori travellers spread out from New Zealand across the globe. They t...ravelled for a variety of reasons - curiosity, adventure, commerce, political missions or under duress.
