"Kia Ora" is the greeting of New Zealand. The first people to arrive to these islands were Polynesians who sailed from their ancestral homeland known as Hawaiki whose exact location has been lost over time. Today the Maori people preserve their cultural traditions by learning the Maori language, arts and crafts, music and dances taught in schools throughout New Zealand.
