    We've been in NZ in significant numbers since the early 1800's, of course people breed much quicker back in those days.

    Anyhow, are the Maori like the Australian Aboriginals in that their males are biologically incapable of impregnating women of European descent?
    ??? I can't say I've ever heard of abbo's being biologically unable to impregnate European women (unfortunately). You must be pulling my leg. Most abbo's live in seperate areas to Europeans so it rarely ever happens anyway.
    A lot of NZer's are mongrolized and since most Maori are part-White (to varying degrees) the children will often look almost fully White in terms of skin colour but will often have hybrid facial structures.

    However mixed-race people only made up about 1.5% of the 2006 census so most people don't identify with colonial-era heritage involving Maori.

    Well, after I posted that I realized I probably should have included a source. Nevertheless, I have heard this from several people who would even be described as "mainstream" in their attitudes towards race, and it does seem plausible to me considering how long Aborigine were isolated from other peoples. But if no-one else here has heard of it then it must be a myth.

    Actually, you don't seem to know a lot do you? Australia and New Zealand have had settlement for more than 200 years. So, according to my calculations, that is 8 generations - whoa, that means 256 ancestors! There may even be 9 generations, going back to the First fleet, which would make it around 512.

    Can you do the maths?

    No, but I can do the "math."

    Sure it's possible, it just sounds strange since I've never heard someone say they were "1/128th" of any nationality.

    For me to trace my family back that many generations would in many cases take me to the 1700s, and all of them would be located within the northwest quadrant of Europe. (That last part might be a bit of a digression, but I am quite proud to be of entirely European extraction. )

    Perhaps because most people stop worrying about it when it gets to smaller than 1%

    Sounds like there are almost as many half bred Maori as there are Metis in Canada and the northwestern states.
