The facts must be written in your own words. Do not simply copy and paste the facts from the website☺.
Three facts about the New Zealand People:
1. There are 4.4 million New Zealander's living in New Zealand. 69% of them are Europeans, 14.6% are Maori, 9.2% is Asian, and lastly, 6.9% is non-Maori and Pacific Islander.
2. Over 400 years before Christopher Colombus and the whole of Europe who was afraid that they were going to plummet off the edge of the world, Maori's travelled thousands of miles across the immeasurable Pacific ocean in their small canoe-like boats and became the first settlers of Aotearoa. Even til this day, Maori culture is the main part of New Zealand's National Identity.
3. New Zealand's European settlers were very brave and rough and also independent. before they started to set up farms and settlements, they had to clear the land. Usually, this was a dangerous and risky activity to do. The environment and exposure around them forced them to become strong and multi-skilled.
