Tika (true) or Teka (false): Common Misconceptions About Māori Philosophy
Does Māori Philosophy even exist? Isn't it just mythology & primitive animism? These are some common misconceptions held by some very famous men including Charle's Darwin, Edward B. Tylor, George Grey and Elsdon Best. In this video I discuss these misconceptions and I also share some local history about Takapuna Beach in Tāmaki Makaurau Auckland, including stories about a three fingered chief & dead bodies in trees. This video is the 2nd in my Uncovering Māori Philosophy series.
