Multiracial - Regions With Significant Multiracial Populations - New Zealand

New Zealand

The local Māori were joined from the 1840s onward by large numbers of Europeans colonists, and successive waves of other immigrants. Racial mixing is common, including with later Pacific and Asian immigrants, so that the vast majority of New Zealand's half million Maori now also have some other ancestry, and many who identify as Pakeha may also have Māori forebears.
