Number of full-blooded Maori living in New Zealand
The request was successful.
From: Nigel Gray
Dear Ministry for Culture and Heritage,
Can you please inform me of if there are any full-blooded Maori left in New Zealand, how many, and according to what genealogy records? Also, if not, what percentage is the greatest percentage of "purity" or least mix of race and most Maori?
If there are no full-blooded (by which I mean a genealogy line that shows only Maori descendants and no other race in lineage) can you please tell me when the last remaining full-blooded Maori was alive and date of death?
Any records along with this information verifying it would also be appreciated.
