The Māori are the indigenous people of Aotearoa or what is today New Zealand. Famous for their haka, poi, and face tattoos. They're descended from Polynesians, the greatest voyagers the world has ever known. They hunted gigantic like mega-birds, terrified European colonists, and built a rich culture while isolated from the rest of the world.

But who are the Māori, what is their history, and what exactly is a Trojan Whale? Well, Let's Find Out!

I'd like to thank the Associated Press for providing me with footage for this video
