Tregear states that the oldest traditions in New Zealand held that fairies were actually living on the islands when the Maori first arrived. These were classified into three groupings called the Nagati-Kura (“descendants of the Red One”), the Ngaki-Korako (“descendants of the Albino”), and the Ngati-Turehu (“descendants of the Dimly-Seen”). Tregear tells us that the outward appearance of the light-skinned fairies was such that the Maori, at the first arrival of the Europeans, presumed they must be related. Consequently, certain Maori terms for objects associated with the Europeans include a prefix that means “fairy.”
