One theory states that maori came from Taiwan ,during the hang and then 3 kingdoms period, Hans attacked the native of Southern china, so they migrated to thetaiwan and then moved South.
 
I read the history of three kingdoms, at 3 century , South China was occupied by the Sun family, this family had a long struggle with the native there, finally they crushed the native, the Sun family also send ship to Taiwan. Some theory state that Maori came from taiwan , then moved to South Pacific. During the attack from the Sun family, the Native finally moved to today Fujian, it was their last strong hold, but they were crushed. So it was possible some of them moved to Taiwan and then to Southern Pacific. Sun navy to Taiwan was to chase them.

Search about Austronesian peoples and you will find the answer: that theory is nearly impossible.
 
1. They arrived to New Zealand more than thousand years after the time you are refering.
 
2. Maori by languaje and culture are polynesians and the movements of these peoples can be traced across the Pacific and Southeast Asia, until exactly, Taiwan, but the beginning of this movement began 8000 years ago, and they were austronesian peoples, not sino-tibetan like your story.

Those native  who lived in Fujian who was defeated by Sun family  was not Sino-Tibetian , they were  most likely Southern language group, just that Native of taiwan was Southern language group, of course there were other people moved to new zealand, but it was possible that native in Fujian hoad moved to taiwan then to the Southern pacific, they combined with other Southern language enthic group

The southern group is a branch of sino-tibetan languages; the natives of Fujian was the Min part of that branch, they were the ancestors of most of taiwanese from where developed the taiwanese language. But the first natives who today are only 2% of the population isn't Min but austronesic, they are the true brothers of maoris.
 
Then you have the problem of mainland China cultural items in the Pacific of that time, where are?

The map below (  there are better ones ) gives some indication of the ancient situation in south china before chinese expansion ( roughly 4 th century BC and after).
 
If  basically right, then : south west china  had tibeto-Burmese languages. In the other southern parts , austro -asiatic languages and  thai-kadai languages .
 
Fujian ( min yue area  )is presented as a question mark . Its between between daic and austronesian regions. They could have been still austronesians ( who, for example had remained on the coast or had settled there ) or daic speakers or maybe included groups of both ( IMO the best option for the time).
 
 
If the ancestors of  the taiwan natives came from south east china, then a linguistic relation with Daic and/or austro asiatic seems more promising than sino tibetan. Not that this automatically means that daic, evolved in austronesian languages or vice versa. A common proto language might have evolved in separate families, as sometimes suggested.
 
Maoris are ultimately  related to  the other austronesians but  in particular to tahitians and Cook islanders. They sailed from there and settled NZ some 1000 years ago.  Long open sea trip, some 3000 km.

^Not directly or related to han times.
 
When dealing with histories suggesting early contacts between china ( as geographic area or as chinese state) and places far east of Japan, the Hui-shen account , for example, has more potential. But that 's a whole other topic.

There is an interesting documentary where two Maori men take a DNA test that points to Taiwan. They go there and find that the Moari culture and native Taiwanese culture share the same customs/art/traditions. Very interestng. I was born and raised in NZ and have many Moari friends (including my gf) but when you tell them they are related to Taiwan they don't beleive it. Interesting stuff. Before the use of DNA testing many thought that the Moaris came from Hawaii or South America.

 Kia ora kautau katoa.
    Nickmard  is pretty well on the mark.
 The two Kiwi (NZ) lads in the doco , one Maori  , one Samoan , followed their respective DNA ,  back thru Polynesia to Taiwan.
 Maori , seeing as this thread is about them , are connected to all of the Pacific Peoples , and beyond.
This is the doco here .
 
""  Made in Taiwan

A simple DNA test which involves a swab in the mouth can reveal where your ancestors came from 30,000 years ago. In Made in Taiwan, molecular biology leaves the classroom as the two central characters, Nathan Rarere and Oscar Kightley, both of Polynesian descent, take us on a journey across the Pacific and into Asia in search of their roots.

During the course of the film, Nathan who opens the envelope with the results of his DNA sampling, discovers that his Mum whose grandparents were originally from Cornwall, has a maternal lineage which in fact stretches back to East Eurasia and America.

In Samoa, Oscar who is expecting the envelope to confirm his Polynesian roots is shocked to discover that his paternal lineage goes back to Central and South Eurasia. This discovery suggests Asian ancestry as his modern day descendants are found in the Middle East and the Himalayas.

With stunning photography of their Pacific to Asia voyage captured on HD, Nathan and Oscar replicate the journey taken by their ancestors in reverse, starting with the Cook Islands and Samoa, then Vanuatu, and ending eventually in Taiwan. There they are amazed by what they discover.

Oscar Kightley is a member of the popular Polynesian comedy group The Naked Samoans, who also produce the award-winning animated series bro'Town, which airs regularly on Link TV. Like Made in Taiwan, bro'Town highlights the racial melting pot that is contemporary New Zealand  ""

 Watch it if you get the chance .

A sample, from each island? Hardly a good sample of the population.

Its a weak study, and obviously made to be digested by the public, it seems it is more about socio-economics as New Zealand has become a prime country, for South-East/Chinese migrants, and the strong economic relationship with China and South-East Asia.

Yes exactly.  It was the millet farming complex of Cishan-Peiligang Jiahu of China at the upper YELLOW RIVER, not anywhere else as so many would like to think, which was the original linguistic homeland of Austronesians and their expansion.  The reason why the Austronesians look different to the people inhabiting the Yellow River today is because of different cultural backgrounds.  When Austronesians first developed out of their homeland they were 8000 plus years ago and had matriarchy.  It means the development of the society and language revolved around the females.  When they spread to other corners of their Austronesian diaspora they intermarried with other males.  The phenotypes changed, new words were introduced etc and the transition to patriarchy was made only in recent decades.  A lot of people are still stuck in the old fashioned mentality that just because the Yellow River has a lot of O3 that it must have just been Han.



Laurent Sagart's paper "The expansion of Setaria farmers in East Asia" and Stephan Lansing's independant studies on the Austronesian's expansion by way of matriarchs are good primers to the subject of Austronesian expansion.  The matriarchal expansion of Austronesians has already been corroborated independantly by many accounts but Stephan Lansing's research delved directly into the heart of the matter by using male haplotype analysis.

http://www.academia.edu/3077307/The_expansion_of_Setaria_farmers_in_East_Asia


If there was an ethnic patriarchal component to the expansion, the sampling would reflect dominancy.  They would reflect a pattern where no amount of invasion by outlier clades would affect the population because they would experience total extinction in about 50 generations time.  Stephan and his team had more than 100 generations of Austronesian expansion in the Pacific to precisely scale their mathematical model.  A patriline would become noticeably dominant in just several or so generations let alone 100.  Their passive dominancy itself would completely wipe out differentiated clades by having a reproduction bias of as little as 5 percent above the rest of the population.  Obviously this was not the case anywhere in Austronesian speaking territory.  The original expanding bloodlines were all matriarchal and were established with highly diversified male haplotypes in the differing regions.  The only reason different areas ended up with specific affinity to male haplotypes had to to with bottlenecking scenarios but never due to male dominancy.

Facial tattoos don't just come from anywhere.  There was a specific line of female inheritance.



A lot of Sino-Tibetans living in the Yellow River area thinking their land was always central to China may become displeased upon hearing this kind of research but it is what it is.  The truth is truth no matter how you slice it.  The barbarians of Zhou China had the distinction of living in areas like the Yangtze but the Yangtze itself was never the point of origin for these identities.  The barbarians had came from elsewhere such as the Yellow River and off they went in search of new land.  Undoubtedly they created a diaspora and overlapped generously with civilizational areas of China to be recorded in history.

For starters there is no doubt that Polynesians/Maoris like all humans ultimately have origins back to the Flood and pre-Flood world. As with most cultures/nations, Polynesian/Maori myth has versions of Trinity, Cain & Abel?, the Flood, and the Tower of Babel.
10 canoes might connect with 10 patriarchs?
Noah may be connected with any of either Nu’u “escaped the flood in a large vessel with a house on top of it” (Polynesia), Nu-wi (West Irian inscription), Moa “may have been the ancestor of mankind [like Adam], was given birth to in centre of the earth by earth-mother Papa” (Polynesia, moai statues?), Roua “father of the stars” (Polynesia), Lo(w)a "dwelt alone in primeval sea at beginning" (Micronesia), or a few other possibilities.
3 castes (tangata Rangitira/chiefs, tangata Maori/people, slaves) may connect with the tripartite caste system of many ancient cultures, which come from Noah cursing Ham via Canaan to be slave of Shem.
Joseph famine ~ great drought of Ta'aroa?
I'm very interested myself in finding out which of the 3 sons of Noah and which of the 70/72 nations of Genesis 10 they come from (as I am for other cultures/nations/races too).

There is no denying that genetic evidence points to the Maoris/Polynesians coming from south/east Asia (though maybe abit further south than Taiwan, like Indonesia). However there seems to also be some evidence for some origins from via South America [Atlantis]? The Waitaha say there were 3 peoples who made up their people inculding the redhaired Uru-kehu who came from west, and the Polyneisan "Maoriori" who came from the east.
It might even be possible that they could even have come from Antarctica since they came from a place that was ice then not ice then ice again?

Genetics/Genome/DNA is not necessarily wholly adequite by itself. One must also consider other historical, linguistic, mythological, etc information. NZ has a few different peoples (Tangata Whenua, Maoris, Morioris, Urukehu/star-walkers, Kritea/stone-people, Waitaha, Turehu, Patupaiarehe, Greenstone folk, Maru-iwi, Moehau, Rapuwai), and NZ/Polynesia has had alot of voyagers visits (Wakea?, Pourangohua, Ure?, Maui, Rata, Kiwa, Maku, Hui Te Rangiora, Hotu Matua, Hiro, Kupe, Toi). They also have a few different lands of origin (Hawaiki, Uru, Irihia, Atia, Manuka, Hiva). Polynesians have been classed as either/both Mongoloid or Caucasoid. Malayo-Polynesian/Austroneisan/Maori/Hawaiian has some connections with Indo-European/Aryan/Greek (eg rua/two, toro/three, lahui/leute/lay/laos, kahui/cow?) and Hamito-Semitic (wha "four", kahui/ka(ui)?)? The Pacific Islands could have had a number of stranded seafarers in ancient times?

Evidence for coming from the west/Asia includes:
DNA of those few Maoris traced to Taiwan.
Haplogroup info also seems to trace Polynesians (C2aO3) back to south-east Asia.
Polynesians come from Uru "west" which may be Ulu "end of the world" (name for jungled interior, Dayak, Sarawak, s.e. Asia). (Gilroy mentions it could be connected with Uluru of Australia. Lochore thought Uru was Subartu.)
Polynesians came from Hawaiki which Brunner thought relates to Java.
Ra "sun (god)" may be related to Egyptian Ra/Re/Rat (and/or Indian Ravi).
Maoris have connections with Dravidians/Tamils? (Joan Leaf. T Jantsang. Tamil bell in NZ.)
Turehu could possibly be connected with Turvasu/Druhayu?
Polynesians are sometimes classed as Mongoloid.
Easter Island script and Indus Valley Script similarities.
Kumara could connect with Indian god name?
If my theory is right that South America/Atlantis shifted west then Pacific would have been closer to Asia than Americas before then? (& Heyerdahl's currents may have been reverse direction then?)
Irihia could be connected with Inihia/Vrihia/India (Lochore connected it with Indo-China)?


Perhaps:
Uru ~ Ulu / Pasuruan
Manuka ~ Moluccas / Malacca
Irihia ~ Irian
Hawaiki ~ Java / Sabah
cult of the head ~ headhunters


Possible evidence for coming from the east/America/Atlantis includes:
Uru-kehu is "red haired", and Polynesians come from Uru "west" which may be related to the Urus/Uros of Peru/Bolivia (and to that Sitchin says inscriptions in South America have Uru sign). In this case "west" would be that America/Atlantis was/is west of Old World?)
The Kumara or sweet potato came from or is also found in South America.
Big/long ears in both areas. Tiki in both areas.
Polynesia and South America/Atlantis both had Heliolithic culture.
Ra "sun (god)" may connect with Illa-Ra of Peru.
Hokan-Siouan and Malayo-Polynesia similarities? Quechua & Maori similarities?
Moai statues similar to some American ones? (Atlas motif?)
10 canoes could connect with 10 kings Atlantis?
Toppled Easter Island statutes and NZ buildings/structures/monuments might date back to shift/"sinking" of South America/Atlantis?
Atua ~ Atau??
Easter Island script is possibly related to some ancient Peruvian script?
Pacific Islands might be the many other islands of Atlantis account (and the 7 islands of Persephone?)
Maori tikis & similar "Mexican tiki" (& Bolivian "tiki" standing-stone sculpture?).
Turehu could connect with Tula(n)/Tule/Toltec or Tuleyone?
Some Pacific/NZ stone structures have been compared with Tiwanaku stone building type.

I second that. Arthur you've done a great job breaking this down.  Thanks. Ya I always wondered if the Polynesians/Maori emigrated from the  eastern asias, originally from China then onwards to Taiwan.  

Some nice pictures of Maori people here

& further reading ,

The DNA does point towards China/ Taiwan. Similar thing with the Mayans. it is said their ancestry comes from China & the mayan dialect has some Mandarin vowel style of speech in it. 

Good day ya'll.

Sorry i didn't know about the replies & comments until recently. Thanks for that Kianakiwi (& Diaz).

A little bit more casual/tentative (i hope this doesn't wreck/ruin it). One thing i always look at in mysteries of origins of any nation is their "myths/legends"/traditions, and i also look at their pantheon of gods/deities to see if i can find their origins.  This is a quick first compilation of Maori/Polynesian pantheon of gods/deities:

Atua "God"
Atea/Avatea
Ao "light/white"
Arohirohi "mirages, [love]"
Auahituroa "comets, fire"
Fati/Fadu
Faumea/Haumea/Haumi(a(tiketike)) "wild/uncultivated food" (fem.)
Hapai (fem.)
Hiro
Hine(-nui-te-po)/Hina/Ina "1st woman, death, night, moon"
Hine Titama
Hine-ahu-one
Hine-uri
Hine-titamauri
Ina (fem.)
Ika-roa "the fish that gave birth to all the stars in the Milky Way"
Ikatere "fish, sea creatures"
Io "God, Jupiter"
Iowahine "woman" (fem.)?
Kane
Kaitangata
Kiwa "ocean/fish"
Kore?
Ku "war, man, stability"
Kui "chthonic demigod"
Kanaloa
Laufakanaa
[Lohiau/Lohau]
Lono
Mahuika/Mafuike "fire" (fem.)
Makeatutara "underworld"
[?"Marai" (ref Sykes)?]
[Marama "moon"?]
Maru "war"/"fresh water"?
Maui/Mawi "demigod, culture hero, trickster"
Mataroa/Mataora
Nu'u "Noah"
Moa
Moehau "yowie/yeti/bigfoot/apeman"
Nuvarahu/Niwareka (fem.)
Ono
Oro ["red, war"?]
Orongo
Papa(tuanuku) "earth" (fem.)
Po?
Poua-kai
Pourangahua "flew to NZ on back of bird"
Puhaorangi "celestial"
Punga "ugly creatures, all things ugly, sharks/lizard/rays"
Ra "sun"
Roua
Rata
Rangi(-nui/nuwi) "sky"
Rehua "star Antares, light, stars, sun, moon, healing"
Rona
Rongo(_ma_tane) "peace, cultivated food"
Rongomai
Rohe "spirit world"
Ru "Atlas"
Ruaumoko "quakes"
Sisimatai-laa "sun"
Sina "moon" (fem.)
Tawhaki
Te Po "the dark/night"
Te Kore
Te Otane "a giant"
Tama-nui-te-ra "sun"
Tane(mahuta) "birds, trees, light"
Tane-rore "shimmering air"
Tiki "1st man"
Tanga-roa "sea/ocean"
Tangotango "celestial"
Tawhiri(-matea) "storms, weather"
Te Ika a Maui "fish"
Te Anu-matao
Te Uira "lightning"
Tinirau "fish"
Tu(-mata-uenga) "man, stability, war"
Tu-te-wehiwehi "reptiles"
Tuna
Taniwha "lake monster/spirit"
Uenuku "rainbows"
Uru
Varima(-...) (fem.)
Vatea/Wakea
Whaitiri "thunder" (fem.)
Whiro "darkness, evil".


I haven't  yet cracked the origins of any much of them, though have lots of possible connections.

Take just one (Tane/Kane) for starters & example and see if anyone has any ideas.

Tane/Kane/[TeOtane?] possible candidate connections (considering any/all possibilities from reasonible to absurd):
Ziana (spirit of heaven, Chaldean/Sumerian)? Tian/Tien (heaven, Chinese)? Teanoi (Micronesian)?  Odanie (lord of light, Sumerian)? Etana? Votan? Cain (Biblical)? Kan (Mayan)? Kon (Peruvian)? Kane (North American Indian, ref said by the person that told me to be Heyerdahl or Fell)?

Note that Ziana is also found in Peru/Andes (refs Sitchin  'Lost Realms', Fitzgerald-Lee 'Great Migration'?).

Another thing i've always been interested in  but haven't been able to follow up is the Maori ancient genealogies.

This is a recent new tentative theory of suggested matches between Maori/Polynesian gods and Sumerian gods (and Biblical characters).We are suggesting cognate names matches ("Zeus = Dyaus") not just synonymous nature correspondences ("Venus = Aphrodite"). Please remember that these are only first/provisional tentative seemingly possible matches, and we know that it is possible that any or all of them could be wrong. (Whatever things we may be more or less wrong/dumb about, it doesn't mean that we are all/always wrong/dumb or that orthodox/others are all/always right/good/smart.) Maori gods origins on the way to being solved possibly?

table of Maori/Polynesian & Sumerian [Babel, & Hebrew/Biblical] possible matches:

Rangi(nui) ~ An/dAnu/Dingir [El]?
Papa(tuanuku) ~ Baba/Ba(h)u? Bagas?
Atea/Vatea/Wakea/Avatea ~ Utu/(A)Uduin/dUtuan/dUtuue [Adam/Awdawm/Adonai]??
Tu ~ Utu [Adam]??
Haumea/Haumi(a(tiketike))/Faumea ~ Nin-Hursaga/Nin-Kharsag [Khavah/Eve] / ... [Abel/Hevel]?
Tane(mahuta)/Kane ~ En-ki [Cain]?
Hine/Hina/Ina/Sina ~ Inana [Naamah]? Nin-...?
Rehua (star) ~ Serida [Seth]??
Rongo(mai)/Lono/Rogo/Ro'o/Ono ~ Nanna(-Suen) [Noah(+Shem)]?
Tawhiri(matea) ~ Zabar-dibba? Zababa/Zawawa [Japheth]?
Tangaroa/Kanaloa/Ta'aroa ~ Nin-girsu/Nimir-rud [Cush]?
Tu(mata-uenga)/Ku ~ Nin-Urta [Nimrod, earth-beast]??

less-likely possible alternatives:
Io/Ihoiho/Icho/Kiho/Kahiko ~ ... [...]?
Tane (probably-not) ~ An/dAnu/TeAnoi/Tian/Tien/Zi-ana??
Rehua (star) ~ Serida [Satan]??
Tu ~ Utu [Adam]? / Kur?
Hine/Hina/Ina/Sina/wahine/Iowahine ~ [Khavah/Eve (Chia/Chie / Quinoa/Keenwah)]??
Haumi(a)/Haumea (probably-not) ~ [Ham / Shem]?
Tu ~ Nin-Urta?
Io/Ihoiho/Icho ~ Is(h)kur [Asshur]??

We should mention that for some of the names beginning with T- and/or R- that:
- in Sumerian some gods had d- (for dingir "god") prefixed, eg dAnu, dNirgal, dUtu, dingir-Mah.
- in Malayo-Polynesian there is a d/r interchange.
- d/t interchange in/between some language groups.
- in Sumerian was an n/r interchange.

There are alot more explanations we have not included here, there are other disoveries/theories of ours that may connect with Maori origins (between Ararat or Sumer/Babel and NZ) eg Atlantis city is Tiahuanaco, the  great city of Asshur also seems to be Tiahuanaco/Atlantis city.

(Any right original connections are copyright re credit for discoveries & work me Sean/'A-R'.
Any dumb/wrong are at least 50 percent or more that fault of all the criminal things been/being done to me including fluoridated tap water, etc.)

I found some wrong correspondences in the Maori gods/deities table. (I regret posting it because i don't like making a fool of myself (and don't like wrong things detracting from my right/good discoveries/theses) and i don't like giving away helpful hints to rivals because i don't want to risk that they rather than me may get the credit for improved connections.) We have been trying to improve and prefect (and hence correct) the matches.

It turns out that it seems that Tane is not Enki/Cain, but rather Tane is Ziana/Enlil/Helel/Satan, and Tiki is Zikia/Enki/Cain. (In Sumerian Enlil/Ellil/Ellel (wind/ghost/spirit lord) separates An/heaven & Ki/earth, in Biblical Helel "Lucifer" (prince of air, angel of light) tries to take place of El-Elyon "God most high"; in Maori/Polynesian Tane (god of trees, light, birds) separates Rangi/heaven and Papa/earth. There doesn't seem to be an l in NZ Maori? Ziana "spirit of heaven"; Zikia "spirit of earth", Cain tiller of ground.)
  We seemingly may have been wrong Haumia & Eve & Ninhursaga? Ninhursaga at least may rather match the likes of Hine-ahu-one possibly?.
  It now seems that Tu(matauenga) (war) is not Utu/Adam or Nin-Urta/Nimrod, but is Dumuzi/Tammuz/Tubalcain (metals/iron)?
  Abel/Hevel (empty) may possibly rather match Whiro (darkness/evil)? (As seen by the correspondences, the Maoris/Polynesians seem to be Hamites/Cushites not Semites, so they reverse light/good/sun and evil/dark/moon. Japheth/Tawhiri and Abel/Whiro seemingly may correspond?)

Here are our newer tentative provisional correspondences, but remember any number of them may still be wrong (and may be corrected):

Io(matua-kore) ~ Im(dugud) [Yahweh/Yahuah/Adonai(-Elohim)]?
Rangi(nui) ~ An/Ani/dAnu / Dingir (Ilu) [El]?
Avatea/Vatea/Wakea/Atea ~ Utu/(A)Uduin [Adam/Awdawm / Adonai]?
  Ruaumoko/Ru/Moko ~ Girau/Girru/Nusku/Nuska [Nawkhash/Nahash]??
Tane(mahuta/rore)/Kane ~ Ziana / Enlil [Helel ben Sachar (Satan)]?
Tiki(au-a-ha) ~ Zikia / Enki(g) [Cain]?
Tu(mata-uenga)/Ku ~ Dumuzi/Dumugin [Tubalcain]??
Whiro ~ Nergal/Ne(r)urugal/Nirwal/Ngirra/Erra [Abel/Abgal/Hevel, or Irad]?
Rehua ~ Serida [Seth]?
Makeatutara ~ Meslamtaea [Methuselah/Methusalem]??
  Rongo(matane/mai) ~ Nanna(-Suen) [Noah(+Shem)]?
Tawhiri(matea) ~ Zabardibba / Zababa/Zawawa [Japheth/Diphath]?
Tangaroa ~ Ningirsu/Nimirrud [Cush]?
Tu(te-wehiwehi) ~ Nin-Urta [Nimrod / Earth-Beast]??
Mataora/Mataroa ~ Ninurta/Nindara [Nimrod]??

Note: Tangaroa (Polynesia/Maori) = Viracocha (Peru) = "Poseidon" (Atlantis).

Further tentative provisional corrections again (remember any could still be wrong) :

Rangi(nui) ~ An/dAnu/Ani / Dingir (Ilu) [El(ohim) (Adonai)]?
Avatea/Vatea/Wakea/Atea / Atua ~ d(A)gilim(ma)/Agilma [Yahweh/Yahuah/Adonai]?
Tu(mata-uenga)/Ku ~ Utu/dUtuue/(A)Uduin [Adam/Awdawm]?
Tane(mahuta/rore)/Kane ~ Ziana / Enlil/Ellil [Helel ben Sachar (Satan)]?
Hine/Hina/Ina ~ ... [Eve/Khawah]?
Tiki(au-a-ha)/Kii ~ Zikia / Enki(g) [Cain]?
Whiro ~ Nergal/Ne(r)urugal/Nirwal/Ngirra/Erra [Hevel/Abel/Abgal]??
/ Whiro ~ Gibil/Girru [Hevel/Abel]??
Ruaumoko ~ Dumuzi/Dumugin/Tammuz [Tubalcain]?
Haumea/Haumi(a(tiketike)) ~ Inanna [Naamah (&/or Ham)]?
Rehua ~ Serida [Seth]?
Rongo(matane/mai) ~ Nanna(-Suen) [Noah(+Shem)]?
Tawhiri(matea) ~ Zabardibba / Zababa/Zawawa [Japheth/Diphath]?
Tangaroa ~ Ningirsu/Nimirrud [Cush]?
Io(matua-kore)/Ihoiho/Icho ~ Is(h)kur [Asshur]??
Mataora/Mataroa ~ Ninurta/Nindara [Nimrod]??

From these (if more or less correct) Maoris/Polynesians seem to be mix of 1 Hamite/Cushite (Havilah/Asshur) [Atlantean], and 2 Shemite (Asshur / Joktan/Havilah)?
