The Maori are a Polynesian people who arrived in New Zealand in the 13th century. The first missionaries arrived in New Zealand in 1814 where they began a translation of the Scriptures. Thomas Kendall devised a system of writing the Maori language that needs only fourteen letters.
The first portion of the Bible to be printed in Maori was printed in 1833 with the first New Testament printed in 1837. The complete Bible was printed in 1868 and has been revised several times.
