Letter to the Editor: NEW ZEALAND NATIVES ARE NOT “ABORIGINES”

Editor, Times-Advocate:

I love reading The Times-Advocate and the wonderful things happening for Escondido. I have resided in Escondido since 1995. I am a great fan for solving crossword puzzles. In your paper dated June 27 the “Super Crossword” 52 across “New Zealand Aborigine.” The native people of New Zealand are not “aborigines.” They are called “Maoris.” I am a Maori native of New Zealand. The natives of Australia are called aborigines. I thought I would bring it to your attention.

MEI FEPULEAI, Escondido
