A little-known Maori philosophy
Thanks L-O-A

By John
This poor scholarship was really messing up my investigation into whether Maori believed in reincarnation. Unfortunately I have seen this poem quoted on other sites! I have found little evidence other than an indication that it have been the case in exceptional circumstances, eg some Tohunga may reincarnate for a very particular reason. This link: http://www.theosociety.org/pasadena/theos/v12n01p11_ancient-wisdom-of-the-moaris.htmg gives some information, strangely from a Theosophcal site!
