of, from, or pertaining to the Māori
- A member of the indigenous people of New Zealand.
- The plural Maori is now typically preferred, as the term is invariant in Māori; the regular plural is now often considered outmoded and often even derogatory in New Zealand English.
- The form Māori (with a macron) is preferred by some New Zealanders as a more accurate reflection of the Maori self-designation (even when an Anglicised pronunciation is used). A double vowel is occasionally used instead of a macron; this was formerly more common, but has fallen out of use since the Māori Language Commission's decision to adopt the macron (tohutō) as the standard representation of Māori long vowels.
