Even though New Zealand was colonized by the Britishers in 1840, it has quite a different history compared with Australia. Some of the oft reported differences are that the earlier settlers, the Maoris, live a pretty good life compared with the Aborigines in Australia. They are also not marginalized, nor are their children taken away and the difference in life expectancy between the two is as high as 10 years. Soon before and after New Zealand was annexed and established as a colony, it was mainly the whalers and pilgrims who settled there.
