Using the same reasoning the current inhabitants of the Faulkland Islands could also be considered indigenous.

So what about Falkland islanders? They must have some claim?
Kiwirob wrote:Juat because the Maori were isolated it doesn't really make their status any different from my other examples. Maori arrived in several waves of immigration from the Polynesia which lasted a couple of hundred years.
