I have always been fascinated in History i.e. Gallipoli, Crete and mankind’s desire for power.

My search for the truth began in 1997 after I had become friends with a neighbour of ours in Bush Road, Te Puke.  I had taken up an invitation to visit, where he had built his new house in a deep gully.  After seeing David’s bone carvings and noticing some of them looked of Polynesian or Celtic design, we got talking about the latest book I was reading of Maori and pre-Maori history.  The book titled “From Hawaiki 2000 BC to Hokianga” was written by Joan Leaf.  He then took me outside where he pointed out a large hollow in the ground and said “This is where the last of the Rotoiti Turehu (white people) lie.  I must have looked at him as if he were nuts, because he said sharply “It’s true, the hollow is here because their bodies had rotted down and the earth caved in upon their bones creating a large hollow.” 

I had only one option now, my curiosity had been roused and that was to go and see Joan Leaf in Hellensville.  Jock Leaf, her husband was a Ngapuhi elder.  Being a Polynesian/Maori does not immediately make Jock right, so while I was in Auckland Joan said I may as well look up Ross Wiseman who wrote “New Zealand’s Hidden Past” and Martin Doutre who wrote “Ancient Celtic New Zealand”  I was in fact shocked to find so many facts about the race of people who were here long before Polynesians were brought here.  Refer to National Geographic, June 2009  “Made in China” pages 112 to 122.  Note 5th paragraph left column, page 122 re China ruling the sea trade routes, 2,000 years ago, finally arriving in New Zealand 1410.  I no longer believe any of our so called historians, because they all take the easy way out and follow politically correct directives. 

For the readers benefit I have super condensed everything in the book so that the three main non-fiction related events in History can be read in ten minutes.  Start pages 45-58

I will give $5,000.00 to the Christchurch Earthquake Appeal in the name of the first person who can prove the three stories all wrong


Take care and be caring
