Being taken for a white (which essentially I am, plus Roma) with a Maori missus, I sometimes got a bit of insulting stick from Maori men, many of whom seem to think that "their" women are only out on loan to Pakeha (European).

Here was this big Maori fella (not full-blood, more white than brown) at a party, himself with a white cook dancing and after a while he sidled up and started chatting, rudely asking my wife if "he" (pointing in my direction) was her husband, which she affirmed in no uncertain manner.
Turning to me, he said, well you know, you look after her or we'll take her back. I replied "who's we" Big Boy. and where will you take her to ?" While he was trying to think of an answer I asked him "where are you from ?" a loaded question meaning "what district does your family come from ?".
He sez "Up north" to which I moved closer to him and said "Well you may own the North, but I'm a gypsy and we own the world. You put one hand on my wife and I'll put a gypsy curse on you !"
The guy went whiter and started stuttering and apologizing all over the place. Maori are very dicky about those sorts of things.
Bugger me days a year later, we had one of Marg's old Maori friends from her young days around for drinks with his Maori wife and he comes up with the same thing. That fucked the evening up something wicked and his wife apologized to Marg and me and they left. I went out to the gate over an hour later, and there's their car just down the road parked and she was tearing strips off him still.
They're not all like that but there's a core of them that seem to resent white boys having "their" women, even though it's no trouble they having "white bread" for breakfast. Not as if there's any full Maori left anyway, they are all mixed breed, just like us honkies.
