You did v well with the Indian "cultural appropriation" question, so here's a similar one. I'm a few generations down from full blooded New Zealand Maori, am white passing, but am a member of a Iwi (tribe) and fully accepted by them despite having a lot of Pakeha(white/European) blood too. I'm worried about embracing this part of my heritage and culture in case white people decide I'm appropriating Maori culture. Bear in mind my iwi fully accepts me. What can I do/say if I'm accused?
