2. Pasifika people
Pasifika people living in New Zealand represent at least 22 different cultures and speak an even greater number of languages. Therefore the term "Pasifika people" does not refer to a single "nationality" or "ethnicity" but is a collective term for a diverse range of people from the South Pacific region. The 1996 census showed that Pasifika people include a higher proportion of those aged under 15 than the national average.
Most Pasifika peoples live in Auckland, Wellington, Waikato, Bay of Plenty, Manawatu-Wanganui and Canterbury.
