Real Genealogists Don't Wear Ski Masks

A woman in New Zealand who thought she was attending a genealogical get-together was actually being recruited by a group of masked Maori "freedom fighters."

The woman, who did not want to be named, told the Herald she thought she was going to a Maori genealogy wananga (place of learning) in Ruatoki, about 15km inland from Whakatane, but was terrified after meeting balaclava-wearing footsoldiers.

"I honestly thought it was a whanau thing so I asked which family they belonged to, but they wouldn't say." [Link]
The woman refused to join, and told the men to "take those stupid bloody balaclavas off."


She probably wouldn't have been as terrified if they had been wearing baklava, which is how I originally read that sentence.


Real freedom fighters don't wear baklava.
