New Zealand, located in the southwestern Pacific Ocean, is an island country that geographically comprises two main landmasses, North Island (Te Ika-a-Māui) and South Island (Te Waipounamu), and several smaller islands. There is evidence that the first inhabitants of New Zealand moved there around 1300 C.E.

The reading and the lecture are about the first group of inhabitants of New Zealand. Whereas the author of the reading states that there is evidence that indigenous people, the Māori, were the first settlers, the lecturer explains that although this is true, the evidence was re-examined and new conclusions were expalined. The lecturer casts doubt on the main points made in the reading by providing three reasons.

First of all, according to the passage, the Māori, an indigenous Polynesian people of New Zealand is the evidence that they were the very first people who is an inhabitant of the country. In addition, the passage mentions that the Polynesian settlers developed their own culture and language. On the contrary, the lecturer refutes this point by mention that most New Zealand people are originated from Europe and the Māori are the minority. Furthermore, the lecturer explains that it was impossible to determine that there were no people living in New Zealand before the Māori.

Secondly, the reading mentions that because off primitive agriculture of human origin, trees were replaced by grass, according studies in pollen. Nevertheless, the lecturer disputes this point by mention that if trees were replaced by grass, this does not prove that humans set the fire for primitive agriculture. Moreover, the lecturer mentions that poor rainfall  causes fires and this fires can clear the area.

Finally, the article states that human occupation was proved using the radiocarbon dating method. In addition, the passage mentions that this method can estimate how old something is and when originally exists. On the other hand, the lecturer mentions that there is evidence of items older, for example, rat bones, which means that they were brought to the island quite before the Maori. Moreover, this proves that other settlers were living there before the Maori.
