Conversely, some indigenous people from Australia found their way to New Zealand. I've been looking into the stories of pre-colonial whale and seal hunters who worked off Australia's southern coasts around 1800 - 1830. To their eternal shame,many of them abducted indigenous women to provide slave labour and sexual services. The women travelled vast distances with these men, the same women being recorded in Tasmania, kangaroo Island, Sydney and as far afield as King George Sound. One woman and her children was taken to New Zealand but all the males of the party were killed and she was left behind there. I think she survived by virtue of being non-white.
