Gangsterism replacing Maori culture

The Maori blame their disadvantaged background for growing gangsterism problem.

    In New Zealand, gangs have become an increasingly serious problem which is now threatening to replace the Maori culture, as more young Maori turn to a life of crime to find a sense of belonging.

    Although some blame the criminal networks for destroying the indigenous community's ethnic culture, the Maori say it is their disadvantaged background that pushes them to violence.
