Proposed name change[edit]

Most of the sources I have used the name Qocho or its variants such as Kocho or Khocho. I think a change to Qocho Kingdom might be more appropriate, and will do so if there are no objections. Hzh (talk) 18:08, 14 May 2013 (UTC)

Minor problem with the map used[edit]

The map lists Maoris as being present in New Zealand in 900CE. This is not correct. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 82.47.120.16 (talk) 00:57, 19 March 2016 (UTC)
