  • Hi

    The answer here is A, the Maori feel in control of their land.

    In the exerpt "The Maori: Genealogies and Origins in New Zealand”, the writer tells a couple of things that make us infer that they feel in control of their land.

    The writer explains how the Maori "chopped down the forests to find Tâne" and how they "searched out Haumia and Rongo by digging into the soft earth". The writer also states how the Maori mastered "anything that they decide to conquer: the forest, the sea, the food, and the earth". Therefore, from this paragraph we can infer that the the Maori feel in control of their land, so the answer is option A.
