New Zealand: Skeletons in the Cupboard

How Evidence of an Ancient Civilization of the Sun in New Zealand Was Buried, Suppressed and Forgotten

New Zealand. Skeletons in the Cupboard. Episode 1. The Redheads is a documentary that sheds light upon an ancient civilization that was present in New Zealand before the 13th century when the Maori people migrated to the island.

This ancient civilization built sites all around New Zealand aligned to the solstices and equinoxes. Most of these sites are now partially or completely destroyed. Skeletons that were found belonging to these ancient people have been reburied and their existence is concealed from the general public. The documentary also features an interview by a descendant of this now lost ancient civilization.

From the description of the film by Plummtree Productions:

New Zealand. Skeletons in the Cupboard — Part One— The Redheads digs deeply into the now denied history of the early Patuparaiaehe, the Turehu, the Urekehu and the once powerful but peace loving red or golden-haired, green-eyed early inhabitants — the Ngati Hotu and the Waitaha. Who are these people, where did they come from and where are they now?

In the second installment, Skeletons in the Cupboard. Episode 2. Under The Carpet, Narrator, Presenter and Co-Producer Gabi Plum continues to reveal the hidden secrets of New Zealand’s past and its earliest inhabitants of Polynesia.

About the author



  • I also watched these documentaries a few months ago and found them an important contribution to the evidence that is emerging to confront the standard, limited and manipulated version of history that serves to perpetuate false ideas of who we are and where we came from.

    • Well said Ella. Good to remember why there’s so much weight on the view of how our history transpired, because like you say it would change the way we look at ourselves now. What if there was an Atlantis. What if there were people in the past who knew a lot more than we do about how the universe works. What if our history does go back perhaps hundred thousands of years. What if there were already global connections in a long past (seeing all the remnants dedicated to the sun all over the world for example.)

      Because, definitely, certain beliefs on how we came to be also very much influence our view of our purpose here in life. Because if you see yourself merely as a monkey that happened to have evolved, then fullfilling the normal animalistic goals any animal would have would be all there is to do right? To me it’s really amazing how ridiculous that belief is, yet how widespread. I don’t think it’s a coincidence though.

      • Yes, exactly. I don’t see that necessarily natural evolution and divine intelligence behind creation are mutually exclusive, but certainly the idea that humans are simply evolved from apes through a series of lucky accidents and the constant reference to Darwin’s theory works to blind us to our divine origins. There’s so much evidence to support a completely different story – yes it seems to be systemically suppressed.

  • This is a terrific documentary. I watched it a few months ago I really liked it. Great work by the people who worked hard to make it. I found it very intriguing to hear about this mysterious past of New Zealand. About how there were people there before the Maori and how all sorts of evidence of it can still be found today! So cool.

    The experts interviewed know what they’re talking about in my opinion and seem like good people, even if they’ve had to face bad treatment for their ideas or findings. That they’re still standing up for it even in the face of that shows to me that they’re sharing something they see truth in. Also Monica Matamua of the Ngati Hotu is just such a cool granny!

    It’s very interesting and sad though to see the pattern, once again, of how evidence which points to a different history seems to be suppressed and fought. This seems to happen in all avenues of life. Real spiritual knowledge and information seems to be opposed, scientific breakthroughs such as those of ‘free energy’ are violently opposed, as well as areas in the medical field, information on UFO’s kept secret etc. But it also very much seems to be the case in the archaeological fields as this documentary shows, which I hadn’t expected.

    Would definitely recommend this documentary.

  • These two documentaries are incredibly thought-provoking in what they reveal. It’s fascinating to see footage and interviews with people today, who share Maori ancestry, but come from a different lineage and have retained distinct features, such as the red or blond hair described in the quotation above.

    I’ve only seen parts of the two documentaries so far, but have already gained some real gems of information, coming from oral histories, ethnographic and anthropological perspectives. I’m definitely looking forward to exploring the content of these documentaries more in depth.
