A researcher who specialises in Maori in Australia says Maori who work in Aboriginal communities are highly valued by the authorities there because they have an ability to connect with indigenous Australians in a way other people can't.

While there have some reports of tension and resentment among some Aborigines towards Maoris, trouble between the groups is rare.
