Indian New Zealanders or Indo-Kiwis are New Zealanders of Indian origin or descent, living in New Zealand Although the term "Indian" is more of a nationality, rather than ethnicity given the vast racial diversity within the populations of India, it generally denotes people with subcontinental heritage The term includes Indians born in New Zealand including immigrants from India, Indo Fijians, Indians born in Africa such as South African Indians and Indians in East Africa or any New Zealander with both parents of Indian heritage Although sometimes times the Indo-Kiwi definition has been expanded to people with mixed racial parentage with one Indian parent or grandparent, this can be controversial as it generally tends to remove the ethnic heritage or identity of the foreign parent or grandparent which may be termed as insensitive to those with mixed parentage, who tend to value both their Indian and non-Indian parents, grandparents
