All about the Treaty

Do you know all about the “Treaty of Waitangi”? Well, let me tell you all about it.... Waitangi comes once a year .... It’s about the Maori and the British, came to the bay of island to sign the treaty. The Maoris and the British Queen Both agreed to sign it so everyone can come together

The 3 p’s which is Protection Partnership and Participation was used by the Maori and British. The British wanted to Protect the land but then the maoris wanted to do the same. British and the Maori’s all wanted to participate in the land but then the british didn’t want to share the land.

When they all gathered together to sign the treaty, the British thought that if they would sign the treaty, they would rule over nz. The Maoris thought that if they would sign the treaty then they would have more trade and have peace. They also thought that British will control the settlers. Somehow they started trading and it became more peace.

So every once a year, Waitangi is celebrated in New Zealand. Waitangi is very special here in New Zealand for some people. This is what Waitangi really means. “Treaty of Waitangi”.
