The Treaty of Waitangi is probably New Zealand's most contentious document. It is a treaty between the British government and some of the Maori rangatira (chiefs), signed in 1840. Due partly to translation issues, but mostly to different cultural understandings of concepts like authority, ownership, governorship and property. Many Maori believe and believed they were misled and cheated out of land and authority. The debate continues to this day, mostly within the remit of the Waitangi Tribunal which seeks to redress historical injustices.⠀ •⠀ •⠀ •⠀ #deliberatetravel #maorihistory #waitangi #tepapa #slowtravel #nztravel #factsaboutnz #historicalinjustice #waitangitribunal

The Waitangi Treaty was signed on February 6, 1840 by William Hobson, on behalf of the British Crown, and about 540 Māori chiefs. It was the first step towards the building of modern New Zealand. #waitangi #waitangiday #newzealand #newzealandhistory #maori #waitangitribunal #britishempire #britishexpansion #britishhistory #queenvictoria #newsouthwales #lostintranslation #february6 #february6th #6february #6thfebruary #1840

Morena whanau—today is Day 3 of the Freshwater Inquiry hearing in the Waitangi Tribunal. . Yesterday we presented submissions on behalf of our clients: we spoke to the degradation of their waterways that has occurred under the RMA framework and the failure of the Crown to recognise their customary ownership rights (native title) in their awa. The Crown says ‘no one owns freshwater’—we say this position is politically convenient and not based on fact or law. . The hearings continue today—follow us on Facebook for inquiry updates! . #waitangitribunal #freshwater #customaryrights #nativetitle #tinorangatiratanga #hapurangatiratanga #advocacy #tikanga #pollution #resourcemanagement #colonisation
