This tinted lithograph by George French Angas, published in 1847, was based on his travels in the North Island in 1844. It shows several Māori on a path through the bush. Although they were originally a coastal Pacific people, the image suggests that they were at home in the New Zealand bush by the time Europeans arrived. They travelled through the forest and used it as a source of food and medicine.
