The Church Missionary Society's Samuel Marsden (centre) had met many Māori in New South Wales before he first visited New Zealand in 1814. This drawing shows him arriving at Rangihoua, Bay of Islands, and meeting the family of the local chief Ruatara. He had first encountered Ruatara five years earlier while travelling by ship from England to Australia.
