Story: Waikato tribes

Māori land loss, 1910 (2nd of 2)

Māori land loss, 1910

This map from the centennial historical atlas series shows in yellow the land owned by Māori in 1910. It is evident that even at this stage, over 40 years after the land confiscations, very little of the Waikato area was in Māori ownership. The confiscations (known as Te Raupatu-o-Waikato) condemned the Waikato people to destitution for over a century.
