Governor Grey and Te Rangihaeata

Governor Grey and Te Rangihaeata

In 1851 Governor George Grey went to Waikanae to meet local Māori. In this 1852 lithograph he is seated listening to a speech by the Ngāti Toa leader Te Rangihaeata. Grey wanted to ensure that Māori were part of New Zealand's representative government and this was one of the reasons he asked for a suspension of the 1846 constitution.
