Te Tiriti o Waitangi

Te Tiriti o Waitangi

I hainahia te Tiriti o Waitangi i te ono o ngā rā o Pepuere 1840. He whakataunga tēnei i tū ki waenganui i te Karauna o Ingarangi me ngā rangatira Māori. Nā tēnei i para te huarahi mō ngā Pākehā ki te whakanuku mai i ōna kaiheke ki Aotearoa me te whakatū kāwanatanga. Ko tētahi o ngā whakataunga o te tiriti he tiaki i ngā tikanga me ngā mana Māori. Nā te tiriti i takea mai ai te tikanga rua o tēnei motu, ā, nā te tiriti anō i tuku i te mana ā-ture i āhei ai te whakatūnga o te pūnaha kāwanatanga.
