Kōrero: Treaty of Waitangi

Wairau affray, 1843

This audio guide relates the story of the 1843 land dispute at Wairau, near Blenheim, which resulted in almost 30 deaths. This tragic incident was triggered by questionable land dealings by agents of the New Zealand Company. It led both Māori and non-Māori to doubt whether the undertakings given in Te Tiriti o Waitangi would be upheld.
