The Pathway - Summary | By Fraidoon

This week for reading our group has been focusing on how the Treaty Of Waitangi came to be. The treaty of Waiting was an agreement between the Maori and the English. During the 1700's - 1800's the British were the superpower of the world. They have colonised many countries that are now independent. The British bought land in New Zealand for things as little as a pound. Even though a pound was useless in New Zealand because they did not use cash. British settlement had a huge impact on New Zealand because that helped to develop the New Zealand that we know of today. Some British people back then weren't respecting the culture and laws the Maori's had put in place. The book we read was basically a timeline that lead up to the signing of the treaty of Waitangi.
