The Pathway

For the first week of reading with Mrs Anderson we are learning about the treaty of Waitangi. The treaty of Waiting is 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 used to buy land for things as little as a pound. A pound was useless in New Zealand because they did not use cash. British settlement had a huge impact on New Zealand. British people weren't respecting the culture and laws the Maori's put in place. The book we read was a timeline that lead up to the treaty of Waitangi.
