Event Details

In this Whare Kōrero presentation, local Treaty historian and Heritage Tairāwhiti Committee Member Jane Luiten will provide an informative introduction for those wanting to know more about the nuts and bolts of colonisation in Aotearoa.  
The English Treaty of Waitangi, tendered by the Crown, guaranteed to the Chiefs and Tribes of New Zealand and to their respective families and individuals full, exclusive and undisturbed possession of their lands and estates, forests, fisheries and other properties they collectively or individually possessed.   
Yet within 60 years of this treaty, the land remaining in Māori possession accounted for just 10 per cent of the colony. 
In her presentation, Jane unpicks the 19th-century policies and practices that brought about this result.
