Description of this Book

The story of Te Tiriti o Waitangi in Tauranga is a fascinating one, told for the first time in this bilingual picture book. The document arrived in Tauranga after many years of violence and bloodshed had decimated the local population. Just days before the Treaty's arrival, a Tauranga chief was tricked into attending peace talks before being murdered and eaten. Not all the chiefs of Tauranga Moana signed the Treaty; those who didn't wanted to govern themselves, those who did were looking for protection against their enemies. However, just two years after the signings, three Tauranga Treaty signatories were murdered and eaten in what was one of the last cannibal feasts near Tauranga. CONTENTS: Otamataha Pa massacre and Herald visit; Treaty of Waitangi; Te Papa Mission Station; Murder of chief Ponui; Tauranga Treaty (Sheet 5); Nuka Taipari and Maungatapu Pa; Hori Kingi Tupaea and Otumoetai Pa; Missionary James Stack; Sack of Ongare Pa; Peace Treaty; Golden Age of Maori enterprise; New Zealand Wars; Tauranga Treaty of Waitangi settlements; Text of the Tauranga Treaty; Tauranga Treaty signatories; Tauranga Treaty witnesses; Tauranga Moana timeline (Early history, Musket Wars, New Zealand Wars, Treaty of Waitangi settlements) Glossary; Treaty activities and Index.
