            The 1877 legal case Wi Parata v Bishop of Wellington centred on the ownership and use of the Whitireia Block, near Porirua. In refusing to inquire into ownership of the block, the Supreme Court judges dismissed the relevance of the Treaty of Waitangi: So far indeed as that instru...ment purported to cede the sovereignty - a matter with which we are not directly concerned - it must be regarded as a simple nullity. Over the past 25 years, this simple nullity view of the Treaty has been castigated and the infamous case seen as symbolic of the neglect of Maori rights. Now, David V Williams takes a fresh look at the case, affording new insights into both Maori-Pakeha relations in the nineteenth century and the legal position of the Treaty. Behind the apparent dismissal of the Treaty as a simple nullity lay deep arguments about the place of Maori and Pakeha in Aotearoa New Zealand, which are as relevant now as they were then.
