The Treaty Of Waitangi Mya and Sapphire

 On February the 6th 1840 there was a contract between the Maori and the British people. William Hobson brought the contract from Britain on behalf of Queen Victoria. About fifty of the Maori chiefs signed the contract.

Before the treaty was signed the Maori chiefs were arguing about what will happen in the future, and what the treaty would bring. They were hoping that there would be peace.

The 3 ps are the main principles of the treaty. They are protection, partnership and participation they are really important and they mean special things. Unfortunately the Maori and British versions meant different things.
