“Treaty of Waitangi”

The Treaty of Waitangi was signed on 6 February 1840 at Waitangi in the Bay of Islands, New Zealand. The treaty is an agreement between the British Crown and local  Māori rangatira (chiefs) and stands as the country’s founding document. To mark this day, I have posted a selection of resources and references on my Wall at Google-Plus:
