Treaty of Waitangi

Treaty of Waitangi

I found interesting is that  the Aborigines got there children taken away from there Mather and father.
I found interesting is that  the Maori got 34.5 million acres of land and 170 million dollars.

Why did they get that much land and money.

Te Reo, Term 4 2016.

This term we have been learning all about the Marea. We have learned that…….

  • The Marae is an important focal point for the community.

  • The Marea is a place where people can express their values with dignity.
  • There are many kawa ( protocols) that prevail on the mar.
  • Marea kawa (protocols) can differ between mareas and iwi.
