He Whakaputanga — The Declaration of Independence 1835. $24.95
Big changes are afoot for the indigenous people of Aotearoa New Zealand. European whalers and sealers have begun camping along the beaches. Māori are quick to recognise new prospects for trade — and at first the future looks promising. However, as more and more settlers arrive, challenges begin to arise regarding land and the disregard of Māori tikanga. Māori chiefs begin to meet to manage these changes. After 25 years of meeting together a document is prepared called He Whakaputanga. This document declares the independence of the chiefs and is designed to secure their future — and was to become a foundation stone that would make Te Tiriti o Waitangi possible.
This book is a ‘prequel’ to our Treaty series / Chronicles of Paki — Series III
The story is sourced from both written history, and also oral history that came to light in the Ngāpuhi Waitangi Tribunal discussions. It tells of the Confederation of Chiefs who worked together to navigate more than 20 years of early settler activity, culminating in: He Whakaputanga o te Rangatiratanga o Nu Tīreni (The Declaration of the Independence of New Zealand).
…this is New Zealand’s untold story.
The ‘Chronicles of Paki’ series suits ages 8 to 88.
The Treaty of Waitangi Series. $64.90
Series Three of The Chronicles of Paki begins with the extraordinary changes in thinking that took place in Britain during the abolition of the slave trade. This thinking, combined with the request from Māori for British intervention in New Zealand, created a truly remarkable event. A treaty was put in place, that contrary to past British practices, sought to protect the land and rights of indigenous people.
This series of children’s books follows the events that took place from the time of the slave trade through to the week leading up to the signing of the Treaty. It then skips through time describing what happened over the following decades.
The stories outline the immense disappointment experienced by Māori as the high ideals of the Treaty were ignored. They then go on to describe the land march led by Dame Whina Cooper which helped bring the disregard for New Zealand’s founding document to the nation’s attention and conscience.
The stories conclude with a look at how the treaty injustices have been addressed in recent years as New Zealand works to right the wrongs of the past.
