What if? The Treaty of Waitangi (Te Tiriti o Waitangi)

  1. 1. Point Of Divergence Zuhairha Khan The Treaty of Waitangi (Te Tiriti o Waitangi)
  2. 2. What is “The Treaty of Waitangi?” Treaty of Waitangi(Te Tiriti o Waitangi) was a written agreement made in 1840 between the British crown and more than 500 Māori chiefs this allowed them to live together in New Zealand under a common set of laws or agreements. After the Treaty of Waitangi was established, New Zealand became a colony of Britain and Māori became British subjects, the Māoris, and the Europeans had different understandings and expectations of the treaty which caused many conflicts, which was later solved. And so every year in New Zealand, “Waitangi Day”, a public holiday is held on 6th February to commemorate the signing of the Treaty of Waitangi.
  3. 3. The Māori chiefs changed their mind about the agreement and didn’t sign the treaty at all because their strong expectations knew what the effect would be on them and their tribe in the future, so they decided not to sign it and therefore the Treaty of Waitangi wasn’t signed. Point Of Divergence of the Treaty of Waitangi:
  4. 4. Event 1: The Māoris might not have been safe without the treaty.
  5. 5. Evidence: Because without the treaty the Māoris weren’t under any law they were independent without any government and so they were at a risk of being attacked by other countries.
  6. 6. Event 2: The British wouldn’t be able to claim the land or anything and wouldn’t have come together with the Maoris.
  7. 7. Evidence: Because New Zealand was an independent country, the British couldn’t just walk in and make demands. Māori chiefs ruled their tribes, so the British needed them to accept first.
  8. 8. Event 3: The Māori chiefs might not have lost their power and their ownership of their lands, forests, fisheries and other possessions.
  9. 9. Evidence: Because the Māori and the English version of the treaty had differences. The wrong understandings on the Māoris side lead them to lose their power.
  10. 10. What would be different? Without the Treaty of Waitangi the British and Māori wouldn’t have come together and the Māori’s would have been in a much weaker place today and without the treaty the Māori’s wouldn’t have been safe because other people like the French, Spanish, Russians and the Americans could have caught interest in New Zealand and would have been ready to strike.
