The Treaty of Waitangi

The Treaty of Waitangi was first signed on the 6Th of February 1840. It was signed by the British crown and Maori chiefs from the North Island of New Zealand. The Treaty gave the Maori rights of British Subjects and a ownership of their lands and other properties. Copies of the Treaty was taken around New Zealand and over the following months many other chiefs signed it.

I think that it is a good thing that the Treaty of Waitangi was made so everybody can carry it on and make it useful. When I have trouble with friends or family we can make our own little Treaty so it will be all fair. I know that rules were meant to be broken but unless we still had some time together with kindness.
