The arrival of Europeans to New Zealand starting from the 17th century brought enormous change to the Māori way of life. Māori people gradually adopted many aspects of Western society and culture.

On This Day (5/31/1884): In 1884 Tawhiao I, leader of the Waikato tribes and the second Maori King (Matutaera Te Pukepuke Te Paue Te Karato Te-a-Potatau Tawhiao) traveled to London to try and persuade Queen Victoria to honor the Treaty of Waitangi.

The TREATY OF WAITANGI, signed on February 6, 1840, is regarded as a founding document of New Zealand (NZ). The Treaty lies at the heart of land issues between Maori and Pakeha (foreigners). The Maori believed they were allowing Pakeha to settle in NZ in exchange for political/military protection. The Pakeha believed the Maori had surrendered all lands and sovereignty to the British crown. Currently individual tribes are using the Treaty to reclaim lands confiscated during the land wars.
