              Pre-1840 the rules of Tikanga could be brutal in respect of inter-tribal wars and their consequences - especially for the ordinary natives who often lived in fear. Happily everyday life for Maoris has been transformed. The practice of tikanga has changed, taking on many aspects o...f Western culture. There are many and varied descriptions of just what tikanga is now. This uncertain tikanga is being re-introduced into our way of life and written into law, setting rules to determine the behaviour not just of part-Maoris but of all New Zealanders. Given these increasing requirements, it is important that the rules of tikanga be clear. What is this tikanga that we must increasingly follow? This book is a scan across the history of the old ways, a description of the changes brought about largely by Maori themselves in their great cultural transformation, and reports of recent disruptive actions where special race-based rights are claimed and supported by calls for the primacy of tikanga. To avoid trouble in the future it is important that this vital issue be known, discussed and debated so that New Zealanders can meet the challenges facing us and seek a better way to move forward as "one people". This book is an informative step in that direction.

              This is probably the most important book published in recent times as it shows how in 27 years the Treaty of Waitangi has been reinterpreted, the "partnership" myth created, tribal corporations set up, public assets transferred to those corporations which are now on the brink of ...securing a special place in a new, treaty based, written constitution. The treaty was Britain's reluctant response to pleas by Maori chiefs to rescue the tribes from a culture of cannibalism, slavery and inter-tribal warfare that had wiped out about a third of their race by 1840. The treaty was a simple and straightforward agreement by which the chiefs agreed to pass the sovereignty of New Zealand to Queen Victoria in return for protection and rights as British subjects as well as being guaranteed possession of whatever lands they were currently holding by long use, conquest or otherwise. By the treaty every Maori, including the slaves, gained a prize unheard of for native people at that time: full and equal citizenship of the world's largest and most benign empire. In recent years a cadre of self-interested politicians, bureaucrats, judges, lawyers, academics, journalists and tribal leaders have been feeding the public a fake history ("wicked colonialists and noble chiefs"), including a false version of the treaty, so as to feed the ever growing grievance industry and line the pockets of corporate iwi, which has amassed $36.9 billion of assets while paying less tax than others or, more often, no tax at all. Claims to culture, radio waves, petroleum and the like, let alone "partnership" with the Crown and even sovereignty itself, are modern creations not mentioned in the treaty. This book, written by six concerned and well-qualified New Zealanders, exposes the extent of the Treaty fraud and warns of the National-Maori Party coalition's plan to hijack our constitution so as to turn all non-Maoris into second class citizens in the land that our forebears built by their sw

              For over 500 years, Polynesians had New Zealand to themselves. However, towards the end of the 1700s, Europeans started arriving to exploit the resources of the country. A technologically advanced culture began interacting with a Stone Age society, and those connections increased... as more and more settlers, mainly British, arrived. This book is about those interactions in the 19th century and the impact of colonisation on Maori. The book examines the early history of Polynesian settlement together with the subsequent European interest, and the signing of the Treaty of Waitangi following the reluctant British decision to take on New Zealand as a country. Throughout, the book relies heavily on accounts of the people who were living through the events of the time.
