            In a small clearing of land nestled within the Wairau valley two peoples met; the recently established settlers of Nelson, and the governing tribe of that region - the renowned Ngati-Toa. When they marched, both sides were prepared for confrontation...yet they weren't expecti...ng that their actions would drastically alter the future of the nation. Shaking both native Maori and settler populations alike, what occurred at Wairau made it clear throughout the Empire that not all was well within Britain's infant colony.
