The signatures on the treaty

The Maori’s signatures are funny and touching… They were no able to write and in fact, they were not really aware of what they were signing for.

The newest addition to the Waitangi treaty Grounds is the Museum of Waitangi, opened in February 2016. The Museum aims to enhance the Waitangi Treaty grounds experience by introducing the story of the area and its people through high quality exhibition and learning spaces.
