It explains the history of New Zealand and the events that happened.
The first settlers came from the Polynesian islands during 1200 and the 1300 AD. They found New Zealand while exploring the Pacific.
The first European that discovered New Zealand was a Dutch man called Abel Tasman on 13 December 1642.
Hone Heke Pokai was a powerful leader. He was known for his prowess as a warrior, but for his enterprise, intelligence and energy in looking for his peoples interests. He was the first to sign the Treaty of Waitangi
1642: Abel anchors his boat at Golden Bay.
It takes it name from the place in the Bay of Islands, where it was first signed on 6 February 1840. The Treaty is a agreement, translated in Maori and English. It was made between the British and the 540 Maori Rangatira.
But Hone Heke destroyed all the British flags as they tried to take over New Zealand.
