On the 29th of January 1840, Lieutenant Governor William Hobson arrived in New Zealand.
James Busby helped draft up the Treaty, and on the evening of Tuesday, February 4th, the missionary Henry Williams and his son translated the English text into Maori.
The following morning on Wednesday, February 5th, over 400 Maori attended a meeting in front of Busby’s house at Waitangi.
Busby believed that without this promise, the chiefs would not support the Treaty.
will the chiefs even support the treaty?
On the advice of Henry Williams the chiefs decided to sign the Treaty the following day.
Over the next seven months, missionaries and officials carried the Treaty around the country and more than 500 chiefs signed the Treaty of Waitangi at approximately 50 meeting places.
Sign the treaty!
