Storyboard Text

  • It was Hobson's job to decide on the wording of the Treaty that had been instructed to make with the Maori chiefs of New Zealand. 
  • James Busby helped draft up the Treaty, and on the evening of Tuesday,  February 5th, 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. They listened to the Treaty being read in English by Hobson, and in the Maori By Henry Williams. 
  • There was also the important clause that Busby had inserted the guaranteed Maori possession of their lands, forests, fisheries and other prized possessions. 
  • Busby believed that without this promise, the chiefs would not support the treaty.
  • On the advice of Henry Williams the chiefs decided to sign the Treaty the following day.
