The treaty of Waitangi, which was signed on the six of February 1840, was a treaty with the purpose of allowing British-settlers and Maori alike to live together in New Zealand under set rules and laws.
It was in 1857 that Potatau agreed to be king, and continued to be crowned and anointed at Ngaruawahia in 1858. With his crown in hand many North-Island chiefs laid their land to him.
Te Kooti's war was to be one of the last wars on New-Zealand land. The war was fought in the East-Coast region and the forest filled North Island and Bay Of Plenty. This conflict in particular was sparked to life when Te Kooti returned to New Zealand after two years of internment of the Chatham Islands.
