The government has said that you have to come to New Zealand with us!
The man on the left is George and the other man is part of the government. He will be travailing to NZ as well. George was forced to travel to NZ as a servant for Captain Furneaux. George had to leave his family behind.
Hmm NZ it’s doesn’t sound bad...
George and the rest of Captain Furneaux’s crew had to travel a long way, and during travailing they had lots of challenges. It took them just 14 hours to get to Australia.
One of the most hardest challenges was going through the rough storms in the ocean while trying to keep everyone on the ship safe.
When it was night, George was thinking that travailing to NZ wasn’t a bad idea. NZ has only been explored by the Europeans by the time, so that makes NZ quite safe. NZ is also full of wild life that hasn’t been discovered yet. While Africa has lots of bad conditions. So going to NZ isn’t a bad idea.
When the crew arrived they were all super excited to explore this country. As they were arriving they saw two māori people from NZ.
When they got off the ship the Māori greeted them and accepted them into their tiny society. The Māori Queen (the girl that has blonde hair) did not like them and didn’t want to trust them.
