Storyboard Text

  • I don't want to sell my land
  • I want to buy your land
  • but I have different rules
  • these are my rules for my land
  • Pakeha veiws on landPakaeah though that the land was only owned by one person and that they could buy it from them (the maori). The land was achly owned by all the maori who had some, and they didn't want to sell it. This automatically led to conflict and war.
  • Maori had certain rules on how the land should be treated and protected for the pakeha. Maori and pakeha don't think of land the same so this was a bit tricky. This was because pakeha wanted to use the land diferently form maori.
