Treaty of Waitangi Explanation Writting

Why is the Treaty of Waitangi Important?

In the year 1840, the treaty of Waitangi was signed. The treaty of Waitangi is a vital part of New Zealand and its history, and the reason why is because it created peace between the Maori and the English people. When the treaty was signed, it wasn’t very peaceful because the British didn’t keep their promise but the Maori people got what they wanted and there was peace. The treaty gave the Crown the right to govern New Zealand, and all promises were fulfilled. 


The Promises of the treaty 

The treaty has many values that are very important to the Maori people and their culture. If the treaty wasn’t made, there would be no schools teaching Maori and embracing the culture. That is why we have Waitangi day to remember all those people who signed the treaty that promised to protect and let all Maori continue living in New Zealand as Maori, the treaty also gave the Crown the right to govern New Zealand. 


The Maori People’s rights, and why it’s important 

Under Article Three of the Treaty of Waitangi, Māori gained ‘all the Rights and Privileges of British Subjects, when the treaty of Waitangi was signed. It was such a privilege and honor to the Maori people and their culture, to have their right to live in New Zealand. One of the promises from the treaty was that the crown promised to Maori, the benefits of royal protection and full citizenship. This means that the Maori people got to live in New Zealand and live peacefully, throughout their lives. This was a very important occasion for the Maori people because if they couldn’t live in New Zealand there would be nowhere to go, plus none of our schools would know our legacy and the history of New Zealand.

My Inspiration

My Father 


My dad is a father to 6 children including me, he was born on an island in Samoa called savaii and in savaii he lived in a small village in savaii called Taupuelele. My dad is the oldest of his 8 siblings so he has the responsibility of being the leader and role model to me, my siblings, cousin’s and his siblings. My dad is 45 years old and has a family of 8 including me and him (dad). My dad is the bishop of my church and so he has to look after all the members and people in my church. My dad works all day to provide for me and my family. That is why every time he comes home we always have food prepared for him.


My dad is my inspiration because he is very mature and responsible and looks after everyone in every way he can. I got inspired by him ever since he did something really incredible, here is this story on why my dad is my inspiration. 

When I was little about 4 or 5 years old one a Sunday morning me my family and my dad got up early for church when we got there we sat down on our chairs and then I look over to my dad he looked like he was writing something I asked what are you reading then he said he writing a talk for him and I said when are you doing it then he replied and said now I was confused then I looked at his book he had been writing on and it said 2 sentences then I asked him is that your talk and he said not because he hadn’t finished I asked him why and he said he had been very busy with work and family stuff so he couldn’t prepare his talk. Then I heard the bishop asking for my dad to come up now and with no hesitation my dad went up but while he was walking I noticed my dad left his paper on the chair. I rushed to give him it but he said no it was alright. I was confused as to why he said no. I sat down on the front row and listened to him talk. I was surprised that his talk was very beautiful. I looked around and saw everyone crying happy tears. After his talk he came down and sat with me. I asked him if he had memorised his talk and he said he talked from his heart. I hugged my dad tightly, my dad inspired me that day ever since that day I had learned to talk from the heart and walk the path your heart has chosen for you.
