1. Maori Pakeha relations in the 19th Century
Meet remarkable figures like Hone Heke; famed flag pole destroyer, General Duncan Cameron; British soldier who led his troops to defeat in the Waikato, George Grey; Governor of New Zealand, who swung between favouring Maori and attempting to take away their land, as well as missionaries, sealers, whalers and traders who lived in the bawdy, bustling brothel town of Kororareka, the first capital of New Zealand. Why did Britain decide to annex New Zealand? Why was the Treaty of Waitangi signed? Why did the New Zealand wars break out?
