This story goes back to the earliest visitors to Aotearoa. How Waitangi Day came to be such a significant date on the New Zealand calendar is equally interesting and full of little-known details.
Between 1840 and today, February the 6th has been a day that was sometimes overlooked and ignored, and sometimes a focus for stormy protest, debate and discussion. In Waitangi Day: The New Zealand Story, you will discover:
- What has happened since 1840
- How Waitangi Day is celebrated today
- Historic places to visit at Waitangi and around the Bay of Islands
Richly illustrated with illustrations and photographs from the past to the present, this is a fascinating account of an important place, and a very special day.
