Europeans Try To Buy Land In Early New Zealand

Europeans came to New Zealand to buy land for the animals because there was no room in England. This Pakeha is trying to give money to the Maori lady because he wants land. But no one person owned the land. It belonged to all of the Tangata Whenua.

Wow Brooke
No wonder there were
argruements between the Maori
people and the European
people.Thats why the Europeans
brought a treaty to the Maori
to sign.The treaty was to make
peace between the Maori and the
Europeans.
