Tha Boyd Incident

video

Kia Ora readers. This movie above is going to explain why we had to have a treaty. The main reason is because they had wars and arguments. This movie is another peace of New Zealand History. It is showing what happened after one of Captain James Cook's crew mates, mistreated one of the Maori chiefs. When the first boat of settlers, arrived on the boat called "The Boyd", the members of the tribe killed the people on that boat and destroyed it. This stood out to me that this was a DEFINITE incident. Watch and learn.

It sure would have been difficult to keep everyone safe and happy without common laws, and people to enforce them in early New Zealand.
