A Manatū Taonga audio guide to Waitangi. Check out the Ministry for Culture and Heritage's audio guide in the image carousel above.

The Treaty of Waitangi, considered to be New Zealand’s founding document, was signed at Waitangi on 6 February 1840 between Māori chiefs and the British Crown. However, within five years Māori were at war with the British over land loss and treaty infringements. Since the 1970s the Waitangi Tribunal has investigated treaty breaches.
