181 years ago, on 10 April 1840, one of the signings of the Treaty of Waitangi took place in Tauranga Moana. The story of Te Tiriti o Waitangi in Tauranga is a fascinating one... Not all of the local chiefs agreed to sign the Treaty; those who didn't wanted to govern themselves, those who did were looking for protection against their enemies.
