Treaty of Waitangi

LI: To explore the world in 1840 and the art of the Treaty

This week we learned what they would have been like in 1840. Did you know that the Treaty of Waitangi would have been cancelled because of William Hobson being sick. After this we identified some of the key people and their role in the signing of the Treaty of Waitangi. I found it interesting that there was still slavery in America in 1840, it still carried on for another 25 years. We then gathered all our information to help us read the event of the Treaty of Waitangi. Then we looked at the picture seeing what could be happening at that time of the event.

However the image above was an impression of Marcus King , the painter of the picture. It was nearly a hundred years of his impression but it was only 98 years of the impression.

  1. Kia Ora Densyn,
    I have read your blog and I have found it interesting. I enjoyed your DLO about the Treaty of Waitangi. I never knew that the Treaty was almost cancelled becasue of William Hobson. If you had a chance to sign the Treaty would you?
