The document arrived in Tauranga after many years of violence and bloodshed had decimated the local population. Just days before the Treaty’s arrival, a Tauranga chief was tricked into attending peace talks before being murdered and eaten. Not all the chiefs of Tauranga Moana signed the Treaty; those who didn’t wanted to govern themselves, those who did were looking for protection against their enemies. However, just two years after the signings, three Tauranga Treaty signatories were murdered and eaten in what was one of the last cannibal feasts near Tauranga.

The Treaty of Waitangi in Tauranga: Te Tiriti o Waitangi ki Tauranga Moana Reviews
The Treaty of Waitangi in Tauranga -Te Tiriti o Waitangi ki Tauranga Moana is a thoroughly researched much needed addition to local and national knowledge about the Treaty of Waitangi. Indeed, there would not be many New Zealanders who could even say that they know the information regarding the signing of the Treaty by chiefs of the Tauranga Moana, much less the conflict and drama surrounding it. From a teaching point of view, the book written in both Maori and English can be used on so many levels. There is the actual story of the signing, a story of injustice, murder, conflict, cannibalism and the eventual settlement and honouring of the treaty written in an exciting and easily readable style for younger students while the supporting documents and images are perfect for older students. It is hard to imagine any school or teacher who would not find this an essential teaching resource.The clever layout and design work by award winning designer Sarah Elworthy, portrays information in a wide range of styles including: maps, journal entries, timelines, lists of the treaty signatories and historical photos balanced alongside the actual story which is illustrated with clever sketches by Whare Thompson. The book is visually exciting and packed with information.Debbie McCauley’s portrayal of historical events in both The Treaty of Waitangi in Tauranga -Te Tiriti o Waitangi ki Tauranga Moana and Taratoa and the code of conduct: A story from the battle of Gate Pa (2014) have changed the way I select historical stories for my students. With her prolific writing, depth of research and her ability to capture historical times and events, Debbie McCauley’s books are once again making the learning of history an exciting and stimulating way to delve into our New Zealand history.
