TREATY TRICKERY

WHAT'S GOING ON?

Treaty of Waitangi On the left is a picture of what's left of the Treaty of Waitangi. It's held at Archives New Zealand.

The Littlewood draft is the final English language draft used to create the Treaty of Waitangi in the Maori language.

It is also held at Archives New Zealand, Wellington. But it is not displayed on their web site. Nor can it be located by searching their web site.

• Why is such an important and historically critical document hidden away?

• Why does the Treaty of Waitangi Act 1975 not use the Maori language version of the Treaty of Waitangi? The one that was signed at Waitangi, in 1840.

• Why does the Treaty of Waitangi Act 1975 use a false and wrong English language translation of the Treaty of Waitangi, instead of the real one, signed at Waitangi?

• Why does the racially-biased Waitangi Tribunal not use the native Maori language version of the Treaty of Waitangi? The real one, signed at Waitangi in 1840.

There's something very fishy going on.
