The Waitangi Sheet

Description: Documentary heritage submitted by New Zealand and recommended for inclusion in the Memory of the World Register in 1997. The Treaty of Waitangi is the founding document of the nation of New Zealand. It was signed in the Bay of Islands on 6 February 1840 by Captain William Hobson, several English residents and approximately 45 Maori chiefs. The document signed at Waitangi was then taken to a number of other Northland locations to obtain additional Maori signatures.
