Waitangi Day.


In the 1840's on the 6th of February. 40 Chiefs signed the treaty of Waitangi in the bay of Island. But in a few years over 500 more people signed the treaty.

The banner was getting carried because the maori's want everyone to honour the  tradition. Then in 1970 the protest increased because no one honoured the treaty.

Waitangi mean water tears, wai= water and tangi=tears
