Te Tiriti o Waitangi - The Treaty of Waitangi with Susan Healy.


Email: info@mercyspiritualitycentre.org.nz to register.

On 6th February 1840, Māori chiefs and Captain William Hobson, representing the British Crown, signed Te Tiriti of Waitangi, the Treaty of Waitangi, Aotearoa New Zealand’s founding document. Hobson relied on the advice and support of a number of missionaries working in New Zealand.
Henry Williams, the leader of the Church Missionary Society mission in New Zealand and his son Edward translated the English draft into Māori. We also know that the Roman Catholic Bishop Pompallier was present for the Treaty discussions at Waitangi, and initiated the orally agreed fourth article on religious freedom.

How do later words and actions of Henry Williams and Bishop Pompallier help us understand the original intentions of the treaty? What lies at the heart of the Treaty relationship? In this session, Susan will speak into the above questions and lead the discussion on them.

Susan Healy has been involved in Treaty research and education for many years. She was part of an independent panel that heard the evidence on the Declaration of Independence and Te Tiriti o Waitangi, given at the Waitangi Tribunal’s hearing of the Ngapuhi Nui Tonu claim in 2010–2011.
