Now, this day is celebrated asa public holiday in New Zealand[ CITATION Ora15 \l 1033 ].The British Queen and Maorissigned the document on that day. It was basically an agreement between the British Crownand about 540 Maori rangatiras (chiefs). The agreement was signed at Waitangi Grounds sothat it is called the Treaty of Waitangi. It framed the political relationship between NewZealand’s Government and the Maoris.In 1830, British migrants were growing randomly in New Zealand. At that time huge landtransactions was witnessed and many French people tried to acquire those lands. Initially, theBritish Government did not show any interest to act on that but later they realized that theyshould give protection to the Maori. It could also secure the commercial interests of thecountry. The Treaty was made when British colonists pressured the Crown to establish acolony in the country[ CITATION Ora151 \l 1033 ]. At that time some Maori chiefs petitionedthe British for the protection against coming French people. As a result, the Treaty wassigned and Queen Victoria's Government gained the sole rightto purchase those lands.According to the Treaty of Waitangi, the British Crown should respect the lands, water andany important invasion of Maori.Currently, the Treaty of Waitangi rules is followed in every business.
