Saw the slogan above (or very similar to this) on lots of posters pasted up around the Massey public library the other day. I immediately thought it was a promotion to get more adults to use the library, but on closer inspection, it’s a “Treaty of Waitangi” information campaign.
Then in the mail the other day (in the Listener, I think) we get a flyer about the Treaty of Waitangi web site, along with information about a new series of books that you can order for free about it – Called respectively “the Story of the Treaty,” “The Journey of the Treaty,” and “Timeline of the Treaty.” (Others coming later.) It’s part of the $6 million set aside by the State a while back to develop the Treaty of Waitangi Information Programme.
So I’ve surfed over there and ordered some books and had a browse around. I don’t imagine it will meet everybody’s demands as to what is relevant or needs to be included/deleted, but it’s worthwhile going to have a look at.
