Explore the history of Te Tiriti o Waitangi, New Zealand’s founding document, through storytelling, discussion, and role play.

Discover Aotearoa as it was in 1840, the intentions of those who drafted and signed Te Tiriti, and what the Treaty means to us as modern New Zealanders.

Re-enact this moment in history by taking on the roles of the missionaries, traders, rangatira, and officials who were there.
