Why I think it is important to learn about the Treaty of Waitangi. As we all live in N.Z and we are a part of N.Z. So learning about the Treaty of Waitangi helps us understand the history of the country we live in. How this country got available to everyone. We also need to learn how Maori rights were abused and it is important to learn how there has been and still needs much more restoration. We also need to learn how Maori are the indigineous people of N.Z and N.Z is their homeland.
