Resources and comment

"We are strong enough and honest enough to learn the lessons of the last 150 years and to admit that the Treaty of Waitangi has been imperfectly observed." [Queen Elisabeth II, Waitangi, 1990]

"The Maori people have maintained their identity in this land. The peoples coming from Europe, and more recently from Asia, have not come to a desert. They have come to a land already marked by a rich and ancient heritage, and they are called to respect and foster that heritage as a unique and essential element of the identity of this country." [Pope John Paul II, Christchurch, 1986]
