Analysis: 'Treaty of Waitangi' Comic For High School Students Has Been Quietly Brainwashing Away Since 2018 (Part 12)

Above and on the left is page four of the comic we have been analysing.

HERE is the whole comic.

If you want to know why we are analysing this comic, just refer to blogs for the last few days.

In short, the comic was released into schools in 2018  to brainwash our children.

What is its purpose?

Maori Activists inside the Labour government, particularly the Maori caucus, supported by the Greens and Te Pati Maori, are grooming our children so that when our children leave school and become old enough to vote, they will vote for all things Maori.

In this way, so the plan goes, Maori will be able to legitimately and legally take over the country.  That is to say, they are grooming our children to vote for a Maori takeover.

What’s happening here is exactly what happened in Germany in the 1920s and 30s, preparing the ground for Nazi rule. In the case of New Zealand, it’s tribal rule.

So what is there to say about page four?


There are two pictures we want to talk about in today’s blog.

The first picture conveys the idea that many people in Britain (and other parts of the world) were wanting to come to New Zealand to start a new life.  This was / is entirely true.

The non-Maori population of New Zealand at 1840 was said to be around 2000.

The second picture is designed to elicit in readers a feeling of disgust.  Why? How?  The text says “A company in London made plans to buy land in New Zealand to sell to settlers for a profit.  This forced the British government to take further action.”

The thought the authors want the student readers to ‘get’ is that it was disgusting to make a profit out of land bought from Maori.  So let’s unpack this.

This is a reference to the New Zealand Company, run and owned by one Edward Gibbon Wakefield.

He and his company were the main players when it came to buying land off Maori prior to the Treaty in 1840.

The truth of the matter?

Prior to 1840 settlers were arriving in New Zealand.

Obviously, they needed land to live on and make a living. Hence,  they bought land directly from Maori.

 HERE is a list of pre-1840 land sales.

This record / list is a hugely important document.  Why? It proves that Maori were busy selling land.  In fact, they couldn’t sell it fast enough.

We have people in our team who are busy putting together reliable data about pre-1840 land sales.  If one adds up all the sales in the list above provided by H.H Turton, taking into account duplicates, and any unclear citations, the total comes to about 20 million acres, or 1/3 of the total land area of New Zealand (i.e. New Zealand is 66 million acres).

In other words, before the Treaty was signed, Maori had sold at the very least 1/3 of New Zealand to settlers.   If one combines this 1/3 with what was sold after the Treaty was signed in 1840, Maori ended up selling 92% of their land.   HERE is the proof.

This puts to bed the modern day narrative advertised widely by Maori activists that Maori had all their land ‘stolen’ or ‘confiscated’.  It is simply not true.

Maori loved European goods, and what money could buy, particularly guns and gun powder. For Maori chiefs, guns were status symbols.  They could not get enough of them.

But it was not just guns they could not get enough of.  It was anything the Europeans had – pots, pans, hoes, rakes, buckets, horses, cows, sheep, blankets, clothes etc. The list was endless.

If Europeans had it, Maori wanted it.  And the way to get these things?  Sell land in exchange for cash or cash and goods.

This puts to the sword the current bleating of Maori activists that “Maori in 1840 would never sell their land. It was sacred to them.”

This has proved to be complete nonsense, a modern day fabrication of early New Zealand history.  It’s a gross distortion of the facts.

As for ‘making a profit’? How should we respond?

First, the Moriori were here in New Zealand before Maori.  Maori not only took the land off Moriori without paying a cent to them for it but they also murdered Moriori in the process.

Second, Wakefield did buy land from Maori and sold it to settlers for a profit.  And what is wrong with this? Answer?  Nothing.

It’s called business, and Maori loved business too.  By 1840 they were busy trading flax, timber, potatoes and other goods, all for good profits.  It’s worth noting that once they knew the value of land, they were not slow to hike up the prices.

Historian Michael Wright argues ” [Maori] Contact [with Europeans]  had become a
mark of status for Maori, a door to prosperity, new ideas and new goods. Chiefs vied to have a mission under their own jurisdiction, and when Hongi took control of the second station at Kerikeri in 1819, war almost followed.” (Michael Wright. Illustrated History Of New Zealand. Bateman Press. 2013. p.39)

In other words, Maori valued trade with Europeans so much that they would go to war with each other to get it.  

So much for the modern day activist narrative that colonialism was evil and wrong. The contrary is true. Maori in history could not get enough of what ‘colonialism’ offered.

OK, back to the land issue.

Maori got the land for free from Moriori and sold it to Wakefield for pure profit.

Not bad going I would say.

But the comic wants its student age readers to get the idea that Wakefield buying land off Maori and selling it for a profit was a terrible crime.

Where is the picture in the comic of Maori murdering Moriori (genocide) and taking their land for free?  Then selling it for huge profits?

Conveniently, it’s not there.

Concluding question.  Who really committed the crime? Wakefield buying land from Maori at agreed prices and selling it for a profit to settlers or Maori murdering Moriori and taking all their land without pay for it (i.e. all of New Zealand) and selling it to Wakefield?

You know the answer.


This comic is a key component of Maori activists to take over the country.  It targets children.

In my book TAKEOVER: 18 STRATEGIES MAORI ACTIVISTS ARE USING TO TAKE OVER NEW ZEALAND  I detail all the strategies activists are using.

You can read this book HERE.

In tomorrow’s blog, I will continue the analysis.

See you then!


As I have said, we must get behind Winston, Jones and Seymour, Luxon, emailing them regularly with encouragement and our full support to expunge co-governance and Maorification from New Zealand.

Leaders need encouragement constantly.

Email Luxon urging him to do what the people of New Zealand elected him to do, which was to rid the country of Maorification and co-governance.

Warn him that he will be a one term PM if he doesn’t.

Here are their email addresses:
