Dear Sir
 
Your article (24  April 2024) about Te Papa’s plans to refresh its Treaty of Waitangi exhibition provides little hope that this will do other than support the  current iwi goal of shared sovereignty.
 
That goal is advanced by endless conjecture as to what Maori in  1840 understood the Treaty to mean and by 21st-century reinterpretations of what the text in te reo might now mean  in  English.
 
We are expected to overlook the reality that the dominant party to this 1840 treaty was the British Crown – the world’s leading power at the time.   Its representative, William Hobson,  had instructions from Lord Normanby that no deal was to be entered into unless Maori accepted British Sovereignty,  and there is no need to speculate  on what the Treaty in te reo might mean in English,  for we now have the final English draft that Hobson approved before it was translated into te reo for signing by Maori chiefs.    That final draft, often referred to as the “Littlewood draft” on  account of being preserved in  family archives,  makes it perfectly clear what the British Crown understood it was agreeing to, and it was unthinkable that Britain would involve itself in bringing security, development, democracy and an end to inter-tribal conflict without Maori tribal leaders first agreeing to accept  British sovereignty “forever”.
 
If Te Papa now aims at “providing a fresh view (of the Treaty’s meaning) to inform contemporary conversations”  that clearly implies that Te Papa intends to become involved in the twisting of historical reality in support of iwi demands for ever more power and authority.

As I have said, we must get behind Winston, Jones, Seymour and 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:
