NZResearch.org.nz Ti Titirti O Waitangi - Interactive site Within 44 years, 18 million acres of New Zealand land passed from the purview of one group of people into the hands of scores of others. Some of the new owners were not in the country yet. Eighteen million acres represents more than a quarter of the entire land mass of New Zealand. Or about 67 Aucklands. Ngāti Whātua Ōrākei transferred the future Auckland city to the Crown for the equivalent of about $70,000 in today’s currency. At the top of the South Island, no one asked Ngāti Apa before the Crown bought the entire area. New Zealand’s current housing crisis demonstrates what can go wrong for people without a place to call home. The land alienation that happened at the beginning of this country’s modern existence was much, much worse. For instance, Nelson’s Ngāti Kuia was pressured to give up its land. The confronting truth of what happened in our recent past is something New Zealanders have to reckon with. On this page, you can connect the two. notes

Oral History | New Zealand Oral History Site Ministry for Culture and Heritage White ribbon-magazine of the New Zealand Women’s Christian Temperance Movement White Ribbon: for God, Home, and Humanity was the magazine of the New Zealand Women’s Christian Temperance Movement (NZWCTU). The NZWCTU started in 1885, following the American movement that began in the United States in late 1873 and 1874. Alcohol was seen to be the cause of a number of social problems, such as poverty and violence, which impacted particularly on women. Leavitt travelled throughout the country giving public lectures. However, the WCTU’s remit, both overseas and in New Zealand, was wider than just temperance. It became obvious that the WCTU and women in general would have more ability to change society if they were able to vote. One of the ways Sheppard promoted her message about suffrage was through the page she contributed to the Prohibitionist, published by the Sydenham Prohibition League, from 1891. The first issue of White Ribbon came out in May 1895. Māori women also joined the NZWCTU, concerned about the impact of alcohol on their communities.
