Te Tiriti O Waitangi

On Monday Harry Potter, also known as the reading group I'm in, read a book called Te Tiriti O Waitangi. This article is just about all the progress going towards the Treaty being signed and after it was signed. While reading with my group, a certain paragraphed had caught my attention.
Over the years some parts of the Treaty have caused a lot of debate. This debate is about the te reo Maori words used in the Treaty. Did those words really mean the same thing as the words used in the English version of the Treaty?
I'd recommend reading this article for a lot more information on the Treaty and Waitangi.  It had a lot information that I was not expecting to come across. It was really helpful.
