What's happening at Waitangi.

Waitangi Treaty Grounds has a year-round calendar of cultural performances, public events and displays of the nation’s most important historical treasures.

We regularly welcome new exhibitions to the museum’s temporary gallery so there is always something new to see, even for frequent visitors.

July Events

Professor Deidre Brown (Ngāpuhi, Ngāti Kahu; descendant of Te Pahi) will be speaking about Te Pahi’s medal. The 2014 repatriation of the Te Pahi Medal to Aotearoa New Zealand put pre-Treaty of Waitangi Māori and European relationships into the spotlight at a time when the Waitangi Tribunal had recently found that Ngāpuhi had never ceded their sovereignty under the 1840 Treaty. This talk will examine the legacy of these relationships.
