In Framing the Frontier - the third in the Tangata Whenua series, students will discover more about what life was like in 19th-century New Zealand. This was the century that shaped our nation. We went from being a country governed by Maori tribes to a nation with an English-based government system. This period of intense change created frictions between Maori and Pakeha, some of which still affect our society today. Framing the Frontier explains why the Treaty of Waitangi was necessary, and will help students understand why the Treaty still stimulates debate. They will learn about the dramatic changes in lifestyle that Maori experienced during this period, many caused by the increasing demand for land caused by the mass immigration of the time. Migrants came to New Zealand expecting an unspoiled Utopia. But did they get the life they were hoping for? As the Victorian era drew to a close new issues arose, including women's suffrage. This book explores how our fledgling government handled these and other issues. And students will discover some of the people who made a difference to how New Zealand developed. Framing the Frontier will give students a deeper understanding of how our people, Maori and Pakeha, with their differing perspectives, cultural values and vision have, over time, created the country that we are so fortunate to live in today.
