The Easy Read book about the Treaty of Waitangi

The Easy Read book about the Treaty of Waitangi is an illustrated book in simple language. Each page has many pictures to explain the words.

The book answers many questions like What does the Treaty say? Who signed it? What does the Treaty say for Māori? What does it say for people from other places? What happened after the Treaty? What is a protest? It is appropriate for adults who prefer simple language, for newcomers to Aotearoa New Zealand, for school students and for reading aloud.
