Summary

Over the course of many years, numerous colleagues, students, friends and relatives in New Zealand, Australia and elsewhere in the Anglophone world have asked me why New Zealand has a historic treaty – the famous Treaty of Waitangi – and Australia does not. I have assumed that what they are really asking is why the British government negotiated with the indigenous people of New Zealand (Māori) for the cession of sovereignty and title to land yet treated Australia’s Aboriginal people as though they were neither sovereign nor the owners of the land. In order to answer this question satisfactorily, I have come to conclude that a particular historical approach is required.
