The anniversary of the signing of the Treaty is now a New Zealand public holiday, Waitangi Day, on 6 February. The first Waitangi Day was not until 1947 (although there were some commemorations before that) and the day was not made a public holiday until 1974. The commemoration has often been the focus of protest by M?ori and frequently attracts controversy. The anniversary is officially commemorated at the Treaty house at Waitangi, where the Treaty was first signed.

I spent three hours in NZ, but it was on a tarmac and during the night, so I didn't see anything other than the airport!!! Thanks for the puzzle, monza.

Good morning Mandy ... Never have been too NZ but a few years ago we picked up 3 of the bigger Kubota mowers and took them over to the east coast to be shipped to Shania Twain (country music singer)at the time she in NZ.. I thought it was kind of neat..

Thanks Barb, I've always wanted to visit NZ - my oldest daughter once went and had a fabulous time, for such a tiny country it has huge variety. I'm so happy to hear you're enjoying the series :~)

Beautiful images of a lovely country, Mandy! Always wanted to go to NZ but never got around to it. Thanks also for the story behind this particular holiday. Your Who Knew series is proving to be a good learning experience as well as fun to solve puzzles, thanks! :-)

I had to check out why there was controversy- and this pretty much covers it...
