The British arrived in  NZ. At that time Maori were living there and with chiefs there were about 200,000 Maori of them. After that the British stayed there for a while because they wanted to start a new life in NZ.

So they made a treaty between the Maori and the British. It was a contract that they would share land and have peace. A couple of days it was written Maori and English  gathered at Waitangi bay of island people and chiefs getting ready to sign the treaty.

On the 6th of February 1840 the treaty was signed.The treaty agreement or contact was to make peace between Maori and English and Europeans as well wanting land.
