    Other articles where History of South Africa is discussed: South Africa: History: The prehistory and history of South Africa span nearly the entire known existence of human beings and their ancestors—some three million years or more—and include the wandering of small bands of hominins through the savanna, the inception of herding and farming as ways of. Despite the heaving bosom and swarthy men on the cover, this book is less about romance and more about the struggles of homesteading a new land. It was an interesting glimpse into the early settlement of Australia -- the hard lives of the convicts banished there, the corruption of the English soldiers, the all but abandonment of the colony by 4/5(44).

      The only reason this book gets 4 stars instead of 5 is my initial disappointment when I realised that this is NOT Fosters more normal SciFi, but instead an account of the settlement of New Zealand, based around the fictional life of Robert Coffin. If you are still interested, read it - it blends fast paced action with historical fact very s: 1/2 🌟 Though I do question the authenticity of the level of tolerance for diversity portrayed during this period in history, I admit very little knowledge of New Zealand history. Perhaps, New Zealand was more progressive than the rest of the English speaking world. I thoroughly enjoyed both this story and the 1st book in the series/5().

    Another name, the Colonial New Zealand Wars is also used, especially by Tim Ryan and Bill Parham in the title of their well illustrated book. Some historians have since suggested the New Zealand Civil Wars. This name suggests that the wars were a civil war (much in the American sense) fought between Māori and new European settlers/the Crown.   Official disinterest in pre-Maori New Zealand history stunned Australian-based researchers Peter Marsh and Gabi Plumm in Part 1 of their new documentary series titled Skeletons in the Cupboard. Episode 1 The Redheads assembles evidence that Aryans from India migrated to the islands of the Pacific, including New Zealand. The idea is not new.

Get this from a library. Land problems of the New Zealand settlers of the 'forties. [E Wilson Wilson]. The New Zealand Wars were a series of armed conflicts that took place in New Zealand from to between the Colonial government and allied Māori on one side and Māori and Māori-allied settlers on the other.

They were previously commonly referred to as the Land Wars or the Māori Wars while Māori language names for the conflicts included Ngā pakanga o Aotearoa ("the great New Result: Loss of Māori land, retreat of Kingitanga.

Because the Maori were the original land holders in New Zealand, the earliest land transactions were those between the Maori and early European settlers. Transactions made prior to were private and few records were kept. The New Zealand Company was the initial body to purchase land following settlement.

New World countries such as Australia and New Zealand followed that trend. One reason for the rural exodus was mechanisation, which meant fewer jobs were available on the land. But social and human factors provided another powerful reason: settlers had hopes of a rural arcadia, but when they got here many found the New Zealand countryside harsh.

The most obvious cause of the New Zealand Wars was land — “Māori had it, and the British wanted it”. But it wasn’t that simple, as Vincent O’Malley explains in this extract from his latest book, The New Zealand Wars/ Ngā Pakanga o Aotearoa.

If we ask what the cause of the New Zealand Wars was, then we are probably starting off in the wrong direction. Claims and settlements under the Treaty of Waitangi have been a significant feature of New Zealand race relations and politics since the Treaty of Waitangi Act Successive governments have increasingly provided formal legal and political opportunity for Māori to seek redress for breaches by the Crown of the guarantees set out in the Treaty of Waitangi.

Dating the earliest human settlement of New Zealand remains a matter of debate. It is now generally accepted that the first arrivals from more northern South Pacific islands occurred around years ago, with the Moriori settling their new land around years ago.

Polynesian culture, the beliefs and practices of the indigenous peoples of the ethnogeographic group of Pacific Islands known as Polynesia, which encompasses a huge triangular area of the east-central Pacific Ocean. In the early s, about 70 percent of the total population of Polynesia resided in Hawaii.

Sealing The first major sealing operation in New Zealand was in Dusky Sound, Novemberin which men were dropped off from the ship Britannia.

The history of New Zealand dates back approximately years to when it was discovered and settled by Polynesians, who developed a distinct Māori other Pacific cultures, Māori society was centred on kinship links and connection with the land but, unlike them, it was adapted to a cool, temperate environment rather than a warm, tropical one.

The military history of New Zealand is an aspect of the history of New Zealand that spans several hundred years. When first settled by Māori almost a millennium ago, there was much land and resources, but war began to break out as the country's carrying capacity was approached. Initially being fought with close range weapons of wood and stone, this continued on and off until.

The first European to sight New Zealand was Dutch explorer Abel Tasman. He was on an expedition to discover a great Southern continent ‘Great South Land’ that was believed to be rich in minerals.

Inwhile searching for this continent, Tasman sighted a ‘large high-lying land’ off the West Coast of the South Island. Further south, 22 Europeans and four Māori had been killed o n 17 Junewhen an armed party of New Zealand Company settlers clashed with Ngāti Toa over the ownership of land in the Wairau Valley near today's town of Blenheim.

The new governor, Robert FitzRoy, maintained that the Māori had been provoked by the unreasonable actions of the Europeans and took no. Abel Tasman, a Dutch explorer, was one of the first Europeans to discover New Zealand on the 13th of Decemberin his search for the Great Southern Continent.

Tasman noted in his journal that it was a large land, uplifted high (the area he sighted was near the Southern Alps). The act also allowed Māori to deal directly with settlers over land.

Because this contravened the Treaty, the act had to be approved in London. It was barely implemented before it was replaced in New Zealand Settlements Act. The New Zealand Settlements Act, passed during the New Zealand Wars, authorised the taking of land from Māori.

The Māori (/ ˈ m aʊ r i /; Māori pronunciation: [ˈmaːɔɾi] ()) are the indigenous Polynesian people of mainland New Zealand.Māori originated with settlers from eastern Polynesia, who arrived in New Zealand in several waves of waka (canoe) voyages between roughly and Over several centuries in isolation, these settlers developed their own distinctive culture, whose.

With civil war in the United States closing off that Utopia to Britain’s land-hungry sons, attention focused on the raw countries of Australia and New Zealand. Two other New Zealand religious settlements, one in Otago established by the Scottish Free Church, the other in Canterbury set up by the Anglicans, had been notably successful.
