Unrestrained Slaughter; The Maori Musket Wars 1800-1840 By John Robinson
This is a brief account for the general reader of the deadliest and most gruesome chapter in New Zealand’s history - the Musket Wars in which around one third of the Maori population were killed. The wars were a continuation of the inter-tribal fighting that had been a feature of native life ever since the tribes arrived in New Zealand in their canoes but the introduction of muskets increased the killing to an industrial scale.Read more
Hone Heke's War By John Robinson.
Hone Heke is best known for his cutting down the British flag at Kororareka. He had first stepped on to the national stage a few years earlier with a theatrical, grandstanding performance at Waitangi when he pushed ahead of more senior chiefs to be the first to sign the Treaty.Read more

The Government’s occupation of Parihaka on 5th November, 1881, was an inevitable and necessary consequence of Te Whiti creating a quasi-republic in the bush of southern Taranaki, which refused to recognise the sovereignty of the Crown or the laws of the land, and was a haven for criminals on the run from justice, including a murderer.Read more
To "All New Zealanders - Are we being conned?" is an excellent 36 page e-booklet which details the myths which prop up the Treaty industry and lists the many laws granting special treatment for Maori which can be downloaded here for free.
Please consider the list of 24 common myths of the Treaty industry, and ask yourself why a growing number of New Zealanders are upset with this wealth and power grab by the newly created tribal elite.
Let us have one nation and not separatism or tribalism.
Free speech under attack explains the struggle for free-speech in England over several centuries and how it was an established by the time British law came to New Zealand in 1840. In the 21st century, new forces have arisen to try to limit free speech on the grounds that certain statements might offend minorities. In fact, offending people is one of the by-products of free speech and is no argument for restricting it. The current moves to limit free speech on such spurious grounds as "religious hate speech" laws are the work of power elites whose eventual aim is to limit, if not altogether abolish, the right to criticise powerful minorities, and indeed, authority itself.Read more

Pre-1840 the rules of tikanga could be brutal in respect of inter-tribal wars and their consequences - especially for the ordinary natives who often lived in fear. Happily everyday life for Maoris has been transformed. The practice of tikanga has changed, taking on many aspects of Western culture. There are many and varied descriptions of just what tikanga is now. This uncertain tikanga is being re-introduced into our way of life and written into law, setting rules to determine the behaviour not just of part-Maoris but of all New Zealanders.Read more
The arrival of British rule in New Zealand in the wake of the Treaty of Waitangi in 1840 did not immediately spread throughout the country as qualified manpower was scarce. Some Maori in the Waikato were dissatisfied that lawlessness still prevailed in the back areas and so the idea of having their own "king" and government was floated. Not all Maori - not even in the Waikato - accepted the idea.Read more

In this book Andy Oakley, the author of "Cannons Creek to Waitangi", exposes the fraud of the New Zealand government in the 21st century continuing to transfer wealth, rights and public resources from the general public into the hands of a small tribal elite composed of people who have more European blood in them than Maori. Some of them are more than 96% European and yet they continue to receive race based privileges and special funding not available to others. Having grown up in the low income suburb of Cannons Creek, near Wellington, the author has strong views about this continuing enrichment of a small elite on a purely racial basis while those in real need - both Maori and European - are missing out.Read more

One Treaty, one nation - the book every New Zealander should read. 175 years ago our forebears brought forth a new nation, conceived in trust and dedicated to the proposition that all New Zealanders would be one people, living under the same law. But for the last 40 years we have been under relentless pressure to divide the country into two groups - iwi and the rest of us.
Back in 1975 Waitangi Day and the Treaty of Waitangi Act were set up to foster a sense of nationhood and a greater awareness of the Treaty as a symbol that embraces us all. What we got instead was years of protest and vitriol while billions of dollars have been taken from everyone and handed over to private tribal trusts.Read more

This brief and concisely written guide book to Treaty issues should be read by anyone who wants to understand this important subject. Besides explaining the current treaty settlement process the book also looks at the circumstances surrounding the signing of the treaty and the later rebellion by certain tribes which led to the warfare of the 1860s.Read more
This is probably the most important book published in recent times as it shows how in 27 years the Treaty of Waitangi has been reinterpreted, the "partnership" myth created, tribal corporations set up, public assets transferred to those corporations which are now on the brink of securing a special place in a new, treaty based, written constitution.Read more

In this book Andy Oakley, who was brought up in the Wellington suburb of Cannons Creek, questions the logic of giving ever greater taxpayer handouts on a racial basis to an already wealthy tribal elite instead of making these "Treaty billions"available to all New Zealanders on the basis of need.
He exposes the Waitangi Tribunal as a racist fraud and shows that, at the time of signing the Treaty of Waitangi in 1840, there was no such thing as a "Maori race"- only various nations/tribes that were constantly at war with each other.Read more
