1863 · New Zealand Settlements Act

Age 1

The New Zealand Settlements Act was passed to be able to seize any of the land from the Maori tribes who had been in rebellion against the Government since the beginning of the year. This confiscation law targeted Kingitanga Maori mainly because they were whom the government had waged war against in the attempt to restore British Law to the tribes.

Age 2

The Invasion of the Waikato was the most important campaign during the 19th century Wars in New Zealand. It was fought in the North Island between the Kingitanga Movement, a group of Maori Tribes, and the colonial government. The hostility lasted for nine months, where 14,000 Imperial and colonial troops and 4,000 Māori warriors fought and was the costliest confrontation during the New Zealand Wars. In 1995, the government conceded that the 1863 invasion and confiscation was wrongful and apologized for its actions and later that year Queen Elizabeth II personally signed the Waikato Raupatu Claims Settlement Act.
