Age 42

"Dutch explorer Abel Tasman discovers part of the western littoral of New Zealand and names his discovery ""Staten Landt""."
1642 · The First Meeting (Golden Bay)

Age 42

"In 1642, a Dutch explorer named Abel Janszoon Tasman sailed into Mohua, known as the Golden Bay. Initially, the local Māori people had warned the mysterious visitors by blowing at them with shell instruments. Tasman's crew misunderstood the gesture and responded by playing tunes back with their own instruments, inadvertently inciting a challenge. Due to this event and other cultural misunderstandings, a brief period of violence began. After several small battles and an escape attempt, Tasman's crew finally managed to leave the region. In his frustration, Tasman would rename the location ""Murderers Bay"", and Europeans would not return to the location for more than 120 years."
