1861 · The Central Otago Gold Rush

Age 0

After discovery of gold in Gabriel's Gully, hundreds of miners and precious metal hunters flocked to New Zealand to be a part of the frenzy. This influx of people caused new settlements to pop up and different innovation techniques to begin. After a few years of steady success, the gold began to be more difficult to find. While some stayed, most of the prospectors left until most of the settlements, which they had founded, became Ghost Towns with only a few residents staying around.  
1863 · New Zealand Settlements Act

Age 2

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.
