Treaty of Waitangi graphic novel

From Afternoons, 2:19 pm on 6 August 2018

Last week schools around the country with year 7 and 8 students were treated to a new school journal - a comic book in fact - all about one of our most important historical artefacts, The Treaty of Waitangi.

Te Tiriti o Waitangi tries a fresh approach at helping Kiwi kids understand, and enjoy learning about, the treaty. 

With fun illustrations and simple language, the book covers everything from the signing of the treaty, to the New Zealand Wars, and even the settlement process. 

To tell us more about creating this educational graphic novel, is its illustrator Toby Morris. You can download a pdf of the novel here
