From 2022 New Zealand history will be taught in all schools and kura. History lessons are expected to include the arrival of Maori, early colonisation, the Treaty of Waitangi, immigration to New Zealand, and the evolving identity of the country. Dr Aroha Harris says there are many things to consider as the country gets ready for compulsory history in schools.
