Waitangi Day

A national public holiday in New Zealand, February 6 commemorates the signing of the 1840 Treaty of Waitangi, in which the Maori natives agreed to coexist peacefully with the European settlers. It was not observed as a public holiday outside the North Island until it became New Zealand Day in 1973. It was observed as such until 1976, when it again became known as Waitangi Day. Waitangi is located on the Bay of Islands at the northern end of the North Island, and the day on which the treaty was signed is observed there by the Royal New Zealand Navy and the Maoris each year.

The Treaty of Waitangi may be deemed as the beginning of the intercultural-justice in Aotearoa New Zealand. Before, Tikanga Māori ruled predominantly. Tikanga Māori may be described as 'Māori law and custom'. That was the Māori way of doing things.

The surname of Jeremy Waldron has been cited as an author of a proposal that the international law doctrine of rebus sic stantibus could be used as a starting point for "reflection and reconsideration" on the possibility of the Treaty of Waitangi's obsolescence due to changes in circumstances. Regrettably I could not find the work entitled as "FW Guest Memorial Lacture 2005: The Half-Life of Treaties: Waitangi, Rebus Sic Stantibus" ascribed to Jeremy Waldron.

For these of you interested, there is, for example, Māmari Stephens "Māori Law and Hart: A Brief Analysis" (2001) 32 VUWLR 853. This one exists, that is for sure.

"Jeremy spoken, spoken..." What a jam was that? Pearl.
