The Commonwealth Games in Auckland was the major event of New Zealand's sesquicentennial (150th anniversary). The opening ceremony provided a setting for an imaginative presentation of New Zealand identity, and it featured waves of different groups migrating to New Zealand – Māori, Europeans, and then Asian and Pacific peoples. This image shows a representation of the arrival of British explorer James Cook in the Endeavour in 1769.
