Story: Treaty of Waitangi

Treaty protest posters: ‘What is there to celebrate?’ (2nd of 2)

This 1980s poster, in the form of a cartoon strip, portrays Māori as disadvantaged through the education system, in employment opportunities, the courts, health services and other areas of society. It is one of many publications from the vigorous Māori self-determination movement, which was also supported by Pākehā anti-racism activists.
