New Zealand was originally settled by Polynesians from Eastern Polynesia. Genetic and archaeological evidence suggests that humans emigrated from Taiwan to Melanesia and then travelled east through to the Society Islands ; after a pause of 70 to years, a new wave of exploration led to the discovery and settlement of New Zealand.
This was not possible in the south of the South Island, but wild plants such as fernroot were often available and cabbage trees were harvested and cultivated for food.
Warfare also increased in importance, reflecting increased competition for land and other resources. As elsewhere in the Pacific, cannibalism was part of warfare.
Leadership was based on a system of chieftainship, which was often but not always hereditary, although chiefs male or female needed to demonstrate leadership abilities to avoid being superseded by more dynamic individuals.
New Zealand has no native land mammals apart from some rare bats so birds, fish and sea mammals were important sources of protein.
They also cultivated the cabbage treea plant endemic to New Zealand, and exploited wild foods such as fern root, which provided a starchy paste. Early contact periods[ edit ] Early European exploration[ edit ] An early map of Australasia during the Golden Age of Dutch exploration and discovery c.

Cook returned to New Zealand on both of his subsequent voyages. Various claims have been made that New Zealand was reached by other non-Polynesian voyagers before Tasman, but these are not widely accepted.
Early European settlement[ edit ] Further information: Kerikerifounded inand Bluff founded inboth claim to be the oldest European settlements in New Zealand. In some inland areas life went on more or less unchanged, although a European metal tool such as a fish-hook or hand axe might be acquired through trade with other tribes.
Tribes with muskets would attack tribes without them, killing or enslaving many. From to the Musket Wars raged until a new balance of power was achieved after most tribes had acquired muskets. However, these boundaries had no real impact as the New South Wales administration had little interest in New Zealand.
This was acknowledged by King William IV. Busby was provided with neither legal authority nor military support and was thus ineffective in controlling the European population.
Treaty of Waitangi[ edit ] Main article: This and the increased commercial interests of merchants in Sydney and London spurred the British to take stronger action. This was the first clear expression of British intent to annex New Zealand. Copies of the Treaty were subsequently taken around the country to be signed by other chiefs.
What it gave the British in return depends on the language-version of the Treaty that is referred to. Dispute over the true meaning and the intent of either party remains an issue.Frontier Energy is the world's first publication, eNewsletter and website to focus on the oil & gas and shipping operations in the Arctic and other environmentally challenging and harsh, ice-affected regions.
