A group of Maori in the left foreground, being challenged by one man (Marupo) with taiaha. The flags of many nations are strung along the inside of the roof of a marquee, with tables beyond Marupo. Kawiti is signing the Treaty, watched by witness Rev. Richard Taylor and Mr James Stuart Freeman (standing at right of table-end). Beyond this group is another table (both tables are draped in the Union Jack) with Hone Heke (in cap) shaking hands with Governor William Hobson. The seated figure on Hobson's left (i. e. our right) is James Busby.
