Scott, Thomas, 1947- :Great moments in New Zealand history no 1. Well done Hobson. With a bit of luck we'll never hear about fishing rights or land claims ever again. 28 September 1988

Reference Number: H-733-117

A scene at the conclusion of the signing of the Treaty of Waitangi. A group of Maori are walking away in one direction while a group of Pakeha are heading in the opposite direction, away from a table draped with the Union Jack. One Pakeha man in suit and top hat is telling Governor William Hobson that any future claims about Maori land and fishing rights are unlikely. The cartoon was published at a period when the Waitangi Tribunal was settling many claims from iwi.
