More scenes around the hotel

There’s an interesting museum nearby, it’s where the Maoris signed the treaty with the British in 1840 (The Treaty of Waitangi)

Info. about the treaty

A huge Maori longboat (it’s on wheeled trailer-things sitting on tracks that run down to the water–apparently they still use it)

More longboats

This one’s funny

Their longhouses look very similar in style to the Indians of our Northwest
