"Ka tohea e au mai i tēnei pepa whai mana (1835 Whakaputanga o te Rangatiratanga) e āta whakaaetia ana a Niu Tireni e tēnei Whenua, he whenua motuhake me tōna tino rangatiratanga. Nō reira ko ngā Ture o te Kāwanatanga me te Whare Ture o (Peretānia Nui Tonu), e takahi ana i taua rangatiratanga, ehara i te kaupapa hei whakaūtanga mā te Kāwanatanga o Piritone."

Te Hekeretari o INGARANGI MŌ NGĀ Koroni

"Kua kōrero kē au, ko te [Kāwanatanga o Ingarangi] e whakaae ana he whenua motuhake, he whenua tū rangatira a Niu Tireni, otirā e whakaae ana kia whai wāhi ai ōna iwi tini e noho marara ana. Engari ko te whakaaetanga ki ō rātou tika, e whakamau atu ana ki te pono o te Karauna o Ingarangi. Ko te Kuini, kāore e tango mōna me āna pononga, ngā moutere o Niu Tireni, te whakahaere tikanga rānei ki runga i a rātou hei tominiana mō Peretania Nui Tonu, kia mātua whakaae rawa te tangata whenua i runga i te ngākau mārama, i runga i te mōhio."

ki ngĀ Rangatira i Waitangi

"Ko Wikitōria Kuini o Peretania Nui Tonu rāua ko Airana, e hiahia ana kia atawhaitia ngā rangatira me ngā tāngata o Niu Tireni me te oranga hoki o āna pononga e noho tahi ana me koutou. Nāna ahau i tono ki tēnei wāhi hei Kāwana, engari kāore he take o ngā ture o Ingarangi, kāore hoki ōna mana i waho o ōna tominiana ki te kore koutou e whakaae [ki te Tiriti] kia whakaritea hei atawhai i a koutou.

Kua tohungia ahau e Tōna Tapairu Whakahirahira kia whakamārama i ēnei take kia mārama ai koutou.

E hia hoki ō koutou tononga ki te Kīngi o Ingarangi mō tōna korowai hei tāwharau i a koutou. Kua tukuna atu e Tōna Tapairu Whakahirahira taua tāwharau i roto i te Tiriti nei."

"Koia tēnei taku kōrero. Ko taku hiahia kia kotahi anō ō tātou whakaaro. ... Ko au kei tō koutou upoko. Ko taku hiahia kia whai Kāwana anō koutou katoa. Ka ora tātou i tēnei āhua.

KI Te RŌpŪ Hanga Ture o New South Wales

“I whakaritea te whakaputanga o te rangatiratanga i ngā iwi ruarua noa nei o te Pēwhairangi, kāore hoki i tae ki ngā mea e noho ana i Hauraki, ki te tonga. Kua kōrerohia e Te Pūhipi ki a koutou nāna tonu tēnei kaupapa i hanga i runga anō i tōna ake mana, kāore i runga i te mana o te hēkeretari, te Kāwana rānei o te koroni, ko ia nei tōna rangatira; he mea whakataruna nāna ki a Te Tieri; otirā kāore e taea te taruna kei te mārama ngā tāngata whenua ki tōna ia; hoi ahakoa te mimiti kua emi tonu rātou ki te whakaputa i ngā ture, inā hoki i ārahihia e Te Pūhipi i roto i tana whakapuakanga kia pēra ai; otirā e whākina ana ngā rangatira, rātou mā ngā mea i haina i te whakaputanga o te mana motuhake ki te mana o te Kuini. E whai ake ana tēnei kia whakahokia ngā mea katoa ki te whenua whai mana mēnā rā kāore te whakaputanga o te mana motuhake i hangaia. Ko te tino ariā o tēnei mahi kia kitea ai he huarahi hei whakawhitiwhiti whakaaro i waenganui i ngā rangatira e tika ana o Te Ika a Māui, hāunga Te Puku o te Ika me Te Waipounamu, ērā whenua kua raupatutia i raro i ngā tikanga o te take taunaha, kāore hoki i whakawhiti whakaaro; ka mutu, mēnā ko te whakaputanga o te mana motuhake i ngā mea o Niu Tireni i hoatungia te mana ki a tauiwi hei tahi atu i ō rātou whenua i tarunga te hoko, ā kāti, ko ngā tāngata nā rātou te whakaputanga o te mana motuhake i hanga te taua nanakia katoa e kitea e ngā tangata o Niu Tireni. He pai ake mō te hunga o Niu Tireni me te mana o Ingarangi mēnā ka whāngaia ia ki te hāngi pērā i te poaka, kātahi ka kainga tonutia, hoi kei te tū mataara tonu a ia, ānō nei kua tāuwhihia ōna mahi nanakia ki te wai. Ko taku whakapae he mea rorirori te whakaputanga o te mana motuhake nāna nei i hanga i raro i te kore mana ka mutu he kariri pepa i pūhia ki a Te Tieri.”

"I te 23 [o Hune] ka punga te Herald, te kaipuke o te Kuini, ki Te Matau a Māui. I tau ahau ki te rapu i te rangatira nei a Te Hāpuku. Hāwhe hāora ahau e hoe ana, e hīkoi ana kātahi anō au ka tae ki te pā, engari kua haere kē te rangatira ki roto i te tuawhenua, ā, i tonoa tētahi ki te tiki i a ia. I te tīmatanga, kāore a Te Hapuku i haina i te Tiriti. E kī ana a ia he tangata kora a ia me tana kī i rongo a ia i meinga ngā mea i haina i te Tiriti hei taurekareka. Nā, ka tonoa e au a Te Wiremu kia haere ki te pātai i te rangatira, a Hara, tētahi o ngā rangatira i haina i te Tiriti he aha ia i kore ai e meinga hei taurekareka, ka mutu e hia ngā taurekareka i kite ia i te Pēwhairangi.”

ki a Rore Russell

“Kua whakawāngia e au engari, ko te mea nui kia whakawhāiti ngā mea tauiwi o Pōneke ki tētahi whenua rōnaki kia kore ai e marara i te whānuitanga o te rohe… ki te haere tonu te kamupene, e tika ana kia whāiti tō rātou mana hoko ki ngā rohe kua tohungia e te Kāwanatanga. Ko te whakaritenga o ngā tāone he mea mā te Kāwana e whakatau. Ki te kore ēnei tikanga e mana ka ara ki konei ki Niu Tireni ngā mahi heahea i mahia i Poihākena… Ahakoa i roto i te koroni hou, ki te wāwāhia te whenua ki ngā wāhanga e ōrite ana te nui, engari kāore i ōrite te wāriu, ā, ki te hokona pēnei i te rotari, ko te āhua nei he momo toropere moni tēnei, me taku whakapae kāore pea i te tika kia whai wāhi te Kāwanatanga ki ēnei momo mahi.”

E whakahĒ ANA i te kauhau a KĀwana Gipps i te marama o HŪrae 1840 (I whakahuatia I runga nei)

"Ko Te Kipa me te Kaunihera o Niu Tireni [arā ko te Kamupene] e kī ana he ōrite ngā tāngata o Niu Tireni ki ngā tāngata whenua o Niu Horana arā, ngā mohoao kāore e whai kāinga, nōhanga tūturu rānei, ā, ki ō rātou whakaaro ko te terenga atu o tō rātou ngaronga atu e rātou anō me ō rātou kaiwhakaemi kararehe, ko te painga atu… Kua whiwhi nei te rōia tianara i ngā mana ture o ngā whenua o te ao me ētahi ripoata mō ngā whakatau i waenganui i Amerika me ngā iwi Īnia, ēnei katoa e āta tohu mārire ana i te tika o te muru a ngā whenua rangatira i ngā mohoao, ā, ki te raupatu i ō rātou whenua…nō reira, kua whiwhi nei i ngā mana ture o Amerika, ka tukuna e Te Kipa tana kauhau, tumeke ana āna tāngata kaunihera i te reka o te mātauranga ā-ture, hohoro tonu te whakaae, he mohoao ngā iwi o Niu Tireni; koinei te tīmatanga, ā, ko te rite o tō rātou whakapono, ānō ko ngā whakatauākī a Euclid. I te tino whakahīhī o te Kāwana o Poihākena ki tana kauhau, ka whakapaua e ia he hereni ki te tā, hei whakamīharo mā ōna hoa, me āna pononga, ki te pai o ana kupu, mātauranga, tika."

Reta ki a Rore Stanley, Te HĒkeretari o INGARANGI MŌ NGĀ Koroni

"Mai rā anō tō mātou āwangawanga ki te Tiriti i hangaia i waenganui i ngā mohoao kirikau, e tētahi Kairauhī kāore nei ōna mana kāwanatanga, kāore hoki he whakamanatanga Karauna, he aha hoki tā te rōia i tua atu i te kī he kaupapa rangatira tēnei hei whakangahau, hei whakarata i ngā mohoao mō te wā poto."

ki a KĀwana Fitzroy

"E te hoa Kāwana – Koinei taku kōrero ki a koe. Ehara taku whakatete me taku whakapōhane i te mea hou. He mea whakaheke mai i ōku mātua me ōku tīpuna, nō reira kauaka hei pōhēhē he āhuatanga hou tēnei, engari kei te whakaaro ahau me waiho taku whanonga whakapōhane ki a tauiwi. Nā, ko taku kī kei te whakaritea he pou anō ki te tuawhenua, i Waimate ka whakatūngia ki te tūranga tika i Kororāreka ki te whakamutu atu i ā tātou rīriri. Whakarerea atu ō hōia ki tua o te moana, ki Tāmaki-makau-rau, kauaka e tukuna mai ki konei. Nāku anō taua pou i toki rā, arā i mahia mai hai whakairi kara Māori, ā, kāore i utua e tauiwi."

i tĒtahi hui i NgĀ Puhi i Te Waimate

"E ono wiki ki muri ka tutū te puehu ki te tāone o Kororāreka i te ope taitama tāne e ārahitia nei e Hone Heke, ā, ka whakaohongia, ka whakahāweangia te iwi kāinga, ka murua hoki ngā kāinga, ka heria atu tētahi wahine, arā, te hoa rangatira o Te Rore, ā, ka tokia te pou a te Kāwanatanga. Kia kore te iwi kāinga e āta noho mārie, tērā pea kua aituāhia ētahi tāngata, ā, he aha te hua o tēnei? Heoi anō kāore he tangata i aituāhia, ngā mihi nui ki te Runga Rawa, ahakoa ngā āhuatanga ki te whakamāmā i te mahi a Hone Heke, he nui te kōrero kei muri o tana tapahi i te pou haki, ā, nōku anō tēnei whakaaro. Ko te mahi a Hone Heke me tana rōpū i Kororāreka, he mahi hūneinei, nō reira nāku te mahi ki te whakatū hōia ki reira. Ka kōrero au i nāianei mō te pou kara ahakoa he rākau noa nei, engari nō te hononga ki te kara o Ingarangi kua mana. Kua rongo ahau i a Heke me ētahi atu e kī ana, he mea whakahāwea te kara o Ingarangi i a rātou, nō reira tā rātou tope i te pou. Kua rongo hoki au i ngā āwangawanga mō te Kāwanatanga o Ingarangi me te pōkaikaha ki ō mātou whakaaro. Nā te putanga o ēnei whakaaro e mate ai koutou, nō reira me whakakore atu. Ko te kara o Ingarangi he tohu rangatiratanga, oranga me te whakarurutanga. Ko te kara he mea tapu nā te mea he taumarumaru tērā. Ka horaina ōna painga me koutou, ō mātou tungāne, ka noho ōrite koutou me mātou. Ko ngā painga ka whiwhi mātou i te kara, ka mahora atu ki a koutou, ā, ko tā mātou mahi he tohutohu i a koutou me pēhea te whakamahi i aua painga. He mea atu anō e taea e mātou?… Kāo. Kua kōrero ahau mō tēnei āhuatanga mō ngā mahi hīanga a Heke ki ētahi atu rangatira, ā, kua tuhia mai he reta whakapāha mō te pou kara, ka whakaae mai kia whakatūtia anō he pou kara. Ko te utu ki a koutou, he pū. Kāore e nui aku whakahau, otiia me whakaae te iwi i hē rātou, kāore hoki au i te hiahia ki te muru i te rawa a te tangata, a tōna hoa rānei. Nō reira kia 10 noa ngā pū hei utu i ngā mahi tutū a Heke."

Mei kore ake te whakaratonga i te Tiriti, kāore e hapa taku whāki atu kia kore tēnei kua patua e te hunga kāinga te hunga Pākehā i tēnei wāhanga o te motu, ā, waihotia ana mā ētahi atu e kimi utu, pērā i ngā kainatu o Kabul. Nā taku whakapono e tapu ana te Tiriti ki waenganui i te Kāwanatanga o Ingarangi me ngā rangatira o Niu Tireni ka pakari taku kōrero i runga i te ngākau tapatahi mō te hōnore o Ingarangi, ko te mutunga atu kua kore he hē o te Kuini me te Kāwana ki a rātou."

"Ko te tāone o Kororāreka i Pēwhairangi kua pāhuatia e te iwi kāinga ahakoa i tonoa te waka o te pakanga, arā te Hazard me ngā hōia hoki a te Kāwana ki te ārai i te parekura. I whāia katoa a tauiwi, ā, ka rere mai ki konei me ngā apakura o te mate. Ko tēnei pakanga mō te mana motuhake. Kāore e tino mōhiotia ana āhea ka mutu. Ko te rangatira nei a Heke nāna nei te ope i ārahi, i kī kāore ōna whakahē mō te noho o ngā Pākehā engari anō mō te Kāwanatanga tauiwi, ka whakahēngia, ka whakakorehia e ia. Ka kī a Heke ko ngā Hūrae i whakahaua ki te mahi pereki kāore he otaota mā ngā Ihipa, ā, ka pēnā anō mō āna tāngata whenua ki te kore e āraia atu a tauiwi. Ko te whakaaro o te Kāwanatanga he tiaki i ngā iwi e rua mēnā ka taea.”

"Kātahi anō au ka kōrero ki te Kāpene o te kaipuke HM North Star me tana Rūtene tuatahi, he hoa nōku i a mātou i ngā moutere o Tonga me Wallis. E kī ana a Kāpene Everard Home ka hinga te koroni ki te kore e patua te tangata whenua kia ngaro, engari he pakanga roa tēnei, ka mutu he nui ngā moni ka pau, he maha nga tāngata ka mate, ā, kāore i tika kia riro mā te Kāwanatanga o Ingarangi e waha tērā taumahatanga. Ki ōna whakaaro mā te pā hōia i konei hei pupuri ngā moutere, hei ārai atu i ngā Wīwī, koirā noa iho mā Ingarangi i tēnei wā. Kāore e kore ka umere te hunga koroni nā te kore e tāwharautia o ō rātou whenua, otirā kei te taha katau ko te tangata whenua. He take tino nui tēnei; – ka taea anō te tiaki i te hunga koroni me ngā tangata whenua me te noho tahi hoki. Kāore pea e rata a Tā Everard kia tāngia, engari i kī mai a ia ki a au, "Tākare katoa te Kāwana — kua pōrangi." Kāore e taea te uiui i te ngākau nui o Kāpene FitzRoy engari ka taea te ui i ana whakatau. Rua rau ngā hōia nāna i pana, ka mutu nāna hoki aua hōia rā i tono mai i Poihākena, me tana whakarite i te pou haki i muri mai i te poroporohanga a te tangata whenua i te Pē, otirā he iti noa iho ngā tāngata e tāwharau ana i te pou haki, ka mutu i hinga rātou, ka tāwaitia. He āhuatanga katoa ēnei hei turaki i te angitu o te tangata. Kei konei mātou e tū ana i runga i te putu kariri ka pahū ahakoa he aha te hāora."

KĀwana FitzRoy,
he reta tŪmatahuna ki a Danderson Coates

"Ahakoa ngā whakapae he hunga kino [ngā Maori] kāore au e whakaaro poururu. Kāore hoki e taea e au te mata moe ki ngā matatuhi o taua wāhi kino. Kua kore a Kororāreka, kua kore te puta o te hara, o tēnei koroni. E kitea ana te wikitōria o ngā Karaitiana i ngā whanonga o ngā Maori – i tua atu i ētahi mohoao ruarua nei — me te noho tau o ngā mihingare me ō rātou whare, ā rātou rawa hoki, ā, ka kite te Kāwanatanga o Ingarangi, ki te piri ngā Pākehā mahi kino ki te mano o ngā tāngata Māori mau pū, te mutunga ko te rite ki Kororāreka, ki te kore e tata mai he puni kaha, hei tautoko, hei whakakaha i te Kāwanatanga."

"Ahakoa te rite o te Tiriti ki te pakiwaitara, ehara tēnei i te kōrero noa, ka tū te Kāwanatanga ki te tuku i ētahi mana ki te Māori ka mutu ko ngā Māori i āta whakamōhiotia ki taua oati. Mehemea i meinga te Tiriti hei takakino kāore rānei, kāore i te aro i ahau. Anei tāku e mōhio ana, kia kore aua whakatau, kua kore e tū te koroni, mā te pakanga rawa ki te tangata whenua me ētahi atu mahi ririki, kino atu i ō nāianei."

"Kāore pea ngā tāngata i te mārama ki ngā tikanga katoa o te Tiriti, hoi, nā mātou nā ō rātou kaiako i āta whakamārama atu ki a rātou kia tau ai te ngākau uiui me te harawene, koinei hoki ō rātou whakaaro mō ngā nekeneke a te Kāwanatanga. Ko tō rātou mohoao te korowai hei whakataruna i te ngākau pakanga o te tangata mohoao-kore."

"Kāore he whenua i kore te nōhia i Niu Tireni. Mārama tonu ngā rohe pōtae o ngā iwi, engari ngā rohe kāore i mārama, ka tautohetia, ehara i runga i te pāhao engari i runga i te pūito o te pāhao. Kua kite kē ngā mea kua noho me ngā tāngata whenua - me taku kī i tautoko hoki ngā kōrero a Kāpene Hopihona - i te uauatanga ki te whakarata i ngā whakaaro me te ngākau uiui i te hangatanga i taua wāhi noho; me te parekura i Pēwhairangi e kitea ai tōna whanaketanga mai i aua whakaaro ngākau uiui, he mea whakaohooho e tētahi nanakia tauiwi. Kāo, ehara i te mana o Ingarangi engari he whakawhirinakitanga nā ō tātou iwi i ākona ai e tātou, ki te hōnore o Peretania, ā, ki te tino tika i kite ai rātou e mahia ana i roto i ngā tikanga a te Kāwanatanga i tēnei koroni. Ko ngā pakanga i kōkiritia e ngā Māori, i mahia ki Wairau me Te Pēwhairangi. Ko te wāhi ki Wairau, he mārama te takahi i te ture i mau pū ai rātou. I Te Pēwhairangi, ka puta ngā mate, ki te raruraru te angitu o te tangata whenua ki ngā mahi a te Kāwanatanga. Arā me titiro ki Tahiti, ki te tāorotanga a te hunga kāinga i ngā Wīwī ōrite te maha ki a rātou, koinei te mutunga atu o te iwi me te koroni, mehemea i whakamanaia ngā kōrero o tēnei rīpoata."

(Te tumuaki o Te RŌpŪ TIAKI i ngĀ tĀngata whenua o Niu Tireni)

"Kāore he hua o te huna i te take i horo ai a Kororāreka, nā te pōhēhē me te mahi tinihanga. I te tuatahi he mea pōrahurahu i te mea he iti noa iho te tira hōia, me te whakatū anō i te pou haki hei whakapoapoa i a Heki nāna nei i poroporo. He nui tonu te wāriu o Niu Tireni ki te kore e tukuna anō he Pākehā taunaha. He koroni pai, he whānui inā hoki ki te tika te whakahaere Kāwanatanga. Rata katoa ngā tāngata whenua ki ngā taputapu a te Pākehā ka mutu he whakatipu rawa hoki rātou. Ki te mau te rongo ka piki ake te wāriu o te koroni, ka nui hoki te maha o ngā tāngata, ā, kua kore e whirinaki atu ki ngā kaimahi me ngā pohara o Ingarangi. Ko te pūtea me te manaaki oranga e hiahiatia ana. Otirā kāore e tutuki ēnei āhuatanga ki te raupatutia ngā whenua o ngā tāngata whenua, me ngā pakanga ka whai ake mēnā ka whakapūmautia aua mahi nanakia. Me whakahaere ture noa iho te Kāwanatanga o Niu Tireni me te mea anō hoki kia kaua rātou e whakararuraru i ngā mana tika o ngā tāngata whenua me ngā mana tika o ngā Pākehā ki te kawea ngā mahi huakore i runga i ngā whenua me ngā tāke whenua."

ki a Dandeson Coates (CMS)

"I haere mai a Kāpene Hopihona me ana oati pai, ka heria mai ngā tono a te Rōpū kia āwhina atu mātou i a ia ki tō mātou kaha; tutuki ana i a mātou, me te whakaaro anō o te tangata whenua, ki te tū te Mana o Ingarangi, ka puta he hua ki a rātou i raurangi, hohoro tonu te whakaae ki tā mātou tono.

Ka hainatia te Tiriti, ka puta te hua ki runga atu i ngā tūmanako o te Kāwana, ā, i runga i tōna ngākau whakamihi ki te āwhina, ka kī ia kia kore taua āwhina, kore ake nei e tū te Mana o Ingarangi ki Niu Tireni. Ā, ahakoa kāore i tutuki i te Kāwana ētahi o ana oati ki ngā rangatira, arā, te tuku mana ki ngā māngai o ia iwi, me te kākahu i a rātou ki ngā kākahu hōnore e tika ana, me puta anō he mihi ki a ia, me te kī, kāore i takahia e ia ngā upoko nui o te Tiriti. Engari nō te waihotanga kia takoto, ka puta ngā kōrero. Ko te kī a Rore Stanley, ko ngā whenua hua kore katoa, nō te Karauna, kāore i roa ka tae mai ki a mātou, ki ngā Māori hoki. Kei konei te pūtake o ngā raruraru katoa ki tōku whakaaro. E maumahara ana au i mua i tōku wehenga mai i te hui i Waimate, ka kī a Hone Heke (kua puta nei tōna rongo ki te whakahoki mai i te mana motuhake o tōna whenua), ki tōna whakaaro, kei te whakatika te Kuini ki te meinga i a rātou hei taurekareka, ā, ko tēnei whakaaro e ai ki ahau, i ahu mai i ngā pirihi Katorika me ētahi Amerikana… me taku mōhio anō, kei te whakaaro iho a Hone Heke he tangata pūmau ia, ā, i runga i tana Karaitianatanga, e tika ana tana mahi; kāore anō kia hapa tana karakia i te ata, i te pō, ā, e mahi ana i runga i te whakaaro tangata, pērā i ngā mahi a te tangata Pākehā i raro i ērā momo whakahaere."

Rev. Robert Maunsell
KI TE CMS,

"Te āhua nei kua tino wareware te Kāwana [hou, a Kerei], kore rawa nei tēnei iwi i whakaae ki te mana o te Kuini, ā, ko ētahi noa o ngā rangatira o ētahi rohe o te motu, i haina i te Tiriti o Waitangi, ā, i te pakanga i nā tata nei i te raki, i manaakitia ngā mauhere, ā, i tua atu i tērā, i opeopetia ngā toa taotū e te rata hōia, ka tukuna kia hoki ki te kāinga i te painga ake. … He nui taku pōuri ki te Kāwana. Kāore e kitea e mātou me he kaitohutohu āna. Kua peia mai ngā mea mōhio o te whenua, ahakoa mihingare, kaimahi marea rānei i ana kaunihera. Ko ana whakaaro kāore mātou e mōhio, kia tinana rā anō, engari ko ngā take mō aua mahi, me te whakakotahi ki ngā whakaaro o ngā Hēkeretari Koroni o mua, ki ngā whakaaro rānei o ngā tikanga mahi me ngā take tika, kore rawa mātou e mōhio."

Atirikona Robert Maunsell,
TE Mihingare nĀna i kohikohi ngĀ mokotĀ ki te kape o te Tiriti I heria ki Waikato, e whakatuma ana ki te Hekeretari o te Motu, mŌ ana whakahau i te tau 1846 kia tangohia e te Karauna ngĀ whenua kĀore i te nŌhia e te MĀori

"He aha rawa te kaiārahi o te whenua toa nei i rapu ai ki te raupatu i ngā rawa kua taurangitia ki ō mātou hoa, apataki hoki? Ki te tūpono tēnei tikanga kāore he huarahi i tua atu i wehe atu o ngā mihingare i tēnei whenua i runga i te pōuri me te upoko pakaru."

KaiwhakawĀ Chapman,
KŌti Teitei, te whakatau o Te Kuini ki a Symonds

"Me āta whakaae anō ka tika, ko [te taitara o te iwi kāinga] e mana ana, kāore hoki e taea te whakakore (i roto i ngā wā o te rangimārie) ki te kore e whakaae te iwi noho. … Whai muri ki ngā kōrero kua whakahuatia, ko te whakapūmau a te Tiriti o Waitangi i te puritanga o ngā whenua e te Māori, i whakaūngia e te Tūtohi o te Koroni, kāore i whakatakoto, ahakoa ā-tikanga mana, ā-mahi rānei, i te mea hou, mea kāore rānei i tau."

Rangatira o NgĀ Puhi
Reta ki a KĀwana Kerei

"I haere [mātou] ki te hui i Waitangi… [i reira] …i hainatia e au te pukapuka [te Tiriti], engari… kāore au i rongo ko te pūtake o tēnā [Tiriti] ko te tuku i ō mātou whenua. Ko te mea i rongo au, ko te mana o te whenua nō te Kuini, engari ko te whenua ake ka noho ki a mātou, kia kore ai mātou e murua e tētahi iwi kē — i meatia te Tiriti kia noho ai te Pākehā hei kaitiaki mō te iwi Māori…."

Ripoata ki a KĀwana Thomas Gore Browne mŌ te Āhua o te MĀori

"Ko te Tiriti o Waitangi e tuku ana i te rangatiratanga o ngā moutere ki a Kuini Wikitoria, ā, i runga i tēnā me te pānui o muri mai i whakaaehia e Kuini Wikitōria, te rite tahi o ngā tāngata o Ingarangi ki te iwi Māori katoa. … Tekau mā ono tau ngā Māori i raro i te maru o te maru o Ingarangi, tērā pea kotahi koata i whānau i raro i te maru o Ingarangi, ā, kāore pea rātou e mōhio ki ā rātou ake tikanga me ā rātou herenga. Ko te kirimana o te kūpapa me te kaitiakitanga e meatia ana, i runga i te whakaae haumūmū, i whakaae kia takoto. Kāore anō te Karauna i whakahau mōraro, tāwharau rānei."
