Published in conjunction with the He Tohu exhibition at the National Library. Each book celebrates one of the three founding documents in New Zealand's history He Whakaputanga: The Declaration of Independence (1835), the Treaty of Waitangi: Te Tiriti o Waitangi (1840) and the Women's Suffrage Petition (1893). Each book will be focussed on the document itself, and feature a facsimile of the document (or part of it). The documents are framed by an introduction from leading scholar, and a Maori perspective on the document in te reo.
