'WAITANGI' is a locality in the Bay of Islands, New Zealand (Aotearoa), and is historically significant in relation to an 1840 Treaty of Waitangi signed between the earlier inhabitants and European arrivals. The Treaty served its purpose in its day, and is historically now 180 years in the past.  Many people still trying to live in that past era, creating contentious issues surrounding race, rights and grievances, all promoted by an 'industry' of political and other interests that gain from being involved.  Understanding will help bring the freedom to make a healthier and more content people.

'METOIKOS' is a Greek word.  I understood it to mean a person who feels they are living as a stranger or alien amongst those of his own country or city.  It was also a pen-name used at times in New Zealand by Hugh Carleton (1810-1890), journalist, newspaper founder and editor, who left a very interesting record of experiences caused through the nature of Colonialism in early New Zealand.

The 'TRAIL OF WAITANGI' pages were on this site prior to 2023, most or all of which were placed here in 2002.  They are written about the few years leading up to the 1840 Treaty of Waitangi until several years after, and were intended to show the difference of spirit or nature of the peoples involved.

Now that we are further along the track in time, the players are the same, excepting for the extent of the racial significance in New Zealand today (2023), a condition promoted since the Treaty.
