Why New Zealand ?

Quality of Life in New Zealand

In many ways its not what we have thats important to our quality of life its what we dont have! We dont have high crime rates, our police dont carry guns and instances of corruption are virtually unheard of. We dont have abject poverty or hunger and we dont have the pollution, congestion, health issues and cramped city living that we see elsewhere. One of the things you will find here, and its something we take very seriously, is our acceptance of different views and ideas. We are a modern, secular, democratic society with no ingrained class system. Freedom of speech, expression and religious belief is guaranteed in law.

History

Maoris were the first inhabitants of New Zealand, arriving on the islands in about 1000. Maori oral history maintains that the Maoris came to the island in seven canoes from other parts of Polynesia. In 1642, New Zealand was explored by Abel Tasman, a Dutch navigator. British captain James Cook made three voyages to the islands, beginning in 1769. Britain formally annexed the islands in 1840.

The Treaty of Waitangi (Feb. 6, 1840) between the British and several Maori tribes promised to protect Maori land if the Maoris recognized British rule. Encroachment by British settlers was relentless, however, and skirmishes between the two groups intensified.
