Throughout the 19th century, the local people of New Zealand, Maori, fought the Crown and the new European settlers. [1]

Most historians agree that the Land Wars were fought between 1843 and 1872, although this time frame does vary. [2]

The main causes for the war is believed to be Maori resentment of the Treaty of Waitangi, New Zealand's founding document, and the colonial settlement by the Europeans. [3]
