Waitangi marae at Te Tii in 1880

This photograph shows the Waitangi marae at Te Tii in 1880, with the meeting house Te Tiriti o Waitangi (foreground) and the Waitangi Treaty memorial (right of meeting house). The photograph was taken by Josiah Martin shortly after the completion of the meeting house. The official opening of the meeting house was organised for March 1881. As one of the few surviving signatories of the Treaty of Waitangi, Aperahama Taonui was involved in its opening, and designed the planned ceremony as a statement of unity between Pākehā and Māori.
