Abstract

Following the arrival of the Church Missionary Society in 1814, the establishment of a mission station in Kerikeri in 1819, and Hongi Hika's return from England with some 300 muskets in 1821, major changes were taking place in the Bay of Islands. Local politics became increasingly volatile, as Rangatira (Chiefs) vied with each other to control Europeans and access to their material goods. This sketch of the Bay of Islands was produced during this time.
