It was one of the last lands to be settled
















Polynesians settled New Zealand in 1250-1300 and developed a distinctive Maori culture
NZ was first discovered by Europeans in 1642 when Dutch sailor Abel Tasman arrived. He left NZ after several of his crew were killed by Maoris, and it was not until 1769 that English Captain James Cook arrived and mapped the land.
Natives protested and in 1845 the Maori Wars began and lasted until 1872

FAMOUS PEOPLE
Despite NZ has been culturally isolated from the rest of the world, since the 90's it is a modern, multicultural and consumer-oriented nation, as any other western country.
Kiwis are friendly & independent people. They love outdoor activities (hiking, swimming, fishing, kayaking, skying, surfing, etc.) and they are very proud of their healthy active way of life.
They are committed with ecology and since they are quite isolated from the rest of the countries Kiwis use to travel quite a lot, especially when they finish university.
Contemporary Kiwi food
combines its largely British heritage with a lively exploration of European, Asian and Pacific influences.

New Zealand's climate is complex and varies from warm subtropical in the far north to cool temperate climates in the far south, with severe alpine conditions in the mountainous areas.
New Zealand is situated in the "Ring of Fire". As a result of the collisions of tectonic plates it has lots of earthquakes and volcanoes.

Earthquakes:
they are common but not usually severe. About 20,000 per year but only about 200 of them are strong enough to be felt. (in 2011 about 185 people died in the Christchurch earthquake)

Volcanic activity:
it has about 12 active volcanoes, and three of them are in alert level 1.

NZ became a British colony in 1840, after signing the Treaty of Waitingi with Maori
The cause was the usual tension between land-hungry settlers and the natives compounded by the British assumption that they had acquired full sovereignty over the Maori after the treaty, and the Maori conviction that their autonomy persisted
