‘ONE SUN IN THE SKY - The untold story of sovereignty and the Treaty of Waitangi’ by Ewen McQueen, presents an evidence-based perspective on the question of sovereignty and the Treaty of Waitangi.
Ewen McQueen raises serious questions about the modern dual-sovereignty paradigm of Treaty interpretation. It is this interpretation which is now being used to promote co-governance between Māori and the Crown. In this book McQueen reviews the historical evidence for how the Treaty was understood by Māori and Pākehā both at the time it was signed in 1840, and for the century which followed.
Thoroughly researched and fully referenced, it is a must-read for all New Zealanders. Copies can be ordered online at: https://www.onesuninthesky.com/order
