Parihaka

Parihaka This war was between Maori and British. The leaders of the Maori were Tohu and Te Whiti. They never wanted violence. They had three feathers to show peace.

What happened was the British built roads on the Maori land and the Maori did not like them building on they land, so every night the Maori would go outside and take down all the things that the British did. in the morning the British would come back and see what happen and they would just build the roads again this went on for quite awhile.
One day the British decided to fight they came with heaps of soldiers marching up to the Maori but when there got  they the Maori were singing dancing and there had presents to try bring peace between them. Then the soldiers took Tohu and Te Whiti on a tour showing them all the guns and at the end there asked Tohu and Te whiti what they favourite part was and they said the river.

Aboriginals injustice

At our school we have been learning about injustice. We had 6 topics Aboriginals, American Slaves, Jews ,Parihaka , Apartheid, Sweatshops and Women Voting. I choose Aboriginals.I choose them because I did know a bit about Aboriginals but I wanted to know more and what happened to them in injustice.
Doing this makes me think about how lucky I am and that this is sad that this is happening in the world. I hope one day this will stop. Here is my research, hope you enjoy.  
Who are Aboriginals and where do they live? Aboriginals are people who are the original people who are in the country . Aboriginals are indigenous to mainly Australia but there are in South Africa to. There are about  400,000 Aboriginals  in Australia. Aborigines migrated from Asia about 30,000 years ago.

New house

The old fly trap door gradually opens, I step in the scent of new paint hits me making me dizzy. The walls are bare and glossy they look like there is wet paint on them.sitting in the corner a bronze round table. Brown boxes pile up around the house, new mattress lean against the wall. The arched grey couch makes me feel welcome.

Useless Loop

Useless Loop was usual enough ; It had a park, a shop, a forest and a beach and even a little old pool. My brother my friends and I did what people in the town do - on Thursday we galloped over to the shop and bought hokey pokey ice- cream  and were creeping all around hunting for lizards under rocks and then naming them names like bob, cherry and bob junior  we also had heaps of sleepover, also we went bush bashes through the forest seeing the occasional snake slithering below are feet or we just play ball tag in the park and when we try play with Nerf guns and  I would shot my brother he would tackle me. On Saturdays we always went down to the oval and play AFL and everyone brought  their dogs to play to. Doing nothing important Lani A Adamson
