New Zealand was first settled by Maori, the indigenous people of Aotearoa (The Land of the Long White Cloud), who arrived about 800 years ago. They journeyed here in the seven great wakas or ocean-going canoes.

New Zealand is the only country in the world whose constitution is based on a treaty of equal partnership (Te Tiriti o Waitangi, The Treaty of Waitangi, 1840) between its indigenous people and European settlers.

In 1893 New Zealand was the first country in the world to give women the vote. In 1984 New Zealand land, water and airspace became a nuclear-free zone. In 1999 New Zealand elected the first transgender woman to Parliament in the world. In the early 2000s women held the positions of Governor-General, Prime Minister, Chief Justice, Leader of the Opposition, and Attorney-General. The current Prime Minister is Jacinda Ardern.

New Zealand is the home of the All Blacks, the national rugby team. Over the last 100 years they have a winning record unequalled by any team in any sporting code.
