The authors found that the knowledge presented by Ngāpuhi Nui Tonu gives New Zealanders crucial new insights into the history of our country.

The chiefs had no doubts about their own mana … Our tupuna signed He Whakaputanga and Te Tiriti so that their power and authority could be recognised and provided for. They would never give their power and authority away, or forego their way of life.
