New Zealand’s Maori King movement and its relationship with the British monarchy
Vincent O’Malley

In 1858 the first Maori King was installed. Although Europeans commonly depicted the Kingitanga (the Maori King movement) as a challenge to British sovereignty over New Zealand, supporters saw nothing incompatible between allegiance to their own indigenous monarch and ongoing adherence to the person of Queen Victoria (colonial governments were another matter). For Maori the relationship was a deeply personal bond, cemented through the Treaty of Waitangi that had established Victoria as a great chief of New Zealand. Long after the British government had ceased to have any meaningful role in the governance of New Zealand, Kingitanga supporters continued to look to the monarch to honour the undertakings entered into on Queen Victoria’s behalf at Waitangi in 1840. This belief in a special relationship with the British royal family survived war and land confiscations in the 1860s and endures today, giving rise to Queen Elizabeth II’s unprecedented involvement in a 1995 apology to the Kingitanga for past Crown actions.

was not always clear that the clergy of the Churches of England and Scotland did enjoy a special relationship with state-proclaimed fasts and thanksgivings. Proclamations issued in Upper and Lower Canada carried no instructions to Anglican clergy, and senior churchmen in these places worried that other churches used special occasions to claim an elevated public status. Jacob Mountain, Quebec’s Anglican bishop, pointed to an order issued by his Roman Catholic counterpart in November 1812 (it was for thanksgivings following

not been a happy one’. 85 The repeated references by Caribbean politicians to the idea that the British West Indies should emulate Puerto Rico’s Operation Bootstrap prompted the mission of industrialists to claim that Operation Bootstrap had in fact not been a complete success, and in particular that the four state-run factories had all made losses during the years they were government controlled. A more fundamental issue raised in the report was that it was the special relationship that Puerto Rico enjoyed with the United States that was in

prayer, and the cataloguing of providences, encouraged the idea that God recognised individual colonial territories and treated colonial communities differently. When drought devastated South Australia in 1865, an Adelaide minister took it as proof that the colony was a new Israel and had a special relationship with God, as no other country, he thought, had experienced such punishment after decades of commercial prosperity and religious improvement. 75 More generally, Meredith Lake has noted that some nineteenth

indigenous costume and sports also featured in Canadian royal tours, first with the Prince of Wales in 1860 and then on a larger scale for the Duke and Duchess of York in 1901. Through such spectacles, indigenous peoples accepted the monarch’s ‘parental protection’ and endorsed ‘their right to exist in the British North American community’, as well as ‘their special relationship with the Crown’. 134 Some white Canadians worried that to encourage the participation of First Nations peoples was to celebrate ‘savagery’, and that the
