New Zealand transfers ownership of large areas to the Maori

The New Zealand government have in a historical decision transfered big land holdings valued to approximately 420 million NZD to the Maori as a reparation of their historical treatment and thereby confirming that the Waitangi Treaty of 1840 was breached by the British and New Zealand governments when they did not respect the Maori's rights to their land.
