Over 175 years since the Treaty of Waitangi was signed, the publication of two books on the Treaty offer an opportunity to check-in and assess the shape of the Treaty and the Crown-Māori relationship in contemporary New Zealand.  Both The Treaty on the Ground: Where We are Headed, and Why it Matters and New Treaty, New Tradition: Reconciling New Zealand and Māori Law demonstrate that there are still new ways of looking at the Treaty, fresh perspectives to be explored and considered. There remains a need for ongoing, meaningful commitment to the Treaty, and for new conversations about its status, its implications, and its continuing significance for all in Aotearoa/New Zealand.
