Abstract

This article reports the findings of a 1998 survey of the general New Zealand public's attitudes towards race relations and the Treaty of Waitangi. The survey sought to determine whether demographic variables such as age, gender, race, and educational level impact attitudes towards the Treaty of Waitangi and the Treaty Claims Settlement Process. The survey findings indicate some polarisation among New Zealanders according to ethnicity on certain issues, and a general lack of knowledge and/or informed opinions about sovereignty, Treaty, and Tribunal issues.
