  • Q3

     Read the following sentences from the text.

    “The European ships brought something else with them that would change the way of life for the Maori: guns. The Europeans used a specific type of gun called a musket. The Maori people had never seen a musket. The musket allowed fighting to be done at long distances. Certain Maori tribes began to trade food and supplies for guns and gunpowder. As a result, some tribes had guns while others did not. This divided the villages and changed the balance of power among the tribes. Beginning in 1807, the Maori fought one another with muskets. Conflicts from the 1810s to the early 1830s became known as the Musket Wars. While no one is sure how many people died in these conflicts, some believe about 20,000 people lost their lives.”

    What can you conclude about the Maori based on this information?

    European trading with the Maori changed the way that tribes related to each other. 

    Many Maori people had friends who lived in Europe and knew how to shoot guns.

    Maori people did not want to use guns, but eventually used them only for hunting.

    European settlers refused to give the Maori guns, so they had to take them.
