Three scenes in one engraving showing the Orakei Maori Parliament of 1879. The top inset scene is of a Maori village on a curved shoreline at Orakei. The middle image shows an interior scene of the parliament at Orakei, with two Maori men in European dress talking at the front and an audience of Maori, with two European scribes. The lowest image shows an outdoor area surrounded by buildings and tents, with Maori seated in small groups on the ground. This scene is presumed to be at the parliament area.
