This story takes place in New Zealand. It also takes place in an era where there were conflicts
between Maoris and and civilians; "whites" and indigenous .
In that age, indigenous where normally over abused by "whites" because they believed that the were more powerfull
because of their colour of skin. This story potrays one example of this: some pakehas try and achieve to bereft an old
Maori froms his lands, to build some school and medical services' buildings
