Open question

Descpion:we have been learning about the treaty
Waitangi Day commemorates a very historic and important event that took place in New Zealand 176 years ago on Saturday.
At Waitangi, in the Bay of Islands, a treaty was signed on February 6th 1840 between 46 local Māori chiefs and Captain William Hobson, who represented Queen Victoria and the British Government.
This treaty was written in English and then translated into Māori by a Missionary named Henry Williams and his son named Edward.

My question

Why did The British what the land

Who were the people that were there (the people buying the land)
Who were the people that he passed
