Abstract
This paper intends to trace the perception of time as expressed in law making concerning The Treaty of Waitangi and related legislature in New Zealand from its colonial conception to the present day in the era of globalisation. I argue that the influence of modernity has seen an accelerated conception of constitutional lawmaking which signifies in New Zealand the adoption of the indigenous into the same temporal framework as the coloniser at the same time as it re-inscribes political domination in terms of space.
