Niue became a British Protectorate on 20 April 1900 and was transferred to New Zealand control on 11 June 1901. There was considerable local resentment to attempts to incorporate Niue into the Cook Islands which resulted in the Island being recognised as a separate New Zealand dependency from 1902.
