The clump of bush on the western side of the Karangat[gap — reason: damage]hi stream, and known as Oruatamatea, was allotted to Hakopa Tohitama and Teone Rehu, jointly; half an acre being reserved for church purposes.

The division of the bush land was regulated very much by the quality of the timber; and the quantity already sold by private individuals was considered in determining their respective shares.

Before leaving Canterbury I prepared and gave to each Native a plan of his allotment with a certificate of ownership.
