Reports of the Native Affairs Committee, 1876.

Report on the Petition of Natives of the Ngatiraukawa Tribe

Report on the Petition of Natives of the Ngatiraukawa Tribe.

This is a petition from Rawiri Wanui and other members of the Ngatiraukawa tribe, and is somewhat vague in its terms; but it appears, from evidence taken by the Committee, that the Ngatiraukawa tribe wish certain lands to be included in their tribal boundaries, which were not included by the Court which adjudicated on the matter, in order that they may receive payment for the same.

I am directed to report as follows:—

That the Committee do not feel justified in making any recommendation to the House in favour of the petitioners, and beg to refer to their general Report, brought up on the 23rd August, on the subject of virtual appeals from the Native Lands Court.
