No. 87 of 1882.—Petition of Reneti Te Whauwhau, and 45 Others.
Petitioners state that, unknown to them, other tribes had sold their land at Katikati. They say that in 1864 part of their land had been confiscated for rebellion, but leaving a portion for them, and that after this settlement they had gone to reside in the Hauraki District, where they remain. They pray that the Europeans may be turned off the land, and that it should be returned to them.
I am directed to report as follows:—
That this was the subject of two petitions, which were fully reported upon last session, and no new evidence has been adduced.
