Reports of the Native Affairs Committee, 1877.

Report on Petition of Ema Katipa

Report on Petition of Ema Katipa.

Petitioner states that her husband and brothers were Natives loyal to the Queen, and that, in November, 1868, they were surprised and murdered by Te Kooti; and she further alleges that lands to which the murdered men and petitioner had a title have been taken by deed of cession to which she was not asked to be a party. That, in consequence thereof, she has suffered a loss estimated at £500, and prays for relief.

I am directed to report at follows:—

That the Committee recommend that inquiry be made into the matter referred to in the petition, and that, should the statements made by the petitioner be found to be correct, redress of the grievance complained of ought to be afforded.
