Reports of the Native Affairs Committee, 1877.

Report on Petition of Nepia Tokitahi and Others

Report on Petition of Nepia Tokitahi and Others.

The petitioners ask that no new Native land law should be passed this year, but that the question should be left till next year for settlement, so that both races may assist in making the law; and they ask further that forty chiefs should be appointed to make laws for the Maori people.

I am directed to report as follows:—
