Reports of the Native Affairs Committee, 1877.

[Report on Petitions of H. M. Rangitakaiwaho and Others, Hiko Piata and Others, Matiaha Mokai and Others]

Report on Petitions of H. M. Rangitakaiwaho and Others, Hiko Piata and Others, Matiaha Mokai and Others.

The petitioners, who are Natives of the Wairarapa, pray for a rehearing of the claims to a block of land near Greytown, in the Wairarapa, in order that additional names may be inserted in the certificate of title.

I am directed to report as follows:—

That the request of the petitioners for a rehearing of their claims before the Native Land Court appears to have received the full attention of the Government, and the Committee have no reason to think that its decision not to order a rehearing was otherwise than judicious, and moreover it appears that the certificated owners can admit other persons by deed to participate in their rights.

John Bryce,
Chairman.

22nd October, 1877.

[Translation.]
Ko te kupu a te Komiti mo runga i nga Pukapuka-inoi a H. M. Rangitakaiwaho ma, a Hiko Piata ma, a Matiaha Mokai ma.

Ko nga kai-inoi he tangata Maori no Wairarapa a e tono ana ratou kia whakawakia tuaruatia ta ratou tono ki tetahi whenua e tata ana ki Kerei-Taone, Wairarapa, he mea kia kuhua atu etahi ingoa ke atu ki roto ki te tiwhikete.

Kua whakahaua ahau kia ki penei atu ki te Whare:—

E maharatia ana kua ata tirotirohia mariretia e te Kawanatanga te tono a nga kai-inoi kia whakawakia tuaruatia taua whenua, a kahore he take i whakaaro ai te Komiti ebara i te tika te whakataunga a te Kawanatanga kia kaua e whakaaetia te whakawa tuarua, tetahi hoki e kitea ana ka ahei nga tangata e mau ana o ratou ingoa i roto i te tiwhikete ki te tuku atu i runga i te pukapuka i etahi atu tangata kia whai tikanga tahi ki o ratou paanga.

John Bryce,
Tumuaki.
