Reports of the Native Affairs Committee, 1877.

Report on Petition of Hoani Kerei

Report on Petition of Hoani Kerei.

Petitioner prays that confiscated land at Whakatane may be restored to his tribe, on the ground that his parent, although, in common with the rest of his tribe, engaged in fighting against the Queen, always gave intimation to the Europeans of an intended attack.

I am directed to report as follows:—

That the petitioner has shown no ground of claim, unless as a member of the Ngatiawa tribe, whose claim as a whole has been fully satisfied.

John Bryce,

31st October, 1877.
