Reports of the Native Affairs Committee, 1879, No. 1.

No. 278, 1878.—Petition of Marian Stewart

No. 278, 1878.—Petition of Marian Stewart.

Petitioner, a Half-caste woman of the Ngatipukeko Tribe, states that the land of that tribe was confiscated for the disloyalty of certain members thereof. Petitioner alleges that neither herself not any members of her family were ever disloyal to the Queen. The petitioner prays that the particulars of her claim, which she sets forth at length in her petition, may be investigated, and that she may receive an award of such land at Whakatane as she may be found entitled to.

I am directed to report as follows:—

That, in the opinion of the Committee, the tribal claims preferred by the petitioner have been satisfied by her participation in large Native reserves at Whakatane.
