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.

1st August, 1879.

[Translation.]
Te Pukapuka-inoi a Mariana Tuari.

He wahine hawhe-kaihe no Ngatipukeko teuei kai-inoi, a e ki ana ia i tangohia te whenua o taua iwi mo te hara o etahi o ratou. E ki ana te kai-inoi kihai rawa ratou ko ona whanaunga tata i uru ki te hara ki te Kuini. E tono ana te kai-inoi kia ata kimihia nga tikanga o tana tono, a, kia hoatu tetahi whenua ki a ia, kia rite ano ki te mea e tika ana ki a ia.

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

Ki te whakaaro a te Komiti kua rite nga tono take-iwi a te kai-inoi, no te mea kua uru a ia ki roto ki nga whenua nui kua rahuitia mo nga Maori kei Whakatane.
