Reports of the Native Affairs Committee, 1880.

No. 180 of 1878.—Petition of Eru Takihi and 16 Others

No. 180 of 1878.—Petition of Eru Takihi and 16 Others.

The petitioners state that by Maori custom they owned Kauangaroa, and that they never parted with their rights; that they had never taken part with the Hauhaus; that they had refused to cede their land to the Government. They pray that the land may be restored to them.

I am directed to report as follows:—

That the block referred to was conveyed to Government in 1869 by arrangement, out of confiscated land, and there seems to have been no misunderstanding upon the matter at that time; that, consequently, the Committee has no recommendation to make.

28th July, 1880.
