Reports of the Native Affairs Committee, 1880.

No. 371 of 1880.—Petition of Pirihira Tetia

No. 371 of 1880.—Petition of Pirihira Tetia.

Petitioner says that he belongs to the Te Kerewai hupu, and that he has been deprived of land at Waitara. He prays to be sent for should a Court sit at Waitara.

I am directed to report as follows:—

That this is one of a class of vague petitions for large tracts of country. In this case the lands named are of extensive area, and held by both Europeans and Maoris. The petition might, however, be referred to the West Coast Commission.

28th August, 1880.
