Reports of the Native Affairs Committee, 1882.

No. 219 of 1882.—Petition of Rangi Tuataka and Another

No. 219 of 1882.—Petition of Rangi Tuataka and Another.

Petitioners state that their father, Takerei Waitara, a member of the Ngatimaniopoto Tribe, had given the land in Taranaki, southward of Parininihi, into the occupation of Wiremu Kingi, but still kept his right over it; that this land had been since confiscated, and that part of it is now being returned to the Maoris. They pray that a piece of land may be returned to them.

I am directed to report as follows:—

That if the petitioners have a claim within the confiscated boundary, they should make it before the West Coast Commissioner, or other proper tribunal.

28th July, 1882.
