Reports of the Native Affairs Committee, 1882.

No. 183 of 1882.—Petition of Hariata Ngahiwi

No. 183 of 1882.—Petition of Hariata Ngahiwi.

Petitioner prays for a grant of land at Hamilton, but gives no reason for the request.

I am directed to report as follows:—

That when the petitioner was young she was living with Europeans, and seems not to have applied for land to which she might have been entitled. She is said to be a woman of good character, and keeps her children at school. Her husband is blind, but receives a small Government pension of £15 per annum. It is said she may have a claim on land in Taranaki. The Committee recommends her case to the favourable consideration of the Government.
