Reports of the Native Affairs Committee, 1887, No. 1

[No. 44.—Petition of Ihakara Rangiahua and 5 Others.]

No. 44.—Petition of Ihakara Rangiahua and 5 Others.

Petitioners state that certain pieces of land were sold by one Ngarauru to the Government by stealth, under deceptive names, and they pray that those lands may be returned to them.

I am directed to report as follows: That, the Judge of the Native Land Court having refused rehearings in these cases, and the Committee having no power in the matter, it is recommended that Government take once more into its consideration the question of rehearings generally.

25th May, 1887.

[Translation.]
No. 44.—Pukapuka-inoi a Ihakara Rangiahua me etahi atu tokorima.

E Inoi ana nga kai-pitihana mo etahi pihi whenua i kiia e ratou i hokona tahaetia e tetahi tangata ki te Kawanatanga ko Ngarauru tona ingoa, i hokona i runga i nga ingoa whakariro ke, a e inoi ana ratou kia whakakokia aua whenua kia ratou.

Kua whakahaua ahau kia ki penei: I runga i te mea kua whakakahoretia e te Kooti Whenua Maori he whakawa tuarua mo enei kehi a i runga hoki i te mea kahore he mana o te Komiti mo runga i tenei tono e tonoa ana te Kawanatanga kia whiriwhiria ano aua take tono whakawa tuarua.
