Reports of the Native Affairs Committee, 1888.

No. 483, Sess. II., 1887.—Petition of Aporo Tipitipi

No. 483, Sess. II., 1887.—Petition of Aporo Tipitipi.

Petitioner prays that a rehearing of the Awhiturua Ngapuna Block may take place, as it has been wrongly awarded to a section of the Ngatiwhakaue Tribe.

I am directed to report as follows: That the petitioner shows a great hardship has occurred to a large section of Natives suffering from the Tarawera Eruption, in consequence of the Native Land Court not giving effect to a gift of land made by one tribe to another. The Committee therefore recommends that the Government make inquiries with a view of providing relief.
