Reports of the Native Affairs Committee, 1893.

No. 495.—Petition of Hare Reweti Rongorongo and 29 Others

No. 495.—Petition of Hare Reweti Rongorongo and 29 Others.

Petitioners allege that a portion of their reserve at Ohinepuhiawe, Manawatu, has been cut off through a change in the Rangitikei River, and that the Europeans at Bulls are endeavouring to secure the same as a recreation-ground. They pray for relief.

I have the honour to report that there is some doubt as to whether the Natives have been deprived of any land, and as this can only be set at rest by a survey, the Committee recommends that a proper survey be made, and the whole matter be considered by the Government.

28th September, 1893.
