Reports of the Native Affairs Committee, 1904.

[No. 559, 1904.—Petition of Makareti Pihopa (Mrs. Evans, of Paeroa, Auckland).]

No. 559, 1904.—Petition of Makareti Pihopa (Mrs. Evans, of Paeroa, Auckland).

Petitioner, who is a half-caste, alleges that owing to her and her brothers and sisters having been brought up as Europeans they have been deprived of their full share in their ancestral lands. She prays that inquiry may be made with a view to their receiving their just rights.

I am directed to report that the Committee recommends that this petition should be referred to the Government for inquiry.

25th October, 1904.

[Translation.]
No. 559, 1904.—Pitihana a Makareti Pihopa (Mrs. Evans, o Te Paeroa, Akarana).

Ko te kai-pitihana, he wahine hawhe kaihe, e ki ana, i runga i te mea i whakatupuria ratou ko ona taina me ona tungaane hei Pakeha, no reira kaore ratou i whiwhi i nga puru hea e tika ana kia ratou i o ratou whenua tupuna, a e inoi ana kia tu he uiuinga i runga i te mahara kia whakawhiwhia kia ratou o ratou paanga tika.

Kua whakahaua ahau kia ki penei, ki te whakaaro a te Komiti me tuku atu tenei pitihana ki te Kawanatanga kia uiuia.

25 o Oketopa, 1904.
