The Pamphlet Collection of Sir Robert Stout: Volume 71

Native Lands

Native Lands.

The Maoris—aboriginal natives of New Zealand-possess considerable tracts of land, chiefly in the North Island. Their rights are rigidly respected, and the Government can only acquire such lands by purchase. When a purchase is effected, on the Governor being satisfied that the title is complete, they are brought under the Land Act by a Proclamation in the Gazette, and thenceforth are dealt with as Crown lands in the interests of settlement.
