Tauranga Māori Land Alienation


This report provides a statistical overview of the alienation of Maori land within the Tauranga Moana inquiry district after 1886.

The tribunal's stage one report covered most, though not all, of the alienation of lands returned after the Tauranga confiscations and lands reserved from the Katikati and Te Puna purchase up to 1886.  As the majority of the research reports show, the major issues of concern are
linked to the urban and industrial expansion of Tauranga and Mount Maunganui with its subsequent impact on Maori land ownership.  

This report was able to quantify the broad pattern of post-1886 Maori land alienation within the inquiry district, including modes and patterns of land loss. The report identifies the extent of Maori land retention and Maori land loss to the present, and quantifies the extent of alienation by private sale, Crown purchase, public works taking and through status declarations made under section 6 of Part I of the Maori Affairs Amendment Act 1967.
