Māori Land Court, Ahipara

From 1865 the Native Land Court (later the Māori Land Court) facilitated the sale of Māori land to government and private buyers. By 1908 less than 20% of the north was in Māori control. This photograph of a sitting of the Māori Land Court at Ahipara was taken in the late 19th century.
