Abstract

[This chapter describes the investigative commission and considers its legitimacy among the Tūhoe with regard to the reliability of its record for an ethnohistorical reconstruction. The first part of this chapter summarizes the procedure and findings of the Urewera District Native Reserve (UDNR) commission 1899–1903, especially with regard to the problem the commission faced between the surveying of the whole area into blocks and mediating the claims of hapū that controlled or contested the specific lands involved. In the second part it is argued that the balance of evidence indicates the commission was generally accepted as legitimate among Tūhoe leaders and people at large. It is furthermore argued that the conclusion of two other outside authorities (Binney and Sissons) that the investigative commission as well as the 1896 Act undermined Tūhoe hopes from the start is not well-founded.]
