Abstract
Volume 2, No. 1
18430102


 
pp.1-3 Editorial pledges to continue campaigning for good relationships between Maori and Pakeha, but argues that there is still the need to continue to educate Maori about the correct customs of the Pakeha. The Editor expresses disappointment that the custom of cannibalism persists and argues that the habits of some will reflect upon others. He asserts that the battles waged by Ngāti Whakaue will end in their demise as should the `kingdom of Wiro' [Whiro, Satan] which incites such practices, and acknowledges that Te Karaka [George Clarke Snr] is at Tauranga to attend to such practices.
Advises that Pakeha goods desired by Maori should be paid for and not taken, otherwise Maori goods may be taken as compensation, and that it is incorrect to tell untruths about the ownership of goods as such actions are against the law and may result in the confiscation of material property or imprisonment.
p.3 Ngāti Te Ata and Ngāti Tamaoho
Disputes over land holdings and rights of residence.
p.4 Titiro-haere and Nohopai [Spectator and Good Citizen]
Conversation between Spectator and Good Citizen concerning the power, customs and habits of Pakeha. Supports government publicity that land sales will not disaffect or disadvantage Maori, that land will be left for Maori and their descendants to cultivate, that Maori will not be enslaved by the loss of land or by Pakeha, and that only if Maori take up the transient and unfavourable habits of the Pakeha-Maori will hardship prevail. Continued in Vol. 2, No. 5:19-20.
