dc.description.abstract[No abstract. The following is from the introduction:] This thesis examines the involvement of Hineipaketia Te Hei in the sale of and succession to tribal land that she exercised authority over in Hawke’s Bay during the nineteenth century. Little has been written about Hineipaketia and she has for the most part been ignored in written historical accounts. At best she is a shadowy figure attached to the better known figure of Te Hapuku who was effectively the ‘government agent’. Hineipaketia had ultimate authority over large tracts of land, which without her assent could not have been purchased by the Crown. In written sources she is viewed as a woman of high rank who had authority over and was eager to sell as much land as possible.en_US
