A Maori woman holds high a mere in a battle stance. Signifies Maori women taking over from Maori men in the fight to keep their lands. The bar represents the Native Land Courts from which the Te Kotahitanga women at the Te Aute meeting had undertaken to seek justice no longer.Behind the bar the notice reads - A great Maori meeting was recently held at Te Aute. Miss Makere Mihi occupied the chair. They found, she said, that all their lands were drifting from them to the Government servants, or to the people that the Government chose to put on their lands. The men endeavoured for a long time to do something, and now the women had formed themselves into a committee and were going to see what they could do in the matter. If they did not succeed they would find themselves like the shags which sat on the sand banks and were fed by the winds. The following resolutions were carried - (1) That we have nothing further to do with the Native Land Court. (2) That we cease selling land.
