Testimony

N. Keau, sworn, (same witness as in Waikoekoe) I have lived here for over fifty years, and the boundaries of Waipio are well known to me. Lalakea, an ili of Waipio bounds it on the Hilo side. I have had charge of Lalakea and have leased it for over ten years, and when I leased it I went and saw the boundary between it and Waipio. The mouth of the river is the boundary at shore between Waipio and Lalakea; thence up the wall between Lalakea and the stream and thence up the stream to makai of G.W.D. Halemanu's house; there turn and run up the pali, called Pueohuhunui. [page 112]
Note
The old boundary that runs up the pali is mauka of Halemanu's house, the boundary surveyed is makai.
The place at the foot of the pali is called Waimihi.

Note
Keau points out the ridge as running up above A.S. Cleghorn's store.

Thence along the brow of the pali till you come to a place called Poolakiki, there is a rock there on the pali called Hakalaoa, an old stone god. The boundary has left the top of the pali and come along on the side to this place; thence to the foot of Hiilawe falls; thence along the foot of the pali to an auwai; thence up the auwai to a stream of water (the patch called Haha is on Lalakea) thence up the stream to Kukauloa, a patch where I used to plant food; there the boundary of Lalakea turns into the pali again along the loi, and along the base of the pali to the land of Ohia; thence to the middle of the pali to a place called Apailolo, a road which used to run out to the head of the valley. This is the mauka corner of the land (This is established by Certificate of Boundaries of Waimea, asthe corner called Kilohana of Waipio and Lalakea). Kilohana is a resting place at the mauka end of the pali.
Cross-examined
I do not know the mauka boundaries of Waipio or what lands cut if off on the mauka end.

Paaoao, kane, sworn, I was born in Waipio Hamakua at the time of Peleleu. I havealways lived here and know the boundaries.

Kamehameha I told me the boundaries.

Kamehameha I did not tell me the boundaries.

Keala, my makuakane, told them to me. He had charge of Lalakea and I sometimes went there with him. My mother, Pelele, was a kamaaina of Waipio and she told my father who was from Molokai; the boundaries between Waipio and Waimea. Lalakea bounds Waipio on the Hilo side. Commencing at the shore close to a heiau called Akahakakapapauloa, on the Hilo side of the stream; thence the boundary runs to a wall in cloasing [sic enclosing] a fish pond on Lalakea; [page 113] thence along the kuauna to Halemanu's cook house; thence to the Court House and up an awaawa to the top of the pali; thence to the awaawa of Kaluahine, on Lalakea. The top of the pali is called Pueohulunui; thence mauka along the side of the pali to the road called Puaahuku (contradictory evidence); thence along this road to the brow of the pali that bounds Kemama and Lalakea; thence along the pali to Hiilawe falls, to Puaahuku road; thence along the brow of the pali to Opailolo [Apailolo?], a road that used to lead to Waimea that runs down the head of the valley. I do not know of any place called Kilohana. The head of this road, at the top of the pali is where Waimea joins Waipio; Thence along Waimea along the head of the pali, the awaawa belonging to Waipio and the land above to Waimea. The ridges between the awaawa, in the valley and Waipio, but the land above the big pali is Waimea; thence along the brow of the pali to Ulu. From here I have been told that Waipio runs up to Waihoolana, and joins Honokane. Waimanu does not reach above Kealai. I do not know whether it ends there or not. I do not know what land bounds Waipio from Kealai to Waihoolana; have never been beyond Ulu. From Kealai to sea shore Muliwai ....
