For Petition see Folio 453, Book A.
Kahiahikela, kane, sworn, I was born at Kawaihae uka two years before the building of Kiholo. I have always lived there, and know all the boundaries.
Kuhelani, my Father, and his brother, bird catchers, when they were growing old, showed me the boundaries, as was the custom in olden times. I also went with them when I was young, as they were lunas under the konohiki of Kawaihae hikina.
Kawaihae is bounded makai by the sea, and has ancient fishing rights extending out to sea; bounded on the Kona side by the Ahupuaa of Waimea. In Kamehameha I time, I heard from my parents that he gave the land adjoining Kawaihae at the sea shore to Ouli; thereby making that land extend to the sea, before that time, Ouli stopped at Puuike. Davis and John Young were great favorites of Kamehameha I and he gave them the land, thereby making Ouli (Ili of Waimea) bound Kawaihae at the sea shore, instead of [page 74] the Ahupuaa. A place called Kalepemoa, a pile of stones near Waiulaula gulch is the boundary. Beginning here the boundary runs up the gulch to Paleuli, an old cultivating ground near the gulch. There the boundary runs to the left of the gulch to lawai and from thence to Puainako, where Kawaihae ceases to join Ouli, and is bounded by Napukawaiwai, an ili of Waimea. Thence along this land to Kalualepo, yellow soil on the Kawaihae side of Waihoolana, this swamp has piipiiwai and kalokaloha growing in it and is at the South East corner of Kawaihae and at the place where that land is cut off by Waipio, and Waimanu. The slope towards Kawaihae belonging to Kawaihae and the slope towards Waipio belonging to that land. No swamp belonging to Kawaihae.
(Note: this boundary has already been decided by Judge G.M. Robertson.)
The land of Puukapu does not cut Kawaihae off. It is about one and a half miles from Kalualepo to the boundary of Waipio, at a pool of water called Ulu, at the foot of the water fall, but the boundary runs along on the top of the pali above the falls, having the pali at the head of Waipio valley, the boundary runs toward Waimanu along the lands of Waipio and Waimanu, on the makai side of Waihoolana[?]; thence the boundary between Kawaihae 1st and Kawaihae 2 runs across the swamp to Napooaumihulamakaokalani, a high hill, a little toward Kawaihae of the swamp, from which you can see the corners of Kawaihae; I have seen them from there. The boundary between Waimea and Kawaihae runs on the Mana side of this hill, but a long distance from it; from this hill the boundary between Kawaihae 1st and Kawaihae 2d runs across the hill and down a ridge to Kapaliowaiu; thence along the top of said pali and down the pali into Keawewai gulch. At the foot of the waterfall; thence down the gulch to Kohala road to Keanaknaha, the pool of water below the bridge there the boundary leaves the gulch [page 75] and runs to the makai side of Lincoln´s house to the Waimea base of Olopio, a hill on Kawaihae 1st; thence the boundary turns a little way toward Kona and runs to Umelaau, where a stone crossing is built across the gulch; thence down the gulch to Makahuna; and from thence down the center of Makahuna gulch to the sea.
My knowledge has always been that Puukapu does not extend to Honokane for Kawaihae 1 and Kawaihae 2d lay between these two lands on Kohala hills. The water of Waihoolana does not flow into Waimea, but into Waipio and Waimanu.
Kiainiu, kane, sworn, I was born at Kawaihae at the time of Oku and have always lived there. Am a kamaaina of the land, know the makai boundaries, and have heard the mauka ones from old people. Piielua, my father, was a bird catcher and told me the mauka boundaries, but I never went to them with him; He used to bring down yellow soil to see, and he said that he got it from Keaewaiu; This is all that I have heard or know about the mauka part. Kauhuhu gulch is the boundary between Kawaihae 1st and Kawaihae 2d (Makahuna gulch is in the center of Kawaihae 2nd); thence up the gulch to Kenani; thence to Keawewai, the boundary runs to the head of awaawa; thence to Keanakawaha at Keawewai.
This is as far as I know the boundaries.
Kalualukela, kane, recalled.
Makahuna Gulch is the boundary at seashore between Kawaihae 1st and Kawaihae 2nd; it lays between John Young´s old house and John Parker´s house, and is on the Kona side of the latter. Kauhuhu gulch is near the try works.
Kalua, kane, sworn (same witness as on Ouli), I know the place called Kalualepo; it is a hole with yellow soil; it is near the Waihoolana. Puukapu, an ili of Waimea bounds Kawaihae 2d [page 76]; Thence to Waihoolana, a gulch of standing water. This gulch runs to Waipio. I lived there one month. Thence along the gulch to Kaapeape, a place where there used to be a settlement. I do not know that the boundary line is on Kawaihae 2nd, but I do know that the land comes to Kalualepo, which is the only mauka boundary of Kawaihae that I know of.
The boundary given is the boundary of Puukapu. I know the boundary between Kawaihae and Waimea going towards shore.
I know the hill called Napoeaumehulumakaokalani, but I do knot know what land it is on. It is a long way off toward Kohala.
Case continued until further notice to all interested parties.

The Ahupuaa of Kawaihae 2d or Kawaihae Hikina, Continued from Folio 76 of this book and folio 280 of this book.
Kawaihae South Kohala, January 20th 1876
The Commission of Boundaries for the Island of Hawaii, 3d Judicial Circuit met at the house of J.P. Parker at Kawaihae, after notice personally served on the Agent of Crown Lands, and A.J. Cartwright, Agent for Her Majesty, Emma Kaleleonalani, to take further evidence as to boundaries between Kawaihae 1st and Kawaihae 2d.
S.P. Wahine appeared on part of applicant, and presented a letter dated January 11th, 1876 from Her Majesty´s Land Agent authorising him to act for him. Charles Williams of Hamakua appears for Agent of Crown Lands.
Kaneahiku, wahine, sworn says (quite an elderly woman) I was born at Pahoa, Kohala, Hawaii. I helped carry stones at the building of Kiholo. I was married before the battle, near Keauhou in Kona in which Kekuakalani was killed. I was born the year before Kanihonui died at Oahu. I know the lands of Kawaihae. I lived here a great many years. My husband Mahi was buried in the pali of Honokoa.
I know the boundaries between Kawaihae 1st and 2d. Olohana (John Young) put us on Kawaihae 2d, and we lived at place called Ailipoa below where the church now stands. Mahi was konohiki, and I heard him telling people the boundaries.
An old heiau called Kauhuhu is the boundary at the shore between the two Kawaihae. Thence the boundary between them runs up the gulch to Olopia. Part of this place lays on Kawaihae 1st and part on Kawaihae 2d. The boundary runs up the awawa from the shore to the Kona side of hill called Kanani; Thence up to Keawewai, the boundary at that place being in the water in the gulch. I do not know very much about the boundary there, as in those days we were "noho like ma na Kawaihae elua."
From Keawewai the boundary runs up the gulch. I do not know the boundaries above there. Kamoehau is the kamaaina of the land, and knows the true boundaries.
I know the boundary at shore. I have been away from here 40 or 50 years, and have forgotten the boundaries. John Young was alive when I moved away. The beach and sea on the Kona side of Kauhuhu belonged to Kawaihae Hikina. When we came from the other Kawaihae on to this place to fish, we had to give part of our fish to Olohana.
I never heard that place called Makahuna is the boundary between these two lands. I know ili called Pohakuloa. It is on this land, and the gulch is on the other side. Keawewai gulch runs makai onto Kawaihae 1st (note: witness seems quite confused, and is very reluctant to give any evidence.)
Kamoehau, kane, sworn says (he is quite an old man, and is the one who last witness says knows the true boundaries of the land. Was sent for by Commissioner of Boundaries, when Kaneahiku made this statement. He had not previously been summoned as a witness by either party.), I was born at Kawaihae uka, I saw the Peleleu and was old enough to cook food at that time. I live on Kawaihae 1st, Kohala, Hawaii, and have always[s] lived there. I am a kamaaina of these lands, and know the boundaries between them, from the shore to mauka end. My parents told me the boundaries. Kanaawa, my father, and Nakoana, my mother, were kamaaina here. They told me the boundaries because of the killing of Olohana´s man by Kawailepolepo. They wanted to kill the man, but Kalaimaku said no, give the land to pay for it, and so the land from Pohakuloa to Waiulaula (Waiulaula is boundary between Kawaihae 2d and Ouli) was given to Olohana, and this place where we now are was left for Kawaihae 1st. Place called Pokiiahua is the boundary at shore between the two Kawaihae. It is a water hole; thence the boundary runs up the gulch to makai of Oiopio; there it leaves the gulch and runs up between olopio and Opulehelehe, and thence up auwai to Keawewai; thence up gulch to Waiaeele, a powai in gulch; thence up hills to the Waikoloa gulch where these lands are cut off by Waimea.
(Note: This witness evidence agrees with G.M. Robertson´s Certificate of Boundaries of Waimea as to the two Kawaihae being cut off by Waimea.); Know place called Kalualepo, it belongs to both Kawaihae; the Waikoloa gulch is a long way from there. Kalualepo is at the head of where the water runs to the Honokane valley. There is yellowish dirt there. I never heard in olden times that the boundary between these two lands was at Kauhuhu. The sea from Pokiiahua to Kauhuhu belonged to Kawaihae Akau, and the sea on the Kona side of Pokiiahua to Kawaihae Hikina. Mahi lived on the tract of land between Pokiihua and Kauhuhu, but was konohiki under Kalaimoku, and not under Olohana. He used to divide the fish and give part to Olohana. Olohana and Kalaimoku were noho like, so they used to give him part of the fish.
Place called Pohakuloa is on Kawaihae Hikina near boundary. Pulama is the ili aina next to Pohakuloa, and is on Kawaihae Akau. They lay side and side to the sea shore. The place where we now are is on Pulama, and Pohakuloa is east of us, where Olohana´s (John Young) house used to stand. Part of the Pohopaakai belong to Kawaihae Hikina, but most of them belong to Kawaihae 1st. The boundary between the two lands is where I stated before. The folks living mauka on Kawaihae 2d used to go after salt at the shore to the salt works near Kauhauku. The poho paakai Pohakuloa, Kaholei, Piipepii[?] Nupaa belong to Kawaihae Hikina, the other poho paakai to Kawaihae 1st. They are lele of Kawaihae Hikina. Kaneloais on Kawaihae Hikina, and I know of poho paakai called Kaneloa. Know of place of Kawaihae Hikina called Nakela, but do not know of salt piece of that name. [page 392]
Malahuehue is an ili of Kawaihae Hikina, and I know of salt place at shore by that name, and it belongs to Kawaihae Hikina. Kukui is an ili aina of Kawaihae Hikina; I do not know of any salt place of that name. Kapahukapu is an ili of Kaw ....

Loebenstein offers a tracing of Map objected to by the Government; as not made by applicant or authenticated by any one (objection sustained).
Continues - I spent 2 days on the ground; had never been on the ground before. We were at Puuloa with Akahi and Nawahie; they gave enough evidence to satisfy me they were reliable; a big [page 611] cave on the South branch of the gulch, estimated distance as expert Surveyor - they showed me a pile of stones on South edge of gulch at Puuainako, one of the boundaries of Kawaihea [sic] 1st and Kawaihae 2d by
A.B. Loebenstein; relative to testimony of Akahi, he informed me he knew very little about boundary below Lincoln Award; in the presence of others; relative to boundaries of Kawaihae 2d above the head of Keawewai gulch (objected to witness giving Akahi's evidence and objection sustained)
Akahi, I gave testimony about boundaries makai of Lincoln truly, as I was told. I saw Loebenstein a few days ago about the boundaries of these lands, and told him as I have stated in this case.
I went up with hi, F. Woods, and a boy, to where he had marked. I told him Kanakanui had been there with us. I told Loebenstein about boundaries at Keawewai, of Pickup lands, cutting them off on the other end by Waimea, to Kawaihae 1st & 2d. Puukapu is mauka side of Waimea, and kamaaina came from there.
A.B. Loebenstein: about testimony of Kanakanui, state from my inventory and knowledge of the tract of land from the head of Keawewai gulch to the North angle of this land at Paliwaiu; thence along North line of Kawaihae to summit hill at East angle of land; thence toward Eke and back to head of Keawewai stream, with excepting of land bordering on small feeders forming Keawewai stream, is not [page 612] swamp but hard land; that the drainage to North of line of tracing is toward Honokane; as also toward Waimea around the slope of summit hill, known at Waimea as the Keanniamano [sic? Keaniamano?] stream (indicates on tracing map) therefore the 240 chains distance of Wiltse survey was not run out to that described length in order that these several lands would each have their respective share of water heads & further, I have not found it possible in my survey of this land, covering several weeks to observed and pick out any of the points mentioned in testimony of Akahi and Nawahie, as visible from Puuloa down.
I was on that hill time and again, could not see the points stated by N. and A. could not see in strong wind, the point Puuainako is tract of considerable area, beginning of level place above rising ascent by old trail.
Kanakanui: could see corner fence at Makalii, with Transit; could see cave mauka of Heiau on map.

“The boundaries of the land Kawaihae 2d, are decided to be as follows. Beginning at the South angle of the land, in the mouth of the Waiulaula gulch, and run up said gulch, along the land of Ouli, Boundary Certificate No. 63, and along the land of [page 613] Waimea, Boundary Certificate No. 4, to, or as far as, the brow of Summit Hill of the Kohala range; thence along the land of Kawaihae 1st, across Summit Hill and along the ridge to Kapaliowaiu; thence along the top of said pali and down the pali into the Keawewai stream, and down the middle of said stream to the East angle of L.C. Award, No. 8513, to L. Lincoln; thence along the South east boundary of said Award to its makai corner; thence following the general course of the old Pohakuloa ditch to pile of stones on Makalii Hill; thence in a direct line to the angle in the South branch of the Makahuna gulch where it comes from the land of Kawaihae 2nd and turns makai, opposite Olopio, near Pulama; thence follow down the centre of Makahuna, South branch, to its junction with the North branch, and down the centre of Makahuna gulch to the sea; thence along the sea shore to the point of commencement.”
