.... iniha, should it roll on the other side, it shall be for Lumahai. My grandmother, Kanopio had indicated to me these boundaries as has been related and I have repeatedly heard of them since their death to the present time.

Kanohi, sworn, I was born at the time Kaumualii was with the government, I have seen the boundaries of Wainiha and Lumahai over which there is a dispute. Waialeale is mauka nd runs until Kahililoa, then coming back to Kapuuwahie, to Kalualepo or Kaluakukae and continuing to Makakiloia, finally reaching Kekuakahea. Kahulupue was Konohiki of Lumahai and Kamaholelani was chief. I have known from that time to the present that this land section over which there is a dispute, in that it belongs to Wainiha has been taxed. This had been a lele section for the ili of Wainiha named Kiilua, where there was taro and the sea and the tax for Wainiha has been high because there was a great amount of noni here. My father Kiko told me about these boundaries and I have remembered to this time. I am a Konohiki at present for the ili of Kiilua.

Kuiwaa, sworn, I was born during the time of Kaumualii here in Wainiha and I have seen the boundaries between Lumahai and Wainiha. Mauka is Waialeale and coming this way to Kahililoa, to Kapuuwahie, to Kalualepo or Kauakukae, from there to Kamakakiloia, running until Keakuakahea passing the rock on that side which is for Lumahai and passing on this side for Wainiha. I have known this disputed place has been taxed; that is the ili of Kiilua, I haven"t heard about this boundary but, I have actually seen it for having lived together with Kamaholelani. My parents are natives of this place and I have known the boundaries of the disputed land. I have heard from Kamaholelani that husband of Kekela, about the boundaries of this land. I have not heard that this boundary is for Lumahai.

Kamaka, sworn, I was born during the time of Kamehameha I, in Kohala, Hawaii. During the time of Liholiho we came to Kauai here in the role of a kahuna and landing on Huleia. Kaumualii came from Waimea and it was the kapu period when we arrived in Wailua. We were there until the kapu was lifted and it was there until the kapu again in Anahola to the heiau of Wainiha for which Kahulupue was the kahuna. He related that Waialeale is the boundary mauka and no land has reached Wainiha except Waialeale. Makakiloia is on the ocean side and there was no house upon our arrival there, I had not seen any more and we the kahunas of Kaili the god were told by Kahulupue that the heiau is the boundary of Wainiha.

Keaka (wahine), sworn, I was born in Kainaliu of Kona, Hawaii before the battle of Nuuanu. I came to Kauai here for the first time with by brother Kinopu and lived here in Wainiha, then Kalaimoku let us (two) have Wainiha. I had heard about Waialeale as the boundary and it was hearsay only about these boundaries as related by the witnesses. Living has been peaceful, only at this time I see there is a dispute.

Daniel Oleloa, sworn, after the battle of Wahiawa I became the over-all luna of Kauai and on my tour I noticed that all of the people on this side made their tributes on Wainiha here, it was the same for that side of this ridge, tributes were for Lumahai.

I do not know the true boundaries which would separate these lands, but I have known the tenants of these two lands well.
