Kaaipuni, sworn and stated, "I have seen this lot of Kaaikanaka in Honolulu here;

our place is mountainside
John Hobbs, Ewa
Kaleleokalani's place, oceanside and
Nuuanu street, Waikiki.

This property has been enclosed and there are four houses within. Kaaikanaka has one house and we had lived there under Kekuanaoa. In the year 1833 Kaaikanaka then lived under Kekuanaoa. Maiokahiki and Pala had house interest only. It was at the time of Kaomi that we had lived there and had built a house and an enclosure."
