Pule's land, toward the sea

Kaaiawaawa's parents had lived on this property during Kamehameha I's reign and they had given this land to Kaaiawaawa; nevertheless, Kalaihopu is the konohiki for all of Kaaiawaawa's patches and the pasture had been from Kanakahilau in the year 1844. No one has ever objected and Kaaiawaawa has been living there to this day.

Oni, sworn and stated, "I have seen these places exactly as Aoao has just related to you."
