.... rk day; however, the konohiki could not be appeased. He continued to plunder, for the land was abundantly rich with many things which caused him to be full of greed.

Finally, he took the food yield and gave it to someone else leaving Keaka and her children without food, a condition which this day remains in the hands of the konohiki. I believe this action by the konohiki appears as if it had been eviction and it is not right. I believe Keawepoepoe has a true claim in this land and is in accordance with the law.Keaka had died of small pox and the land has been bequested to her daughter called Keaka. She still lives today and her parents had taken care of the land.

Postponed: until Moehonua, the konohiki is available.
