.... y claim in Hauhaukoi I is from the bequest of our father, while Kaheana's own land is at Hauhaukoi II; therefore, I think it befitting that my land should be returned to me.

Kaheana, sworn, Kianui's statements are true. The house site and the house are for him and I have no rights there. I have a separate land. Today I am returning to him the house and beneath it are for him, yet I shall live there just as our parents have done, providing my young brother, Kianui, willingly consents to this.
