.... time Hoomoeapule was konohiki and I believe the land is for the konohiki.

Nohonani (witness for Nahookele), sworn, I have seen this land, the patch Kahaiao in the ili of Kahaiao of Moanalua and it was enjoyed by the common people, Keehi was separated it was a koele toward the sea, it was not in the uplands. When Hoomoeapule had possession of the land, Hoapili and Kai went to Moanalua to work in the patch, Niau. After this was done, Kai ordered Hoomoeapule to cultivate the patch Kaiahao. It was time of Harvest when Hoapili had returned from the battle of Kauai, however the taro was not of good quality and the patch was given to Pupuka. This was before 1829.

Kaakau (Wahine), sworn, during the time of Kumuehuea and Ulili, there was no koele in this patch, it still was not a koele when Hoomoeapule had possession of it. Nohonani's statements are true.
