.... y of that same year. This Kuiaia was born at the time of Poki and he has always lived there. Nihonui had been the only one who had objections for this place. He has died, survived by his daughter.

Kahoowaha, sworn, I have known the same way as Luiki has stated on the boundaries, the tie the land had been received and the bequested. From my understanding of this claim, it is truly for Kuiaia and Nihonui has no clear title. This place was not given permanently. Nihonui had custody only of this place for Kuiaia. That was Hamea's bequest on the day of his death. Nihonui's claim was not valid.

Decision: The land is for G.D. Kuiaia. Nihonui has no land.
