Opunui, sworn, knows Claimant's lands.

These lands are the old possession of Kaumualii, Claimant's wife from her ancestors, from Kaeo, the old King. They fell to Kaumualii, who left them to his Sister Kaihinea & she to her daughter Kauukualii, who held them in peace till 1846.

.... gave it to Kaumualii, from Kaumualii to his sister Kailinaoa, from Kailinaoa to her daughter, Kauukualii. The land has been with her during the time of Kamalahia to Kalaimoku and while her son of Kanai lived at Kahalaia. Ahukai had Makaweli until the rebellion of Kauai on 8 Aug. 1824. Kalaimoku bequested the land to Kinau, and Ahukai continued to live in Makaweli until 1840, under the same conditions he had received from his grandparents. At this time Kekuanaoa takes Makaweli ahupuaa; however, Ahukai lived there peacefully to 1846 and Kekuanaoa stirred again, but Kauukualii has remained unshaken to the present time. No disputes for section 2.

Apola Kailipaka, sworn, verifies Opunui's statement.
