No. 4167, Kaiheauau
N.R. 88-89v7

Greetings to the Land Commissioners: We have a claim in some land areas in the Ahupua'a of Mapulehu on the Island of Molokai. Kaluanui is the name of this 'ili which is mauka. The 'ili on the makai side is for Waimea.

We took up this claim a very long time ago. Laa, the konohiki of Keoua, gave it to one of us. We have occupied and cultivated this 'ili from that time until this day. Formerly, po'alima labor was done but at this time we are excused because of having children and because of old age. This is kula land, 141 fathoms long by 46 fathoms and a yard in width.

The second claim is our taro land, which is 36 fathoms long by 15 fathoms wide -- these are taro lo'is.

We request that if this claim is found valid, it be awarded to us.
