Lekia, sworn, I have seen this claim in Kawananakoa, Honolulu of several taro patches and a pasture for potato planting, which have not been cultivated.

Mauka, R.C. Wyllie's land
Waikiki, Nuuanu Stream
Makai, Paakahi's land
Ewa, M. Kekwanaoa's land.

Land from his father, Kaiawa in1840 as a bequest, Kaiawa, Sr. had received it from Kaniua long before the death of Kinau. Kaiawa deserted the land early this year of 1854, and is with Hopkins in Koolau. The land is overrun with weeds and because of the opposition by R.C. Wyllie, the land has not been cultivated to this day.
