No. 5361 & 5494, Nawaiki


Kahaule, sworn, I know the land of claimant in Papaea which he held in his own right. It consists of two pieces.

No. 1 is a house lot in the ahupuaa of Papaea.
No. 2 is a taro lot.

Claimant became konohiki (luna) of Papaea about the year 1836 and occupied these two pieces but for the remainder he only acted as luna under Kahekili, who was real owner of the whole ahupuaa.

The two places above named which I pointed out to Mr. Gower and which he surveyed are the true claim.
