To the Land Commissioners, Greetings: I, the one whose name is below, hereby state my claim to you.

There are some lo`is at Olowalu on the Island of Maui, in the `Ili named Kaumukahi, 12 lo`i. One is at Hawaiikekee, one is at Kamani, one is at Wailoa, there are two other mo`o, and the two enclosures within the land, and makai also is one enclosure.

Furthermore, there is the place of my makuahine. She has no kane, and I, the keiki, am the one who assists her. There are 29 /lo`is/; they are very small and /include/ her house claim. Her claim is known of by Commissioner Kaauwai, but it has been enclosed by fence by the new people. The new people occupied it long after 1843, whereas the length of my makuahine's occupancy was from 1830. These are the explanations to the Commissioners in whom the Mo`i has placed his power.
