No. 256, Kalukini

Greetings to the Land Commissioners: I am petitioning for my own house lot on which I live. All our rights came from our residing with my makuas and they are all dead and I have grown old in this place. I am the one who knows all this. I myself am the eyewitness that this is my lot which I made with my makuakane. After we got the right to live here we made it /the lot./ But it was investigated by the governor and the Judges, and the lot was awarded to him and I got it, as heir, in the year 1832. It is told to you that this place of mine is an old right from my makua who reared me and lived on it. They were kama`ainas there, fishermen. When Kuihelani, the Haku /landlord/ sailed, food continued /they continued to support themselves there/.

This is not all, there is much more to tell.

.... a hearing for two sides. The argument had involved a small border which when Kalukini's father had died, it was willed to Kalukini because he had no other children and Moo had opposed to this in January 1846. He was an attendant living in Kalukini's house.

Keikinui, sworn by the Word of God and stated, This property is at Kapuukolo. I have known about this property because I had been sent by M. Kekuanaoa to make settlements. Lapaula is on the north; Manini on the east; Olina is on the south and the sea is on the west. The lot is for Ulili who is the father of Kalukini. I have not known how Ulili had received his interest. In the year 1837, 1 had seen the place being enclosed and this was opposed by a woman, also there were other people living there. Since the time I had made settlements to the present time, the land has been left as is and Kalukini has it now. When I had seen Ulili, he had one house and he is the father of Kalukini.
