N.R. 187Bv9



To the Land Commissioners: I hereby state my claim. When the grass church stood in Koloa, there was no haole there at that time. Kulika ma were the only teachers at that time and the teachers went to Kaikioewa to request land for themselves at that time. I received my house lot, a /taro?/ land and a sweet potato mo`o. Therefore I believe I have a right there /dating/ from that time until this day. My land claim is of long standing.
A respectful farewell,
ALIKA
Honolulu, Oahu
7 Feb., 1848

.... a area and is not completely cultivated.

Section 1:
Mauka by road
Puna by Koloa road
Makai by Kepuu's land
Hanapepe by Kukuiula road.

Makai boundary disputed, Alika says it is from 1841. A. Makanui says it has been cultivated up to the ditch on the makai side next to Pooahonu. Mataio's testimony agrees, its mauka of the ditch. His land came from Kaikioewa when Mataio was serving as Konohiki to the present time. No one has objected.

Kahookui, sworn, I have heard the testimony of A. Makanui. This boundary was not disputed until Koleka wrote a claim to Oahu in 1848. The ditch is the makai boundary, in his opinion.

Mataio, sworn, the ditch is the boundary.
