.... se was built my husband gave (us) those moos over there. His village became ours because we lived together. When Halaeloa died Kamakini acquired Puunoa and when it was released from Kamakini Kaahanui received it. Then we returned to that land again and when we were released (from the land) it was acquired by Mahine. I do not know about his life there now.
