Ka Wa Kahiko Ma Ke-ia Kaia-ulu



I na- makahiki umikumaiwa kanahiku a me kanawalu, ua kekahi mau hale li'ili'i i ua noho na- mea he'e nalu o ke kaia-ulu. I na- hopenapule o na- kauwela ua kanikapila ma ka pa, nui na- poe ua lohe i ka "pohaku a lola", ua puhi la-kou i mau'u kanawai 'ole, a inu i ka pia. Ua pa-ina nui loa, na- hopenapule apau o na- kau wela apau. O kuene o Lopaka me ka umi'umi' li'ili'i. Ua hana no ka hui kelepona o Kimo. Ua noho i ekahi hale li'ili'i o Iepe mai Niu Ioko, ua hoaloha me Liki Lamukena, ekahi mea he'e nalu mai ke kapakai hikina, ua make loa o ia no na la'au. Ua noho ekahi wahine ua makemake o ka ho'opiopio ana me na- mea he'e nalu o ke kaia-ulu. Ua kumu o ia.


Kokoke i ka nalu o na- hale li'ili'i. Hiki i hele wawae ma'alahi i ke kai a ho'hoe a na- nalu. I kahakai ua hiamoe nui na- wahine opio, kekahi mau komo 'ole ka uhi o ko- la-kou lole 'aukai. A, no ka mea ua na- kanahiku, i na- manawa apau, ua ka puhi o ka mau'u kanawai 'ole ma laila. 'A'ole kanawai na- ilio i kahakai, aka- ua pa-ani la-kou i ka wai me na- keiki a he'e nalu na- keiki ka-ne ma waho i na- nalu. Nui ka le'ale'a, ka hau'oli, o kela mau makahiki. Aka- like me na- mea apau, ua ho'opau ia. I ekahi 'ino nui nui, ua nalowale ka one apau, ua koe pohaku wale. A laila, ua make loa o ka ola o ke-la kahakai. Ua ne'e na- poe apau o ke kaia-ulu. Ua luku na- hale li'ili'i o na- mea he'e nalu, a ua kukulu ekahi hale kui ma laila. Ua ekahi manawa kula, aka- hele aku ia i ke-ia manawa.
