Native Register To the Honorable Commissioners who Quiet Land Claims, of the
Hawaiian Islands. Greetings to you. I hereby tell you of my claims. This land is
there at Panahaha, in Honouliuli. Here are its boundaries: towards the North, the
Kahawai of Makaii; towards the East, the loko of Panahaha; towards the South, the
land of Mokumeha; towards the West, the land of Pio. Kawaa gave it to me.1
Native Testimony Mokumakuaole sworn and stated: I know the place of Kalauhala
at Honouliuli, Ewa, Oahu, a land area and a house site. The boundaries are: mauka,
an overgrown area (aina nahelehele); towards Ewa, a stream; makai, the loko ia (ﬁsh
pond) of Panahaha; towards Waianae, an overgrown area. Gotten by Kalauhala from
Kawahaea in the year 1837, and he has lived there to this time. He was opposed
by Kealiiahonui before, and it was tried before Hooliliamanu in favor of Kalauhala
in the year 1844. There are two loi and a house lot with one house there. It is not
enclosed with a wall. The one the Kawahaea received it from was Kahakai.
Kawahaea sworn and stated: I know this place just the same as Mokumakuaole
has stated, but I have no claim there, the role as konohiki is ﬁnished.2
Foreign Testimony Mokumakuaole sworn. I know this place, it is in Honouliuli in
district of Ewa. Consisting of House lot and Kalo in one place. Bounded mauka by
bulrush lands; by Ewa Stream on Honolulu side; makai by a pond called Panahaha;
Waianae by bulrush land.
Claimant got his land from Kawahaea in 1837, and has held if from that time to
the present. The right was disputed to this place in 1844 by Kealiiahonui who took
away what part of it he pleased. Kalauhala appealed to the Lunaauhau (Tax assessor)
and it was tried before him & recovered by ordering it back to Claimant who has
held it undisturbed ever since. There is one house belonging to Claimant. Kawahaea
received the place from Kahakai.
Kawahaea. I gave the land to Claimant and make no further claim upon it. The
testimony given about bounds and every other particular is true.3
