Welina e nā makamaka heluhelu o Kauakūkalahale. 'O ia po'o mana'o e kau a'ela ma luna, no loko mai ia o ka mo'olelo o Kānealoha. He mo'olelo maika'i nō ia e hō'ike ana ē he mea nui ka ho'ohana 'ana i kou no'ono'o kanaka 'ana ma kēia ola honua. 'A'ole e hahai wale aku i kou hoa i ka lele po'o wale aku i loko o ka wai me ka nānā 'ole i ka nui o ka wai. He hana ia e puka ai ia 'ōlelo kaulana, 'o ia ho'i, “'A'ohe ou 'ī mai, 'a'ohe wai o lalo ē.” A 'o kekahi ha'awina nui o ka mo'olelo o Kānealoha, 'o ia ho'i, he pono ka nānā 'ana aku i ke kumu, 'o ia ho'i, nā mo'olelo i ili mai i o kākou nei mai nā kūpuna mai. He mau mo'olelo ia e a'o ai kākou i ka hana akamai a na'auao ho'i e hana ai, a me ka hana hūpō paha a na'aupō ho'i e kapa 'ia ai 'o ka mamo hope loa a Wa'awa'aikina'aupō.

Ma ka mo'olelo o Kānealoha, ua kuhihewa ke ali'i 'o Kalakanihina, na Kānealoha a me kona makuakāne, me Kalalapopoulu i ho'opō'ino i nā lua 'ua'u ma ke kuahiwi, a no laila, he mana'o ko ke ali'i, e 'imi 'ia aku 'o Kānealoha a me kona makuakāne a loa'a, a e pepehi 'ia aku lāua a make. E 'imi aku ana ke ali'i me nā kānaka he mano ka nui ('o ka mano, he 4,000). I ko lākou 'imi 'ana a'e, aia ka makua a me ke keiki ma ke po'o o ka wailele 'o Halulu e pūlehu ana i ka manu. E ka makamaka heluhelu, 'o ia wahi a Kānealoha mā e pūlehu manu ana, he wahi hāiki ke alahele e hō'ea aku ai, a he ho'okahi wale nō kanaka e hiki ke hele aku i ka manawa ho'okahi, a e 'au mai ana 'o ia i ka wai a e hō'ea ana ho'i ka hohonu o ka wai i ka 'ōpū. Ma hope iki mai, 'ike akula 'o Kānealoha i ka ho'omaka o ka wai e 'ale'ale, a he mea maopopo, 'a'ole e 'ale ka wai ke 'ole e loa'a ke kumu, a i ia manawa, ho'opuka a'ela 'o Kānealoha i ia po'o mana'o e kau a'ela ma luna, “Haehae ka manu a Kānealoha ke 'ale nei ka wai” me ka 'ai pū nō i kāna manu me ke kahe 'ana iho o ke koko. A i ka puka 'ana mai o ke kanaka mua o ke ali'i mai kahi hāiki mai, ua lālau a'ela nā lima wīkani o Kānealoha, a pepehi akula 'o ia i ua kanaka lā a make. A pēlā 'o ia i pepehi ai i ia mano kanaka. A 'o ia ihola ia māhele o ka mo'olelo.

'Eā, 'a'ole 'o Kānealoha i hakakā aku me ia mano kanaka ma ke kula pālahalaha, 'a'ole 'o ia i hakakā me nā kānaka 5 a he 10 paha i ka manawa ho'okahi. Ua hakakā pākahi 'o ia me lākou lā. Ma ke akamai o kona no'ono'o kanaka 'o ia i lanakila ai, 'a'ole ma ka ikaika a me ka mākaukau 'o ia wale nō.

A ke kuhi nei ko 'oukou mea kākau, 'a'ole paha like ka hana a ko 'Amelika. 'O ka mea mau paha iā lākou, 'o ia ka ho'ā'o 'ana e lanakila ma ka ikaika a me ka mākaukau, 'o ia wale nō, a 'o ke akamai a me ka na'auao, he mau mea 'ole paha ia iā lākou.

Pēlā 'o 'Amelika i hana ai ma ke kaua 'o Wiekanama a me kekahi mau kaua ‘ē a'e paha kekahi. Inā paha i nānā nā luna o 'Amelika o ia wā i ke kumu, inā paha 'a'ole i nui loa nā koa 'Amelika i make māinoino ma ia kaua.

(E ho'omau 'ia.)
