'Eā, e nā hoa puni heluhelu nūpepa o ke au kahiko, he mamo nō 'o Kalei, he mo'opuna kualua ho'i, na John Wise, kahi mea kākau kaulana a kākou i 'ike ai ma mua. A 'o kekahi ho'i ia (Wise) o nā kānaka i noho mua ma ka 'āina ho'opulapula Hawai'i ma Ho'olehua.

'O kahi mea nui, e like me kāna i 'ōlelo ai, he kama'āina 'o ia nei no ia 'āina. 'A'ole 'o ia he malihini e komo wale aku ana i ia 'āina me ka nīele a maha'oi paha. Wahi a Kalei, ua nui loa ke kōkua a me ke kāko'o 'ana o kona mau mākua. He aha ia mau hana kōkua a kāko'o ho'i? Na 'oukou nō, e nā makamaka heluhelu, e ki'i aku i kāna pepa laeo'o ma ka Hale Waihona Puke 'o Hamilton ma kēia hope aku, a e heluhelu aku 'oe, 'oiai, he mau mea hou aku nō e ulu ai ka hoi. Ho'omaika'i iā 'oe e Kalei a me kou 'ohana.

Wahi a ka lohe, ua hiki aku ka nui o nā iwi kupapa'u i hua'i 'ia a'ela e nā kānaka e kūkulu aku nei ma ia 'āina, i ka 238 a 'oi aku. He nui loa ia, āhea lā e pau ai ia hua'i 'ana? Ke hiki aku i ka 300? I ka 500 paha?

Inā i pau ka 'eli 'ana aku i ka hua'i 'ana mai i ka iwi mua, inā ua maika'i wale 'o Kawaiha'o, hemolele i ka mālie. Eia na'e, ua noke aku nō lākou lā i ka 'eli 'ana a me ke kūkulu 'ana me ka nānā 'ole 'ana aku i ka pono o nā kūpuna i kanu 'ia ma laila a loa'a nā iwi kupapa'u he nui loa.

No Waiākea paha ia lunakānāwai, kahi i holo ai ka 'ōlelo, “Waiākea pepeiao pulu'aha.”
