A i ka Pō'akahi nei, kūpale aku nei 'o ia i kāna pepa nui no ka polokalamu laeo'o, a 'o ka inoa o kāna ha'i 'ōlelo, 'o ia ho'i, “He mo'olelo no ka 'a'ahu o ka po'e ali'i wahine Hawai'i.”

'O kekahi mea hoihoi, 'o ia ka pa'a o ka mana'o o nā ali'i wahine, e hana i ka lole i kūpono no ke 'ano o ko lākou mau kino, ke 'ano ho'i o ke kino o nā wāhine Hawai'i a me ke 'ano o ka nohona ma Hawai'i nei, a pēlā pū me ka mo'olelo Hawai'i. A hō'ike mai nō ho'i 'o Maiko i nā hua'ōlelo hou e pili ana i ka lole, i loa'a iā ia ma ka noi'i 'ana. He mau hua'ōlelo ia no ke 'ano lole haole, a 'o ka hua'ōlelo Hawai'i ka mea i mōakāka ai ke 'ano kino o ka lole.

He maika'i wale ia ha'i 'ōlelo 'ana a Maiko, a he mea maopopo wale, pēlā nō ho'i kāna pepa nui, ke pa'i 'ia.

Ua kau nō ka pe'a a holo aku nei ka wa'a i ke kai hohonu, a komo ka wa'a, a pae pono maila i uka nei.
