There Are No Youths of Kohala That Just Wander About.
The idea of this saying is that when Kohala youths go travelling, they take along provisions: vegetables, meat, and so forth. Looking at it in another way, it is like a boast; it is saying that Kohala has no vagrants; they are prepared in every way when doing things. In English, the whole thought goes: “There are no bums in Kohala,” and is a boast.
[During this period, there were many articles on traditional proverbs printed!]
