A New Year’s Gift: a Genealogy of Rulers, 1874.

A NEW YEAR’S GIFT.

The Kuokoa, on this first issue of its proud days of 1874, wants to gift this Genealogical List of the Rulers over the Hawaian people, starting from Kahiko Luamea, from the pen of S. M. Kamakau. It was upon Oahu that the ancient ones first lived, and the genealogy from before this is not from here in Hawaii, but it is said that they were from the sky [lewa]. The first people in this genealogy, it is widely stated that they are from the Islands of the South Pacific, New Zealand, and the islands to the Western North Pacific. And the listing of Alii Genealogy below just pertains to those who were Aliiaimoku. From Kahiko Luamea to Kapawa, they just ruled on Oahu. From Kapawa to Palena, most of the Alii were on Oahu and Maui; one was from Kauai, Luanuu; and two on Hawaii, Wahieloa and Pohukaina; and from Palena is where Hawaii’s royal Ancestry from Maui come from. And from Palena was born Hana, thereafter Maui’s and Hawaii’s chiefly line have been born until this time. It began from Abraham, being that the laws were the same, the genealogy was the same, and the circumcision was the same. Here are the alii listed out:
