This Archipelago, including the islands above, are Lehua, Kaula and Moku Papapa; there were other names for these islands during the time of Wakea, and during the 902 generations from Lailai. (Buke Mele Alii, mele of Kaumualii.*)
[This reminded me of the new exhibit I hear is starting at the Bishop Museum which they are calling Journeys: Heritage of the Northwestern Hawaiian Islands. This mele is one of the many mele where traditional names of the islands in the great archipelago can be found!]
