Hauula? 1899.

GOD IDOL.

Below Waipahu a person found an akua kii in the water, and he brought it up to Mr. Aki to put on display to the public. This is a wooden idol carved from a Hawaiian wood, and it is not know how long it was left in the water. The name of this kii is Hauula, and it is said that it was a great favorite of its kahu; it was fed fish before the kahu touching it. This kii was sold to Mr. Aki for $30.

[Is Mr. Aki the same person as A. L. T. Atkinson?]
