[Hiiaka and Wahineomao folks come upon a halau filled with men, women, and children, at Wailua Iki. The activity within the halau was hula.]
While they were standing, those inside were dancing hula. The hula being performed at that time was a hula olapa. When they were at a break, Hiiaka chanted, for she saw her cousin, Kapokulani, sitting amongst the verdure. Kapo saw their young alii and her tears began to flow.

It is important matter in the newspapers. Continue reading →
