Kanehoalani, 1885.

[Found under: “LOCAL AND GENERAL.”]

The wooden god Kanehoalani was found on August 3d at Molokai in a house lately occupied by Kuakala. The natives believe that this god first came from Tahiti and landed at Piliwale, at Molokai, and was once kept by the ancestors of the late Kuakala, who worshipped it.
