Kealakaa persecuted, 1876.

[Found under: “Nu Hou Kuloko.”]

Kahuna man clothed in a holoku.—This past Thursday, Kealakaa, a student from Lahainaluna, possessed by an evil spirit, practicing medicine in the uplands of Nuuanu without a license, was arrested. He grew his hair long like a rope, and when we saw him in the jail, it appeared to have turned red. He wore a woman’s holoku, like a ????. [Ua aahu oia i ka holoku o ka wahine ma ke ano aha la.] His actions were greatly appreciated by the people of Nuuanu. Ignorance is not over.

(Kuokoa, 3/25/1876, p. 2)


Ka Nupepa Kuokoa, Buke XV, Helu 13, Aoao 2. Maraki 25, 1876.
