Amau o ka uka iuiu, 1869.

[Found under: “NU HOU KULOKO: Oahu.”]

In the morning of this past Tuesday, we saw a great procession of horse with their backs [? kuamoo] mounded with the fronds of amau ferns of the uplands

being brought along on King Street and perhaps to the home of the Major [? W. L. Moehonua]. We recall our youth, when it covered the roofs and gables of pili houses and maybe houses of pandanus fronds.

(Kuokoa, 1/9/1869, p. 3)
