New firebrand hill, Nanaau, 1868.

[Found under: “NU HOU KULOKO: Kauai.”]

New Firebrand Hill.—W. D. Kaipoleimanu of Hanamaulu writes to proclaim his witnessing of the hurling of firebrands atop a new tall hill named Nanaau. The soaring of the fire from this hill is similar to the soaring of the fire from the famed hill of before [Makana, Kamaile, Milolii, Nualolo, Iwikui, and Aneki], and it is frequently spectated by visitors. On the night of the 8th of October, is when began the firebrand throwing. The sightseers have admiration for it.

[Any Kauai people know where this is?]
