La o Sana Valekino, 1897.

Yesterday was the day of lovers and jokesters, and it is called by the haole, “La o Sana Valenstine” (St. Valentine’s Day), or perhaps “Sana Valekino” is what is correct. It is a day to exchange gifts between lovers in goodwill or maybe in teasing and in jest.

S. M. Kamakau on Capt. James Cook, 1867.

[Found under: “Ia Ioane Kaimiola.”]

If we consider the history of Captain Cook from the start to the end, I do not come out with a flawless name or a good name for him. If there is built a Memorial to Kalanimanookahoowaha for his killing of the destructive scamp Captain Cook, that would be something most appropriate.

[This is from a  lengthy detailed response to a critique by Ioane Kaimiola (“S. M. Kamakau.” in Au Okoa, 3/18/1867, p. 1) of Kamakau’s portrayal of Cook.]
