Manihiki people befriended, 1869.

[Found under: NU HOU KULOKO: Oahu.”]

While the moon shone brightly these past  nights, a portion of the Hawaiians crowded on Queen Street mauka side of Mokuaikaua. They watched the singing of the Manihiki which took place in the estate of the late M. Kekuanaoa. There are many Hawaiians who befriended these malihini as aikane, friends, and so forth. During the day, the aikane are allowed to fetch their malihini friends to accompany them in the daytime, and in the evening, return them to their usual place. Therefore, they are seen at the corners and street sides, leading and gathering their precious ones.
