Ocean disaster, 1887.


This past Monday, March 21, two canoes went out fishing from Kawaihapai in Waialua, Oahu, with these people, Kaaiulaula, Kauhola, Hina and Keawemahuilani. After they fished, they went back to land. But the problem was that the water was all rough at the cove from where they left. And when they took the risk to land, the canoes flipped and broke up; three of them came to shore safely while one was lost, that is Hina.
