Kaʻū famine, 1862.

It is said that the people of Kau are soon to be in trouble because of famine. This is because they are all busy collecting pulu (the wool from tree fern), and are not planting taro; therefore they are faced with this problem.

(Hoku o ka Pakipika, 4/10/1862, p. 2)

Ka Hoku o ka Pakipika, Buke I, Helu 29, Aoao 2. Aperila 10, 1862.
