Pōmaikaʻi kekahi mau pailaka ʻelua i ka Pōʻaono nei.

ʻO ia aʻela kekahi poʻo nūhou o kēia lā, ka lā mua o ka mahina ʻo Malaki, he Pōʻakahi. Welina e nā makamaka heluhelu. ʻO Ke Aolama kēia a penei ka nūhou.

Ua hoʻopakele aku nei ke Kiaʻi Kai i kekahi mau pailaka ʻelua ma ke kai o Lānaʻi i ke ahiahi o ka Pōʻaono nei. I ka wā o ka mokulele e lele ana, pilikia ihola. A kuʻu ihola ka mokulele he ʻewalu mile mai ka ʻāina aku o Lānaʻi. Ua hoʻouna aku nei ke Kiaʻi Kai i ka mokulele pinao mai ke Kahua Mokulele o Kalaeloa a me ka moku mai Maui. ʻO nā kānaka kinai ahi o Maui kekahi i hele aku i laila ma ka moku a me ka mokulele kekahi. Akā, ʻo ka mokulele pinao o ke Kiaʻi Kai a me kona poʻe ka mea i kiʻi aku i ia mau pailaka ʻelua a lawe maila i Oʻahu nei. Hiki maila lāua i ka haukapila ma ke kūlana kūkonukonu. ʻO ka mokulele, ua piholo ihola.

ʻAneʻane e pau i ke pena kīkī ʻia kahi kiʻi paia ma ka Pāka Kahua Pāʻani Kahiko i Mōʻiliʻili. He kiʻi ia e hōʻike ana i ka moʻolelo o Mōʻiliʻili a me ia pāka. ʻO ia pāka kahi o ke Kahua Pāʻani o Honolulu mai ka makahiki 1926 a i ka makahiki 1976. I kēia manawa, he pāka ia nona nā ʻeka ʻāina he ʻeiwa. Ua hōʻike nā kamaʻāina o ia wahi a me nā kānaka nona ia pāka, he 600 ka nui, i ko lākou mau manaʻo, a ʻo ia ka mea i hoʻoulu ʻia ai ʻo Luke DeKneef a me kona hui ma ke pena ʻana. Ua alu like ke kūlanakauhale, ka hui ʻo AARP Hawaiʻi, ka Papahana Kāʻei Uliuli Hawaiʻi, ke Kula Hoʻāmana ʻo Voyager a me kekahi mau hui ʻē aʻe ma ia papahana pena kiʻi paia.

Eia mai kā kākou ʻōlelo noʻeau,

Laulaha ka ʻai a ke ʻahi.

ʻO ia hoʻi, ua piha ke kai i nā waʻa e lawaiʻa ana i ke ʻahi. A ʻōlelo ʻia nō hoʻi no kahi hale kūʻai a ʻoihana a hui paha e ulu pono ana.
