Eia ma luna o ko mākou hōkua e Hawaiʻi, ke hāʻawe aku nei e hōʻikeʻike aku i ka hala ʻana, lele ke aho, a moe ʻoni ʻole ʻo ka Pua Aliʻi Kiʻekiʻe pili ponoʻī o ko Kamehameha Hale. He ukana luʻuluʻu, walania, aweawe a lihaliha nānā iwikuamoʻo o kēia lāhui e kaniʻuhū iho ai. Ua pio ke kukui o ko ke Aliʻi Nui Keʻelikōlani hale; ua pūanuanu ka home o nā Kamehameha; a ua nele ka lāhui i ke Aliʻi Kiʻekiʻe mai ka pāpū Aliʻi kūkahi kahiko o kēia pae moku. ʻO ia ke Aliʻi kahiko aku i ko nā Aliʻi ʻē aʻe a pau, ʻoiai ʻo ia e ola ana; a i kona make ʻana, ua koe ihola kona pōkiʻi Aliʻi Pauahi Pīhopa.

Ua loaʻa ʻo ia i ka maʻi pīwa, a no nā lā he 11 wale nō, a hāʻule akula.

Pēlā i hiki mai ai ka lono i Honolulu nei, a i loaʻa ai he kumu e holo aku ai nā aliʻi, ka Mōʻīwahine Kaleleonālani, a me kona hoahānau ke Aliʻi Pauahi, ma muli o ia lono hoʻopūʻiwa, a ʻo ka Mōʻī paha kekahi ma ia huakaʻi.

Ma ka hola 10 o ka pō Poʻakolu Mei 23, ua hālāwai pū nā aliʻi me ke aliʻi maʻi; a ma ka ʻike aku a nā aliʻi malihini, he maikaʻi nō kona ola e make ʻole ai, akā, ma ka hola 9 o ke kakahiaka o ka lā 24 aʻe, ua haʻalele maila ʻo ia i kona kaikaina a me kona kaikoʻeke, e paʻiāuma aku ana nona, a me nā ʻōhua pū. Aloha ʻino.

Ua lele loa aʻe ke aho o ke Aliʻi ma kona Hale i kapa ʻia ka “Haleʻōlelo” ma ka pā o Huliheʻe. Aloha wale ʻo ia.
