To have a wish come true using a wishbone, two people make a wish, then take hold of each end of the bone and pull it until it separates. But all at once she clasps his neck, and with cheek to cheek, she clings, she moans, she gasps her last throbs of love and passes away; and her poor torn corse lies limp within the arms of the love-lorn chief.

The SCA ( Society for Creative Anachronism ) is an international organisation dedicated to researching and recreating pre-17th century European history. At Kaalawai he placed a white and brown rock. He felt [247]conscious that it was Aiai his father, therefore he went there and Aiai showed him the place of the pa (fish-hook) called Kahuai, and he said to his son: �Here will I stay till you return; be quick.� Upon Puniaiki reaching the landing the canoes were quickly made ready to depart, and as they reached Kapapoko and Pakaka, at the sea of Kuloloia, they went on to Ulukua, now the lighthouse location of Honolulu harbor.
