@Anson Pa'alani Sing regarding Kipapa and Kekapahaukea, they are from Hawai'i island. I have a little info on them that I'll have to go look for in my papers. I requested to add you. In the meantime, i'll go look and see what I have. Are they your kupuna?

I would appreciate any information regarding Hinau `ohana?  Also, information on John Kinomakani (Kaaumoana) would be appreciated too.  I understand that he was `ohana to John Kukahiko (originally from Hawai`i Island).  Information on Hinau `ohana, originally from Waimanu Valley on Hawai`i Island, would be appreciated.

Aloha mai kakou! I also have Teteki in my family line and was wondering if someone could site the source of his name.  I'm working on my family's geneaology and would like to learn more about tracing back the Hawaiian side of the family.  Any help would be much appreciated.  Mahalo nui!

The King of Tonga would welcome me in but will I accept his invitation as one who descended from the Kamehamehas or as a makaainana with shackles as was done to me and not to him? I was told all my documents were thrown into the trash but the churches tell me to identify myself I would need to chant my mokuauhau and this I can do.  Today everyone  can produce papers bought for their purpose but can they chant their mokuauhau? My mama tells me if one has to chant past three generations to get to a king, don't bother. What do you think? Can you?

J.K.RENAULD:You may already have the info on your family name KAIHE going back to TETEKI or KAIHE TETEKI 1724 Maui. This name goes back into the New Zealand line...Interesting because the name KAIHE md. Mele Heleloa (Kuheleloa,Kanakaheleloa,Helela) into my ancestry line. Try going to the Library and have the clerks pull out the Polynesian book and see what you can find.

searching for all info regarding the KAIHE ohana name(s) from Kaupo, Kipahulu, Hana, Maui
