Ke kālailai mo'omeheu 'ana i “Ka mo'olelo hiwahiwa o Kawelo, ka hiapa'i'ole a ka ikaika, ka mea nāna i ho'oha'aha'a ke 'o'ole'a o Kauahoa, ‘Ka U'i o Hanalei.’ 'O ka mea nāna ka lā'au kaulana 'o Ku'ika'a, a nāna ka wahine ho'olei 'īkoi 'o Kānewahineikiaoha”
This thesis presents a modernized orthography and an annotative analysis of “Ka Mo'olelo Hiwahiwa o Kawelo,” the ancient epic originally serialized in the Hawaiian language newspaper, Home Rula , in 1909–1910. The modernized orthography aids in clarifying probable meanings of the epic's oftentimes esoteric language by including, among other modifications, the glottal stop (infrequently used in the original) and the macron (not used at all). The analysis examines how the unique construction of selected beliefs and practices marks them as distinctly Hawaiian.
