On a drive from Lāhaina to Kīhei, Kumu Hula Cody Pueo Pata lamented over the dry and barren riverbeds of the south side of Maui. Kumu Pueo was perplexed by the irony of the place names of areas such as Waiākoa, Kūlanihākoʻi and Waipuʻilani, indicating a past profusion of water. Through this mele, he entreats the waters to return in their myriad of forms and to flow once again.
