This mele inoa for Kamehameha I pays tribute to Paka‘alana, Chief Līloaʻs ancient temple in Waipi‘o Valley. “Wahine pi‘i ka pali” is from the legend of Hainakolo. This chiefess climed the cliff in Waipi‘o Valley, eating taboo ‘ulei berries without praying to the local deity, and she became sick. However, she recovered and resumed life in Waipi‘o.
