Aloha kakou. Here's a pa'ani that I came up with a while ago.

I'm going to name a place, historical figure, famous person from any island, or anything else, and you have to tell me what island is associated with whatever I put down. Then you choose another one. I'll start out easy:

Honolulu?

Honolulu? That would be the island of O'ahu.

Here's another one: Keali'i Reichel?

Ni'ihau. "Kahehelani" ("pathway to heaven") refers to a shell there that's used in lei-making. ;)

Next: Keahialaka

Keahialaka? I am guessing a place on the island of Kaua'i

Keahialaka is the name of a spring and pond somewhere around Pahoa on the Big Island (I think).

Next: La 'Elima

Wouldn't that be O'ahu? I'm thinking about the 'ilima lei, and I also know the song... Am I right?

Next one: Pani'au.

No, you're not correct. Try again. A clue: it's not on Oahu

Keanae on Maui. Still looking for the place that's referred to in the song "La 'Elima"

It also talks about a tsunami that hit the area...

More specifically, from huapala.org

Source: Diane Aki "Troubled Paradise" CD, Ho`okena "Cool Elevation" CD, R.R. - Miloli`i ( fine twist or small swirling) was a fishing village renowned for its sennit that may have been named for an expert sennit twister who once lived there. This mele immortalizes the miraculous events caused by the magnitude 7.0 plus earthquake and destructive tsunami that struck the village in 1868. Written and oral history about and from Miloli`i confirm there was no loss of life, missing children were led to safety in caves and rescued 5 days later, and Hau`oli Ka Mana`o Church was lifted by the water and moved inland with little or no damage. The kapuna from other South Kona communities joined the village in thanksgiving, at the `aha `aina kai, lasting several days. The transpositional words epitomize an old style of haku mele that is lost.

There's Kauwalu Gulch on Oahu... North Shore, I think.

wrong island
Are you talking about Kauwalu Valley (Gulch) on Oahu near Pupukea, then? There is a Kauwalu on the Keanae Peninsula on Maui, too.

Here's another one: Piihanahale
