“This is the mele maʻi of Antone Kaoo, of Waialua and Honolulu. He was a mixture of Cape Verde Portuguese and Hawaiian. He was a fast runner in the days of the monarchy and earned the title of ʻWaialua Horse.’ Later in life he became a hula master and prepared lūʻau for toursists. An industrious man, he worked up to his last illness and death.”
