Thelma Genevieve Parish, a.k.a. Sister Parish, was born in 1918. She descended from prominent families in the history of Hawai‘i, and shared generational ties to the ‘ili of Pu‘uloa in Honouliuli Ahupua‘a.

Retrieving the items from Kuālaka‘i, Nāmakaokapāo‘o then traveled to Hawai‘i:
“He Kaao no Kauilani,” the tradition of Kauilani, spans various islands of the Hawaiian Archipelago. It follows the children of chiefly parents with a godly lineage. The parents of Kauilani and Lepeamoa were Keāhua and Kauhao, both of whose names are commemorated as places in the Mānana-Waimano vicinity of ‘Ewa. Kauhao’s father was Honouliuli and his mother was Kapālama, for whom the lands which bear their names were given. The daughter Lepeamoa was born in a supernatural form, possessed of both nature and human body-forms.
