A word known only in the chant called Haui ka lani, (For. 6:368–410); according to Andrews (For. 6:368), an ancient, poetical name for hāʻule which he translates “fallen” but more probably hau, to strike + -i, transitivizer. A more accurate translation of the chant's title is “the chief is struck down.” (Gram. 6.6.4.) A less plausible interpretation is hau i ka lani, offer to the royal chief.
