8. Hookolo. Hookolo i ka nui manu o kakou. NOTE— In former times no common person was allowed to approach a high chief to ask a favor or deprecate his displeasure except on his hands and knees. See kolo. Also, when one was called to account for some delinquency, he was expected to come into the presence of the chief on all fours, and lie prostrate until ordered to look up; hence, in modern times, hookolokolo, to call to account; to have a trial; to try judicially. See hookolo and hookolokolo.
