La'au Hawai'i Traditional Hawaiian Uses Of Plants- chant from page 23
The Staple Crops, Kalo and 'Uala
May the taro top in our planting hole grow large.
May they grow large that I the planter may live,
The dwellers in the house may live,
That the dependants may live,
That the family may live,
That the visiting stranger may live,
That I (the name of the planter) may live.
'Amama. It is free of tabu.
-from June Gutmanis, Na Pule Kahiko
