In all other examples, the sequence for "(subject) does not want (object)"was: 'A'ole makemake (subject ) i (object).
Why in this case does the subject come in between 'A'ole and makemake?

It appears that the word order changes when pronouns are involved.

When the subject is other than a pronoun, the word order is: 'A'ole makemake (subject) i (object)

When the subject is a pronoun, the word order is: 'A'ole (pronoun subject) makemake i (object)
