Kālua to cook in underground oven, imu.

Puaʻa (Pig /Hog)

Writing in the journal Royal Society Open Science, an international team of researchers argues that Hawaii's hogs, previously thought to have arrived on the islands with English explorer James Cook in 1778, were brought there hundreds of years earlier by Polynesian settlers who would come to live there.

The prompts under the words are confusing and should be fixed so they inform instead of mislead.
