I a not a native speaker but had one for a teacher who told me that while lua is still used, the preferred term was lumi ho'opaupilikia because Hawaiians had advanced past the times when they had to relieve themselves in a "hole" in the ground/outhouse.

I agree with commentator. Lua is way off base!
