Isn't this more accurately translated as "Her friend is Ka'iulani"?

Both "Her friend is Kaʻiulani" and "Kaʻiulani is her friend" should be accepted by the course.

I put "'O kona hoa iā ka'iulnai" and it was marked as correct with the typo. I'm not sure what the typo supposedly is but I don't think it really is correct, is it?

Wow, that's a wild typo. :) It would be better if it was not marked as correct. Sometimes Duolingo is a bit too lenient in its grading. "Kaʻiulnai" as a typo for "Kaʻiulani" I can see, since the two letters "a" and "n" are switched, but the closest correct answer should be "ʻO kona hoa ʻo Kaʻiulani."
