Why is "kona hoa hānau" not a choice? The sentence clearly says "HIS cousins"

Sorry - that should be "kona mau hoa hānau"

"ʻAʻole ʻo ia makemake i kona mau hoa hānau" should be accepted. In Hawaiian we sometimes see uses of "nā" or "ka"/"ke" as noun markers in phrases that might be translated more naturally as "his/her ____" in English.
