What's the difference between "ma ka pāʻina" and "i ka pāʻina"? This exercise requires "i". The exercise with feeding kids at the party requires "ma".

For the uses that you mentioned, "i" and "ma" are interchangeable. Both should be accepted now.

"I" and "ma" should be interchangeable from what I have learned.
