"E launa ana kaua ma ka Po'aono?" IS WRONG???

I agree, both should be correct. It is important to emphasize where Hawaiian thinking is different than (American?) English thinking, otherwise we will end up speaking English using Hawaiian words.

Perhaps it's incorrect, because there is no ā in your "kāua" nor ō in your "Pō-aono"??

Just happened to me, too. I'll report.

I agree with your exasperation. Elsewhere launa and hui at both translated as "meet".

Is it not correct to use " i " in place of " ma "? Can someone help?

Yes, you are correct. Next time report by clicking next to the flag icon and then "My answer should be accepted."

Are hui and launa completely interchangeable? or is there a subtle difference between the two?
