Nā Papani = The Pronouns
au / wau = me
ʻoe = (you) 1 person
ʻolua = (you 2)
ʻoukou (you 3 +) more than two people
lāua = (they 2)
lākou = (they 3+) more than two people
kāua = (you and I)
kākou = (all of us) more than two people
WE (Hawaiians look at we on another level)
It has to do with the person you are talking to and whether or not the (WE) includes them. If the person you are talking to is not part of the (WE), it would be: māua = (us 2, Not you)
mākou = (us 3+, Not you)
(End Time Segment 7:55)
After you watch Video Lesson Time Segment 5:26 to 7:55, it is important to watch the visual lesson of the use of māua and mākou at time segment 8:42 to 15:07. The link is below.
In Hawaiian one looks at (WE) on another level. And it has to do with the person you are talking to and whether or not the (WE) includes them. If the person you are talking to is not part of the (WE), it would be: māua for two, and mākou for more than two instead of kāua and kākou.

The kā is what makes the "us" become the possessive "our". And "they" into "their." To get the possessive, it could be "ke kime o mākou" or "kā mākou kime." Kā indicates the person or group following the kā is a member or "owner." Kā 'oukou kime, if in English syntax, would be "oukou's team." English in fact changes THEY to THEIR (change y to i and add r for possession- our, your, her their). In 'Olelo Hawai'i, kā for A class, and ko for O class, is what changes the word to possessive. We've had prompts of "ko Kimo kaikaina..." Same thing: Kimo's younger brother.
