I'm not sure if there's more than one song named Kulāiwi, but if there is, here's the one by Larry Kimura:

Mai ka pi‘ina a ka lā I Ha‘eha‘e
A i ka mole ‘olu ‘o Lehua
Eia au ko kama ē
He mamo aloha na Hāloa

Hui:
‘O Hawai‘i ku‘u kulāiwi
Mai nā kūpuna mai
‘A‘ohe mea nāna e kū‘ai
I ke ewe o ku‘u mau iwi
E ola au i ku‘u lāhui
He kuleana o ka ‘ōiwi
‘O ka ‘ī ma kāna ‘ōlelo
He Hawai‘i au mau a mau

That is one beautiful song. I haven't listened to it but hope to soon.

He ingoa ōpaki a Riki; he ingoa ōkawa a Ariki.

Riki is an informal name; Ariki is a formal name.

If you haven't heard it, the junior men sang it at the Kamehameha Song Contest:
