He mea nui e maopopo ai, ʻo ia hoʻi, ua hoʻonoho ʻia ka ʻAha Kūkāmalū e like me ka Hale ʻAhaʻōlelo Aliʻi. Ma hope aku o ka makahiki 1845, ua hoʻokumu ʻia ka ʻAha Kūkāmalū ma lalo o ke kānāwai. Ma ka Paukū 41 o ke Kumukānāwai o ka makahiki 1864, i hoʻoholo ʻia ma hope o ka wā i noho aliʻi ai ʻo Kamehameha V, ua kālele hou ʻia ka manaʻo, he mea pono ka hana a ka ʻAha Kuhina no “for advising the King in all matters for the good of the State . . . and for assisting him in administering the Executive affairs of the Government.” Ma lalo o ka Paukū 42 o ke Kumukānāwai o ka makahiki 1864 i hoʻoholo ʻia ai, e noho ke Kuhina no kō nā ʻAina ʻē, ke Kuhina Kālaiʻāina, ke Kuhina Waiwai, a me ka Loio Kuhina, ma ke ʻano he lālā “ex-officio” o ka ʻAha Kūkāmalū. He mau palapala waiwai nui o kēia waihona no ka hoʻomaopopo ʻana i ka moʻolelo pili kānāwai o Hawaiʻi nei.

Hiki nō ke loaʻa nā kiʻi i loko o kēia waihona ma ke kaomi ʻana o nā loulou waihona ma lalo iho nei.
