The word haole existed before the arrival of Captain Cook. It's a very old word that appears in a story about the demigod Kamapua'a. "He haole nui, maka 'alohilohi." Also, the word does not mean without breath. The word ha'ole is a different word entirely.
He mau haole paha na kanaka e heluhelu nei i ka unuhi a'u i kakau ai.
