Aloha,Tutu Kamehaiku Wahapaa b.Niihau d.Hanapepe,Kauai. By census she was married to my 3rd.grandfather M.Halalu Helela b.1854-1929 Hanapepe,Kauai.Both of them are barried at the Hawai'ian Cemetary salt pond side. Kamehaiku/Kamehaitu had 2 other siblings born Wailua,Kauai. On Ulukau,com hawai'ian news paper will verify her birth. Tutu did not have any children w/tutu Halalu but,help raised my grandfather "Andrew Halalu" Pauole whom was adopted the hawai'ian way in 1897. Tutu Kamehaitu was said to be of high rank knowing that Tutu Halalu was the last Chief to take care of the Hanapepe district. Do research on Wahapaa of Niihau. Hope this helps.
This is my Great-Great Grandmother. She was the last reigning cheifess of Niihau and was the pule writer for both Queens. She was forced off of Niihau by the Robinson Family at Gun Point because she told the family that they could not own land. She retreated to Hanalei, where she raised her family. They later moved to Hanapepe Valley, where my family resides today. Here are the associated family names: Keaweehu, Kauakahi, Kaiakapu, Ching, & Pauole.
Attached is a resume from my Grandfather (oldest of 11, Hanai By Tutu Helela Kamehaitu)
Would love to chat ;) My grandmother was Dora Makakoe Halalu Pauole, married to Isidro Camarillo (Koloa). Her father was Andrew Halalu. Living in Alaska currently, but from Oʻahu.
