  • Oh my heavens!It's been months trying to find their identity and how they both are related.Thank you so much.

  • The program, entitled "No Kahikilaulani ka makani Ho'eo 'o Moanalua" (The whistling wind of Moanalua is Kahikilaulani) references Kahikilaulani, who sailed to the Hawaiian islands from a far away place. It is said that she sailed up a stream into the valley and presented her future husband, Kamawaelualani with a gift of an 'ohi'a growing from the earth wrapped in a ti leaf. Perched on the 'ohi'a was a large black honeycreeper, the now extinct O'ahu Creeper ('o'o).

    The 3,716 acre valleys narrowly escaped destruction as a potential corridor for the H-3 freeway, and have been under threat of residential development for two decades. At the blessing and dedication ceremony, the community, descendants of Hawaiians who resided in and cared for the valleys, public officials, the landowner/seller, and non-profit conservation organizations involved in the acquisition and protection of the valleys, will celebrate the dedication of land to the future generations of the people of Hawai'i in perpetuity.

    Kumu Roddy Akau from the Kamawaelualani/Kahikilaulani 'Ohana said, "We are grateful that Kamana Nui and Kamana Iki Valleys have been protected for future generations. Our 'Ohana have been guardians of this land since time immemorial. We trace our genealogy to Namakahelu Kapahikauaokamehameha, the chantress of this land, and descendant of Kapahikauaokamehameha." (literal translation: the battle sword of Kamehameha; said to have been a child descended from King Kakuhiewa whom Kamehameha laid his sword next to while resting after the battles of Nu'uanu and Kahuiki in 1795, thus bestowing honor on the child and his family).
