have drawn people to them from the time of the early Hawaiians creating a rich and still vibrant multi-cultural history. The first immigrants to arrive were Polynesians from the Marquesas Islands. They built one of the state’s oldest structures, Kukuipahu Heiau, c. 600, a temple just a short hike south of Puakea.

Turing north for a short hike is the Mo`okini Luakini Heiau that, according to a family chant, was built around 480 AD (perhaps by Hawai`i’s indigenous folk) and was dedicated to the god of war, Ku. It was transformed into a luakini or sacrificial temple in the 11th century by Pa`au, a kahuna-chief who arrived from the Society Island in the second migration to hit the island. Mo`okini Luakini provided the platform for Pa`au to enforce his kapu (taboo) system of governance used by Hawaiian chiefs until 1819. Within site of Mo`okini is Kamehameha Akahi Aina Hanau, the birthplace of Kamehameha the Great, who is said to have been born here in 1758 as Halley’s Comet passed overhead. Kamehameha’s life was an astonishing blend of Moses, King Arthur, and Greek drama. Kamehameha was the first to unite the islands of Hawai`i and rule as king until his death in 1817. A number of surrounding state and national historical sites honor his life, his battles, and the men who served him
