Did You Know?
Did you know that the area east of the Keone'ele Cove known as Kauwalomālie was the location of a historic and fateful meeting, in 1782, between Kamehameha and his cousin Kīwala‘ō? At the time, Kīwala'ō was the ruling heir to the kingdom following the death of his father Kalani'ōpu‘u. According to traditional accounts, it was during an awa ceremony when Kīwala'ō passed the awa prepared by Kamehameha to one of his favorite chiefs, instead of honoring Kamehameha with the first drink. This event set the stage for the power struggle that ensued between them.
