NOTES FOR HELEIPAWA (D.Kekoolani)

Some say that KAPAWA and HELEIPAWA are the same person. According to S.L.K. Peleioholani and others, a certain Kapawa that is supposed to precede Heleipawa in other genealogies is the same person as Heleipawa. The article published in Kumu Hawaii (1835), one of our earliest accounts of Hawaiian genealogy in newsprint, agrees with SLK Peleioholani.

From Tales of People of Old (S.M. Kamakau): Samuel Kamakau says that Kapawa was the first to be born at the sacred stobe Kukaniloko and the first to interned at the cave Ka-pela-kapu-o-Kaka'e in the 'Iao Valley in Wailuku, Maui. He also says Heleipawa is his son.

We have left an alternate record in our database that shows Heleipawa as Kapawa's son.

NOTES FOR KAPAWA (D.Kekoolani)

KAPAWA and HELEIPAWA are the same person. According to S.L.K. Peleioholani and others, a certain Kapawa that is supposed to precede Heleipawa in other genealogies is the same person as Heleipawa. The article published in Kumu Hawaii (1835), one of our earliest accounts of Hawaiian genealogy in newsprint, agrees with SLK Peleioholani.

From Tales of People of Old (S.M. Kamakau): Samuel Kamakau says that Kapawa [Heleipawa - D.K.] was the first to be born at the sacred stobe Kukaniloko and the first to interned at the cave Ka-pela-kapu-o-Kaka'e in the 'Iao Valley in Wailuku, Maui. He also says Heleipawa is his son.

Other marriages:
Hina-'ai-ka-malama (Hina-hanai-a-ka-malama, Lono-muku),

Aikanaka or Aikane are the names given by genealogist Solomon Peleioholani.

---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Most genealogies say that Hina-ai-ka-malama is the mother of Hema and Puna-i-mua. S.L.K. Peleioholani teaches that ancient tradition that Aikanaka married his sister Hinaaikamalama (Hinahanaiakamalama) ("Niau Pi'o" chiefly marriage) and then his daughter from that marriage, Hinawaikolii (a "Naha" or "Ho'i" chiefly marriage). AIkanaka had a daughter by Hina-ai-ka-malama named Hina-waikoli'a. He married this daughter. That is another kind of chiefly "pi'o" narriage (tha father and daughter). This daughter Hinawaikolii is the true mother of Hema and Puna-i-mua.

This teaching is from the Robinson Family genealogy.

  M i Hema was born about 782.

S.M. Kamakau give us her 3 different names: (1) Hina-'ai-ka-malama (2) Hina-hanai-a-ka-malama (3) Lono-muku

ABOUT THE NAME KAHAI (KAHA'I)

The original chief named Kahai was a famous explorer who traveled to Kahiki very early in the history of the Hawaiian chiefs. He was a hero to the Hawaiian chiefs and many of them called their sons by his name. So there are many chiefs whose names begin with or contain the name "Kahai".

But there are five chiefs who are known primarily as just "Kahai", beginning with the original Kahai. I have numbered these Kahai chiefs in the correct order by the time period in which they lived, based on their generational distance from Wakea, ancestor of all the chiefs. The name "Kahai" is often expressed "Kahai-moelea", being similar in relation to "John" and "Jonathan", and would "Kahai-moelea" be interchangeable with "Kahai" for all 5 of these chiefs.

The chiefs named Kahai are:

(1) KAHAI (I) "Kahai-a-Hema" was the son of Hema (k.) and Hinamaikehoa (Ulamakehoa, Luamahekoa) w.). Original Kahai who traveled to Kahiki. He is 31 generations from Wakea.

(2) KAHAI (II) "Kahai-a-Ho'onali'i" was the son of Ho'okamali'i (k.) and Keahiula (w.). He is 34 generations from Wakea and not closely related to the original Kahai before him, being his 18th cousin. The people of his time would have known of the original Kahai in living memory. This Kahai is from Kauai and his grandfather Moikeha was also voyaging chief like the original Kahai. Moikeha would have lived at about the same time as the original Kahai as well.

(3) KAHAI (III) "Kahai-a-Mano" was one of the sons of Manokalanipo (Mo'i, Ruling Chief of Kauai). He is 52 generations from Wakea. He is not closely related to the previous Kahai II, being his 18th cousin, 19 times removed. He is more closely related to the original Kahai I, being from the same family lineage, being this original Kahai's 1st cousin, 19 times removed.

(4) KAHAI (IV) called "Kahaimoeleaikaaikupou" or "Kahaimoeleaikaaikapukupou" was the son of Kalapana (Kalapana Kuioiomoa) (k.) and Makeamakaimalanahae (Maemalamaihanai) (w.). He is 60 generations from Wakea. His relation to the previous Kahai III is very, very distant (22nd cousins, 8 times removed). However, he is a direct descendant of the original Kahai (Kahai-a-Hema), being his 27th great grandson.

(5) KAHAI (V) "Kahai-a-Keeaumoku", was the son of the original Keeaumoku Nui (Keeaumoku I) and the grandson of King Kekaulikeikekahialiiokamokamoku. He is 73 generations from Wakea. He is from the same family lineage as the original Kahai, being his 1st cousin, 33 times removed.
