Kekoolani Genealogy of the Descendants of the Ruling Chiefs of Hawaii


Kuaiwa (Mo'i, Ruler of Hawaii) [Parents] 1, 2, 3, 4, 5 was born about 1516 in the Ulu-Hema Genealogy (Big Island). He married 6 Kamanawa (Kamanawa-a-Kalamea).

Other marriages:
Kamuoleilani (Kamuleilani, Kamuoleilani-o-Kunuiakanaele, Kainuleilani),

Genealogist S.L.K. Peleioholani calls him Mo'i of Hawaii. Half brother of his wife Kamuleilani.

In the marriage to his other wife Kamanawa, we see by counitng generations that Kamawana would have been an older woman and Kuaiwa a very young adult male at the time their son Ehu was concieved. Kamawana would have been of Kuaiwa's grandmothers generation. However, considering the very young age of marriage and reproduction among the Hawaiian chiefs, it would be likely that Kamawana would still have been in her child bearing years when King Kuaiwa reached the age of reproduction (puberty/adolesence), making the pairing a workable proposition.

Kamanawa (Kamanawa-a-Kalamea) [Parents] 1, 2, 3, 4 was born about 1516 in the Ulu-Hema Genealogy (Big Island). She married 5 Kuaiwa (Mo'i, Ruler of Hawaii).

MISTAKE IN Ka Nupepa Kuokoa (Newspaper) SEPT 30, 1893 "He Moolelo Hawaii Chapter X" (A Hawaiian History Chapter 10)
* The genealogy article calls Kamanawaakalamea (Kamanawa) a man, but its a woman.

WRONG (KA NUPEPA KUOKOA):
FATHER: KAMANAWA
MOTHER KUAIWA
CHILD: EHU

CORRECT (TRADITIONAL): FATHER: KUAIWA (KING)
MOTHER: KAMANAWA
CHILD: EHU

The ancestral genealogy of KAMANAWA is the same for both cases above (from KING KANIPAHU), but its clearly known that KAMANAWA was the wife of KING KUAIWA and gave him a son EHU.

KAMANAWA is not a male wife a wife named KUAIWA giving him a son named EHU.

---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
DESCRIPTION OF CHIEFESS KAMANAWA'S GENEALOGY GIVEN BY FORNANDER IS INCORRECT
This chiefess is correctly described by Fornander as being the wife of King Kuaiwa. But he also says she is the "great granddaughter" Hualani (the Ruling Chiefess of Molokai) who was the wife of King Kanipahu, which is incorrect.

Kamanawa (Kamanawaakalamea ) is in fact the descendant of Chiefess Hualani's husband King Kanipahu, but this is through his OTHER wife Alaikauakoko, not Hualani. The correct genealogical sequence is derived from grafting SLK Peleioholani's information in his Robinson Family Genealogy with other genealogies - references are given in footnotes.
