Keʻoloʻewa-a-Kamauaua was the second Alii Aimoku of Molokai. He reigned as the titular chieftain or King of the island of Molokai. He reigned during the close of the second migratory era. His family descends from Nanaulu, 14th generation descendant of Wakea and they were descendants of the first migration to Hawaii in the 6th century.

He was born the second son of Kamauaua, the 1st King of Molokai and his wife Hinakeha. His elder brother was Kaupeepee and his younger brothers were Haili and Uli-hala-nui.

He and his brothers had been raised from an early age to hate the newly arrived southern chiefs who had gained power over all of the islands with the exception of Molokai who still remain mostly ruled by the native chiefs. His elder brother was considered the heir-apparent but he gave up his birthright to fulfill his dream of exterminating the southern chiefs. So the right to the throne fell on Keoloewa. His brother, Kaupeepee, later was slain by Kana and Nikeu-Kalohe, sons of Hina, queen of Hilo who had eloped to Molokai with his brother.

The incident of his brother did not disturb his reign in any way. Keoloewa was noted as the head and progenitor of numerous powerful families throughout the archipelago whose pedigrees reach up to him and his wife Nuakea. [2] His wife Nuakea was the daughter of Keaunui and granddaughter of Maweke.[ From this marriage the Molokai royal family could trace their lineage to Maweke, the purest chief of the Nanaula line. His daughter Kapau-a-Nuakea succeeded him as the supreme sovereign of Molokai.

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.

  M i Uakaiua (Ua-Kaiua, Onakaina).
