NOTE (from D.Kekoolani): Kekaulike took his grandaughter Kahawalu as one of his wives. Kahawalu is the daughter of Kahekili II, son of Kekaulike. From King Kekaulike, the wahine Kahawalu had issue, the High Chief Kauhiaimokuakama, who is the ancestor of William Pitt Kalanimoku (Kalaimoku) and other important chiefs of Hawaii Nei.

He had the following children:

  F i Naaiakalani 1.

The genealogy of this family states that the father is Kekaulike and the mother is Kekuiapoiwanui. It is incorrect. All the children of that union are known. They are among the most well-known chiefs of all of Hawaiian history. There is no proof or corroborating genealogy for this claim.

The father might be Kekaulike, since the ruling chiefs had many wives (chiefs and commoners) and many children. But the mother cannot be Kekuipoiwanui.

His brother Koalaukane, and his uncle Kamohomoho, and a noted warrior chief named Kapakahili, were also sent off as his aids and counsellors.

Kauakahiakua (Kauakahiakua I, Kauakahiakua-o-Lono, Kauakahiakuanui) [Parents] 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9 was born in 1762 in Alika, South Kona District, Hawaii, Hawaii. He married Kekuiapoiwa (Kekuaipoiwa I, Kekuiapoiwa Nui , Kalani-kauhihiwakama Wanakapu).

KA NUPEPA KUOKOA November 21, 1919
HALA IA PUA ALII KAMEHAMEHA This Kamehameha Chiefly Offspring Is Gone (Moses Keaulana)

Moses Keaulana was born in Koleaka, Honolulu, in 1876; he had reached the age of 43 and more. Here is his genealogy. Kamehameha the Conqueror is the one who married Kauhilanimaka and was born Kahiwa Kanekapolei**. Kauhilanimaka (w.), she is the true sister-in-law of Kanekapolei I, wife of Kamehameha I, with her brother, that is Kalamakuikeao, second husband of Kauhilanimaka and thus was this daughter called by the name Kanekapolei.

Kahiwa Kanekapolei married Kahaaualani and was born Kalamakuikeao Kaahiki.

** Kahiwa Kanekapolei is also the mother of Kepelino, the writer.

Kekuiapoiwa (Kekuaipoiwa I, Kekuiapoiwa Nui , Kalani-kauhihiwakama Wanakapu) [Parents] 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, 11. married Kauakahiakua (Kauakahiakua I, Kauakahiakua-o-Lono, Kauakahiakuanui).

FULL NAME: Keōua Kalanikupuapaʻikalaninui Ahilapalapa

NOTES ON KEAOUA by D.P.KEKOOLANI

The genealogist SLK Peleioholani's accounts of the Keaouakalanikupuapaikalaninui are at odds with commonly traditions. He puts forth the following controversial information:

(1) Keōua Kalanikupuapaʻikalaninui is not the biological father of Kamehameha Paiea (the Great). The true biological father of Kamehameha being Kahekili II, King of Maui. This is not a controversial idea and it is gaining more acceptance over time. The more radical aspect of this teaching is the additional notion that Kekuipowa II, wife of Keōua, is also not Kamehameha's natural mother (see below).

(2) Keōua is not the son of Keeaumoku-Nui, but Kalaninuiamamao. His mother remains Kamakaimoku, who was married to both men.

ENGLISH:
Kalaninuiamamao (k) married Kamakaimoku (w) and was born Kalaniopuu (k) King of Hawaii, Ka'u, Puna, and Kona, and was born Keaouakalanikupuapaikalaninui (k), father of Kamehameha I, but Kamehameha was not by him; Keaoua was married for seven years to his chiefly wife, but he did not have a child so Keaweaheulu (k), Kameeiamoku (k), Kamanawa (k) got Kahekiliahumanu (k), King of Maui, to come to Hawaii where Kekuiapoiwa was living and in this mating had that child, a famous conqueror, the seeker of chiefs, leader of the chiefs and in that did the chiefs increase.

[Also, later in this genealogy]

ENGLISH:
Keaouakalanikupuapaikalaninui (k) married Kekuiapoiwa II, chief of Kona, Hawaii, no issue.

[And finally]
ENGLISH:
Look at Kuhooheiheipahu (w) and Kahekili (k), they being the true chiefly parents of Kamehameha I, Kalanikupule (k), and Koalaukani (k).

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
In this same JOHN ENA genealogy, we see that Peleioholani understands that Keaou is still Kamehameha's "father" in the sense that he was the head of the family to which Kamehameha belonged. Kamehameha was given (hanai) to Keaou and his wife by Kahekili and Ku. This kind of child-giving was common practise among the chiefs and was a kind of bonding ritual between chiefly families:
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

ENGLISH:
Look at the chief Kalaniopuu (k), he is the own grandson of Umiulaikaahumanu (w) (true chiefly class) and Kuanuuanu (k) of Waianae, Oahu. Look closely at Kalaninuiiamamao, the own father of Kalaniopuu (k). A high chief. And here are the chiefly descendants that are seen in the broad daylight.:
Look at Kalaniopuu (k) and his
2. Younger brother Keoua (k), father of Kamehameha I.
3. Sister Kekaulikeikawekiuonalani (w), grandmother of L. M. kekupuohi.
4. Sister Kahiwaokalani (w). Grandmother of the Princes.

Kaopuiki,

Kalola married her own brother Kamehamehanui, ruler of Maui in the "Niau Pio" custom of Hawaiian royalty.

S.L.LK. calls her Kalola Kekuipoiwa in the genealogy of the Robinson family.

From genealogist Solomon Lehuanui Kalaniomaiheilu Peleioholani (in Ancestry of John Liwai Ena):
Look at Kekaulike (k), Kekaulikeokalanikuihonoikamoku (k), King of Maui.
Here are the children:
1. Kauhiaimokuakama (k)
2. Kamehamehanui (k)
3. Ka(ola (w), mother of Kiwalao and Liliha
4. Kuhoohiehie (w) (also spelled Kuhooheihei).

9. Kaeokulani (k), Kingof Kauai
10. Manuhaaipo (w), Queen of lao
11. Ahia
12. Nahulanui [*]

Look at No. 2 and no. 3, the ancestor of Kaikioewa Palekaluhi, S. L. Kalaniomaiheuila (k), M. Kahai, and many others. This is the first generation after Kalola (w) and Kamehameha [Nui]; Liholiho Kamehameha II, this is the second generation of Kalola (w).
(
V). Naahienaena I.* [* She is more commonly known as Nahienaena, the sister of Kamehameha III, Kalanikauikeaouli. This spelling is more grammatically correct, as the name means "The Raging Fires."]

Look at Constitutional King, Kauikeaouli (k), Kamehameha III. There are a large number of descendants of Kalola (w) and Kamehameha Nui.

From genealogist Solomon Lehuanui Kalaniomaiheilu Peleioholani (in Ancestry of John Liwai Ena):

Keiki 1 - Kamehamehanui (k), King of Maui
Keiki 2 - Kalola (w)
Keiki 3 - Kuhooheiheipahu (w)
Keiki 4 - Kahekili (k), King of Maui

Look at Kamehameha nui (k) and Kalola (w); they are the own parents of Kalanikauiokikilo Kalaniwaiakua Kekumanomanookekapu (w), the chiefess of Maui whose head is held high in the daytime.

They had the following children:

  F i Liliha Kekuiapoiwa (Kekuiapoiwa III) was born in 1746. She died about 1815.

Kalaniopu'u (Kaleiopu'u, Kalaninuieiwakamokukalaniopuu) (Ruling Chief of Ka'u, Puna, Kona) [Parents] 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, 11, 12 died in Apr 1782 in Waioahukini, Kau. He married 13 Kalola Pupuka-o-Honokawailani (Kalola Nui) (Kalola Kekuipoiwa).

Mu'olehua (Mulehu),
Kalanikumaikiekie (Ahia, Ahia Ka-lani-ku-mai-ki'eki'e),
Kaiahua,
Kekupuohi (Kekupuohe, Kekuohi),

S.L.K. Peleiuoholani call Kalaniopu'u, the mo'i (king) of Hawaii but also lists out the specific areas he controlled absolutely as ruling chief: Ka'u, Puna, Kona. This is acknowledgment of the historical fact that other chiefly families controled the districts of Kohala (the Mahi family), Hilo and Hamakua (the powerful 'I family).

From genealogist Solomon Lehuanui Kalaniomaiheilu Peleioholani (in Ancestry of John Liwai Ena):

Look at Kalaninuiiamamao (k); he was the own father of King Kalaniopuu (k) and his children.

The chief Keouakuahuula (k), true ancestor through the mother of Keouakuahuula, namely Kanekapolei (w), of W. Notley, C. K. Notley, K. 0. Notley, M. Notley, all of Waimea, Hawaii.

Look at the chief Kalaniopuu (k), he is the own grandson of Umiulaikaahumanu (w) (true chiefly class) and Kuanuuanu (k) of Waianae, Oahu. Look closely at Kalaninuiiamamao, the own father of Kalaniopuu (k). A high chief. And here are the chiefly descendants that are seen in the broad daylight.

Look at Kalaniopuu (k) and his
2. Younger brother Keoua (k), father of Kamehameha I.

KU is also called KAUWAHINE, KU-ALI'I and KU-WAHINE
______________________________________________________

Ku pi'o married her brother Kahekili. She is sometimes called "Kauwahine" in the genealogies, when she appears as the wife of Kahekili.

S.L.K. Peleioholani refers to Kuhooheiheipahu, sister and wife of Kahekili II by two names:

* "Kuhooheiheipahu" (in Ancestry of John Liwai Ena)
* "Kauwahine" (Robinson Family Genealogy)

Robinson Family Genealogy:
(Genealogy Table)
* Female Line = Kauwahine
* Male Line = Kahekili
* Issues = Kalanikupule (King of Oahu and Maui), Koalaukane (k.)

"The Ancestry of John Liwai Ena":
Look at Kuhooheiheipahu (w) and Kahekili (k), they being the true chiefly parents of Kamehameha I, Kalanikupule (k), and Koalaukani (k).

A. Fornander discusses "Kauwahine":

Kahekili had two wives : (1) Kauwahine, of the Kaupo Koo and Kaiuli chief families. Her children were-Kalanikupule and Koalaukani, already referred to, and two daughters, Kailikauoha and Kalola; the former becanie the wife of UlumeheiheiHoopilikane (son of Kameeiamoku) and mother of Liliha, the princely and popular wife of governor Boki of Oahu after the death of Kamehameha I. ; of the latter daughter, Kalola, nothing is known with certainty. (2.) Luahiwa, daughter of Kekaulike and his Mololokai wife Kane-a-Lae, and thus a half-sister to Kahekili. With her Kahekili had a son, Kahekilinuiahunu, also frequently called Manonokauakapekulani.

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
She is called "Ku-ali'i" in the Koakanu Family Genealogy.
----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

One of the wives of Kalaniulumoku (I) was Ku-ali'i. This is obviously his aunt Ku (Kuhooheiheipahu, Kauwahine, Kuali'i I).


--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
KU is BIRTH MOTHER OF KAMEHAMEHA THE GREAT
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Above we see S.L.K. Peleiholani assert that Ku is the wife of Kahekili and that together they are the true birth parents (biological parents) of Kamehameha the Great.

But later, S.L.K. Peleiholani says something in different in another work:

(Genealogy Table)
* Female Line = Kekuipoiwa II
* Male Line = Kahekili
* Issues = Kamehameha the Great

In the Robinson Family Genealogy (above), which was written 5 years after the John Liwai Ena genealogy, we that SLK Peleioholani has retreated from his assertion that Kamehameha was the ninaupio son of Ku and Kahekili. This was no doubt due to political pressures. But this softened version of an alternate Kamehameha birth is still controversial in that it retains Kahekili as the biological father rather than Keaoua.

In general, Kuhooheiheipahu ("Ku") is a sketchy figure in the genealogies. There is no doubt that she did exist and was a full blooded sister of Kahekili. But several major genealogies leave her name off the register completelt, with no explanation or mention. I believe this was part of the general effort to direct attention away from the actual facts of Kamehameha the Great's birth, which is understandable and to some degree probably wise politically.

At some point, it looks like pressure was applied to S.L.K. Peleioholani to adjust his genealogies. As time goes on, we do see his lists changing to conform to someone's wishes, perhaps his own daughter Annie's, who was a socialite and a friend of Queen Liluokalani and Bernice Bishop.

There are major changes to the Maui genealogies in SLK Peleioholani's later works, when he is very old kupuna and daughter Annie is probably very much in charge of things. We see unexplainable contradictions to his teachings from earlier in his life, at the height of his career. By coincidence, these changes were also convenient to the Queen and Bernice Bishop. In particular, the removal of "barbaric" pi'o (inter-family) marriages from the lists of recent generations is a glaring transformation to the genealogies, especially of Maui.

The Robinson Family genealogy, which is still an excellent work, is a case study in S.L.K. Peleiohlani's teachings being conformed to social needs. The Robinsons were leading lights of Honolulu society. All possible traces of the embaressing Kamehameha controversy or of the ("barbaric", "backward", "disgusting") pi'o marriages in the family background of socialite Bernice Pauahi Bishop have been again removed.

We must go back to review Peleioholani's classic genealogy masterypice, his Ancestry of John Ena and also his "Story of Kamehameha" realize how fully his later works have been compromised, for whatever reason.

The mother is of Kalanikupule is sometimes given as Kauwahine.

FORNANDER:

"Kalanikupule departed for Maui, accompanied by his aunt, Kalola, the widow of Kalaniopuu, and by her new husband, Kaopuiki; by her daughters, Kekuiapoiwa Liliha, widow of Kiwalao, and Kalanikauikikilo; and by her granddaughter, Keopuolani. His brother Koalaukane, and his uncle Kamohomoho, and a noted warrior chief named Kapakahili, were also sent off as his aids and counsellors."

"Kalanikupule, his brother Koalaukani, Kamohomoho, and some other chiefs escaped over the mountain and made their way to Oahu. Kalaniakua, Kekuiapoiwa Liliha, and her daughter Keopuolani, crossed over to Olowalu, where they joined their mother, Kalola, and after a hurried preparation they all left for Molokai, and took up their residence with Kekuelilcenui at Kalamaula."
  F ii Kailikauoha.
  F iii Kalola (Kalola-o-Kahekili).The parent relationship has been challenged.

One of two ninaupi'o female children for Kahekili II and Ku, rarely mentioned in the genealogies (probably due to the controversies surrounding the male offspring). If they are truly offspring, these are Maui royal females of the highest possible rank. We need more information (D. Kekoolani, JAN 2010).

* "Kuhooheiheipahu" (in Ancestry of John Liwai Ena)
* "Kauwahine" (Robinson Family Genealogy)

From Ancestry of John Liwai Ena:

Other genealogies also refer to a "Kauwahine" wife of Kahekili and give other children as the issue. We have these in our database as "Challenged" issue of mother Kauwahine, since we they are not named as issue of Kauwahine (Ku) by SLK Peleioholani.

KALANIULUMOKU (I) KILLED IN BATTLE (from FORNANDER)

"Kalaniulumoku, the son of Kamehamehanui and nephew of Kahekili, took the part of the Oahu chiefs, and was supported by Kaiana, Namakeha, Nahiolea, and Kaneoneo, the grandson of Peleioholani. Their struggle was unsuccessful, and only added to the long list of the illustrious slain. Kalaniulumoku was driven over the Pali of Olomana and killed; Kaneoneo was killed at Maunakapu, as one descends to Moanalua; Kaiana, Nahiolea, and Namakeha escaped to Kauai. A number of chiefesses of the highest rank--" Kapumoe "--were killed, mutilated, or otherwise severely afflicted."

"The Complete Ancestry of John Liwai Kalniopuuikapali-o-Molilele-ma-wai-o-Ahukini-Kau-Hawaii Ena":

Kalaninuiamamao (k) married Kamakaimoku (w) and was born Kalaniopuu (k) King of Hawaii, Ka'u, Puna, and Kona, and was born Keaouakalanikupuapaikalaninui (k), father of Kamehameha I, but Kamehameha was not by him; Keaoua was married for seven years to his chiefly wife, but he did not have a child so Keaweaheulu (k), Kameeiamoku (k), Kamanawa (k) got Kahekiliahumanu (k), King of Maui, to come to Hawaii where Kekuiapoiwa was living and in this mating had that child, a famous conqueror, the seeker of chiefs, leader of the chiefs and in that did the chiefs increase.

In this same genealogy, Solomon says the mother of Kamehameha the Conqueror in Kekupoiwa II. The contradiction is never explained by him - see below

SLK Peleioholani says in "The Ancestry of John Liwai Ena":
Look at Kuhooheiheipahu (w) and Kahekili (k), they being the true chiefly parents of Kamehameha I, Kalanikupule (k), and Koalaukani (k).

Luahiwa (Luahiwa III, Ahia, Ka'ulahoa, Ka-'ula-hoa) (Molokai Chiefess) [Parents] 1, 2, 3, 4.(Molokai married 5 Kahekili (II) (Kahekilinuiahumanu III) (Mo'i, Ruler of Maui).

Married her half-brother Kumuko'a.

They had the following children:

  M i Manonoikauokapekulani (Manono, Manono-kau-a-kape-kulani, Manono-a-Kahekili).
  M ii Kahekilinuiahumanu (Kahekilinuiahumanu IV) 1, 2, 3 died in Kokoiki, Kohala.

From genealogist Solomon Lehuanui Kalaniomaiheilu Peleioholani (in Ancestry of John Liwai Ena):
Look at Manonoikauakapekulani (k), Kahekilinuiahumanu (k), Kaunohoikapelakapuokakae (w), chiefess of east Maui; by Kahekili himself these children issued forth in the world.

Forander incorrectly states that Manonoikauakapekulani and Kahekilinuiahumanu are the same person.

KILLED IN BATTLE / PLACED ON ALTER OF HEIAU
From genealogist Solomon Lehuanui Kalaniomaiheilu Peleioholani (in Ancestry of John Liwai Ena):

Look at Manonoikauakapekulani (k) while on Hawaii and Kalanimoku (k) who lived under the young chief Kiwalao circling Hawaii, who lived and married and many were the chiefly offsprings of chief Manono (k) who died on the battlefield at Keawewai, Kohala, Hawaii, and placed on the (altar) at the heiau of Mookini in Kohala, Hawaii.

Look at Kahekilinuiahumu (k), killed in the battlefield in Kokoiki, Kohala and placed on the altar at the heiau of Mookini by Kamehameha I.

Look at and understand the three important chiefs who died and were placed on the altar at Kohala, Hawaii: 1. Keaouakuahuula at Puukohola, own son of Kalaniopuu (k). 2. Manonoikauakapekulani (k) of Maui. 3. Kahekilinuiahumanu (k) of Maui. 4. The own children of Kahekili (k), King of Maui, that is the full history of their death.
  F iii Kaunoho (Kaunoho II, Ka'unohoikapelakapuokakae, Kaunoho-a-Kahekili) (Chiefess of East Maui) 1.
