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.

Look at Kalaninuiiamamao (k); he was the own father of King Kalaniopuu (k) and his children.
(I) The eldest son Kiwalao (k);
(II) Second child Liliha Kekuiapoiwa; they are the true grandparents of Lihoiiho I (k), King of Hawaii, grandparent of Naahienaena (w) and grandparent of Kauikeaouli (k) King of Hawaii.
(III). Kalaniopuu (k)/ the true father of Kaleipaihala (k), the grandfather of Kaleleonalani, Queen, and L. M. Kekupuohi, Keawehawaii (k), Halalo (k), and J. Robinson (k).
(IV) Kalaniopuu (k), the father of Keaouakuahuula, the ancestor of the chiefess Kekaaniau (w) of Honolulu, L. M. Kekupuohi and Sam Parker. 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.

OPPOSITION TO KAMEHAMEHA

FORNANDER:
"The result of the battle of Mokuohai was virtually to rend the island of Hawaii into three independent and hostile factions. The district of Kona, Kohala, and portions of Hamakua acknowledged Kamehameha as their sovereign. The remaining portion of Hamakua, the district of Hilo, and a part of Puna, remained true to and acknowledged Keawemauhili as their Moi ; while the lower part of Puna and the district of Kau, the patrimonial estate of Kiwalao, ungrudgingly and cheerfully supported Keoun Kuahuula against the mounting ambition of Kamehameha.

In order to properly understand the political relations and rival pretensions of these three chiefs, and to disillusion oneself from certain impressions obtained from those who in the earlier days wove the history of Kamehameha into legend and song, or from those who in after years kept up the illusion from force of habit or from interested motives, it may be well to " take stock," as it were, of the political capital with which each one supported his claim to supremacy.

Keawemauhili was undoubtedly the highest chief in rank, according to Hawaiian heraldry, of the three. He was the son of Kalaninuiamamao and Kekaulikelikawekiuokalani, the latter being the half-sister of the former and daughter of Kauhiokaka, one of Keaweikekahialiiokamoku's daughters. Hence he was also called Keawe-Wililua."

Luahiwa (Luahiwa IV, Lauhiwa, Luluhiwalani) [Parents] 1, 2. married Keoua Kuahu'ula (Keaouakuahuula, Keaoua-Kuahuula) (Ali'i-o-Ka'u, Ali'i-o-Puna, Ruling Chief of Hawaii Island).


Keoua. married Pualinui (Pu'ali-niu).

Pualinui (Pu'ali-niu) [Parents] 1, 2, 3. married Keoua.

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

"Kalaniopuu (k) married again, to Kamakolunuiokalani (w); born was Pualinui (w)."

"Here is Pualinui (w) an own grandparent for Luluhipolani (k), Punana (w), Kaiheekai (k), Keawehawaii (k), Maiopili (k), Kupakei, and Kaiahua and a great many of the chiefly descendants living. How about it, do you know Hawaii's own?"

They had the following children:

  F i Luahiwa (Luahiwa IV, Lauhiwa, Luluhiwalani).

Kepoomahoe (Ke-po'o-mahoe) [Parents] 1, 2. married 3 Kekaulike-i-Kawekiuonalani (Kekaulike, Kalani-Hoaono-i-Kahikoloa-o-Kekaulike) (Ali'i-o-Hilo, Ninaupi'o).

Kekaulike-i-Kawekiuonalani (Kekaulike, Kalani-Hoaono-i-Kahikoloa-o-Kekaulike) (Ali'i-o-Hilo, Ninaupi'o) [Parents] 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6.(Ali'i-o-Hilo, married 7 Kepoomahoe (Ke-po'o-mahoe).

Other marriages:

Kaleipaihala (Kaleipaihala I, Kaleipaihalanui, Kalaipahala, Ka-la’ i-pai-hala),

She had the following children:

  M i Kumumu.

Keawemauhili (Keawemauhili I) (Ali'i-o-Hilo) [Parents] 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8.(Ali'i-o-Hilo) married Kalanikauleleiawi (Kalanikauleleiawi II).

Other marriages:
Ululani (Ululani I, Ululani Nui), (Ali'i-o-Hilo)
Kekikipa'a (Kekikipa'a-a-Kameeiamoku, Nowelo-Kauhi-Kiki-a-Pa'a),

Keawemauhili was joint chief of Hilo with his wife, first wife 'Ululani.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
This chief was the product of a father/daughter "naha" marriage, with the same daughter already being the product of a full brother-full sister "niau pio" marriage. By marrying his own daughter from his own sister, Kalaninuiamamao passed to his son a very high kapu rank, based on his "multiple" or "entwined" kapus. His name means "entwined", referring to his compound lineage and his subsequent high status. The noted genealogist, S.L.K. Peleioholani says Keawemauhili was "iwiiapuu and iwilakee due to his kapu". He was said to be the sacred one of the twisting, turning and doubling back.

(NOTE: We see the same twisting, turning and doubling back in the Maui royal family genealogy occurring at the same time as this same generation. See the lineage of Kamehamehanui Ailuau-to- Kalanikauiokikilo-to-Kalaniulumoku I-to-Kalaniulumoku II and his brothers. By noticing and considering this similarity, we understand why we see the kapu chiefess Kalanikauiokikilo mating with Keawemauhili's son Keaweokahikona. This is also why we see her son Kalaniulumoku II mating with I-kanaka, her daughter of from Keawekahikona. It is a merging and amplification of the two powerful iwiiapuu and iwilakee kapu bloodlines of the chiefs. - Dean P. Kekoolani, Feb. 12, 2010)

ENGLISH:
Kalaninuiamamao (k) married his own daughter, Kekaulikeikawekiuonaiani (w), born was Keawemauhili, who was iwiiapuu and iwilakee due to his kapu.


Keawemauhili was reknown because he possessed many intertwined kapus. His name means "intertwined or knotted". His wife's father Mokulani was a ninau-pio chief (the highest god-like rank for a sacred chief because his mother and father were full-blooded brother and sister).

This is why his son Keaweokahikona was of judged to be of sufficiently high rank to marry and sire children with the great chiefess Kalanikauiokikilo of Maui, the highest ranking sacred ninau-pio chief alive, and the last ever of that rank to live. The next closest ranking chief was her niece Keopulani, wife of Kamehameha the Conqueror and mother of Kamehameha II and Kamehameha III.
