-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------Half-sister of King Kekaulike of Maui.

From Solomon Peleioholani:

Genealogy of the high chiefess Ululani I (w), grandmother of Kaikilanialiiwahineopuna, mother of J. Liwai Ena.

Kalanikumaikiekie (w) niaupio married her brother Keaweikekahimakaoi; born was Mokulanl (k), high chief governing Hilo; Mokulani married Papaikaniaunui (w), wife of Kaulahea. King of Maui; born was Ululaninui (w), who married Keawemauhili (k); born was Keaweokahikona (k), grandfather of S. L. K. Peleioholani, first son.

Ululani (w) married again, to Imakaaeae (k), son of Imakakoloa (k), high chief of Puna, born was Kilinahekeliiokepaalani (k), grandfather of John Liwai Ena.

Ululani married again, to Keaweaheulu (k), chief of Waianae, Oahu, through his grandmother Umiulaikaahumanu's marriage to Kuanuuanu (k) of Waianae, Oahu, and Heulu father of Keaweaheulu (k); by this marriage were born the high chiefly children Naihenui (k) Keouakeahohiwa (w),

ABOUT KEAWEMAUHILI

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 the son Keaweokahikona was of judged to be of sufficiently high rank to marry and sire children with the great Kalanikauiokikilo, 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.

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

ABOUT ULULANI'S MOTHER

Kamakau, like many others, says that Niau (daughter of Kuimeheua) is the mother of Ululani Nui. This contradicts the teaching of S.L.K. Peleioholani that the mother of Ululani is Papaikaniau. We know Peleioholani is correct because this is his family line and Ululani is his great grandmother.

It's easy to see where the mistake came from simply by looking at the names.

Mana‘o Wehewehe: Explanations

ULULANI
Heavenly Inspiration and Growth, Raised to Prominence, A Royal Collection

The high-chiefess Ululani was then staying at Hilo at a place now called Pi‘opi‘o, a place of residence of chiefs from ancient times…When Ululani heard of the arrival of the young chief she emerged from her house and when she saw him ascending, she wailed a chant of remembrance and hospitality, beckoning with her hands to Kamehameha:

Auwē, he mai ho‘i, Auwē,
‘O ‘oe kā ia e Kalaninuimehameha ē
E hea aku ana i ka ‘iwa kïlou moku lā…
[Stephen L. Desha, Kamehameha and His Warrior Kekühaupi‘o, 76-77.]

According to Stephen L. Desha, Kamehameha visited Hilo in about 1780 for the purposes of lifting the Naha Stone and forging an alliance with Keaweokahikona, the son of Keawema‘uhili and Ululani. As described above, Ululani greets Kamehameha with “‘O ‘Oe Ia e Kalaninuimehameha,” the still-remembered oli komo in which the visiting Kamehameha is given the epithet Ka‘iwakīloumoku and offered the hospitality of “a people who love their ali‘i.” Ululani’s epithet for Kamehameha now serves as the name of our Cultural Center and kahua pūnaewele. We further acknowledge our ties to Ululani by giving her name to the opening section of this website – to the section that welcomes you, our chiefly visitors, with a selection of the best and most current of the features we house.

Of the many possible interpretations of the name Ululani, three strike us as especially pertinent to our present effort. Ululani can mean “heavenly inspiration and growth”; it can mean “raised to prominence”; and it can mean “a royal assemblage or collection.” We aim, in this section named Ululani, to raise to prominence a collection of items worthy of chiefly attention, items that will engender inspiration and growth. As the chiefess Ululani offered the hospitality of light, loyalty, refreshment, and spiritual sustenance to Kamehameha, so do we offer our Ululani to you.
