Maweke [Parents] 1, 2, 3, 4, 5. married Naiolaukea (Naiolakea).

The ancient ruling family of the Kingdom of Oahu trace their descent to Maweke, a priest who was renowned for his knowledge of black magic and sorcery. Maweke and his younger sister were not of Hawaiian origin. They came to these islands from Tahiti in the beginning of the 11th century.

Their fleet of canoes landed on Oahu at the spot now called Kaena Point, and there Maweke, the priest, erected a great temple to the God Kanaloa who had sustained him and his retinue throughout their long and hazardous voyage, and who had spared them from the perils of the deep sea.

- KAPIIKAUINAMOKU (Sammy Amalu)


Tradition records that Maweke had three sons, Mulielealii, Keaunui, and Kalehenui, whose lines, with numerous collaterals, have descended to our days. The Kalehenui family appear to have chiefly resided on the Koolau side of the island of Oahu, while the favoured residence and patrimonial estates of the Keaunui family appear to have been in the Ewa, Waianae, and Waialua districts of the same island. The particular district occupied by Mulielealii is not well defined in the legends. As the descendants of one of his sons, Kumuhonua, are found for several generations afterwards in possession of the district of Kona, Oahu, it may be supposed to have been their heritage after the death of Maweke.
