Kekoolani Genealogy of the Descendants of the Ruling Chiefs of Hawaii


Laamaikahiki (La'a-mai-Kahiki, La'a) (Mo'i, Ruling Chief of Kauai) [Parents] 1, 2, 3, 4, 5.(Mo'i, married Hoakamaikapuaihelu (Hoaka-mai-kapu'ai-helu, Hoakamaikapuaihele).

Other marriages:
Waolena (Wao-lena),
Manoopupaipai (Mano-'opu-pa'ipa'i, Mano),
Halaula,

La'a was called "La'a-mai-Kahiki" because he came to Hawaii from Kahiki.

Hoakamaikapuaihelu (Hoaka-mai-kapu'ai-helu, Hoakamaikapuaihele) [Parents] 1, 2, 3, 4. married Laamaikahiki (La'a-mai-Kahiki, La'a) (Mo'i, Ruling Chief of Kauai).

FORNANDER:
Laulia-Lau's mother (Hoakanuikapuaihele) was said to be the daughter of Lonokaelu, and that the latter or his ancestors
came from "Wawau" in the southern groups.

They had the following children:

  M i Laulialaa (Lauli-a-La'a, Laulia).

Laulihiwa (La-uli-hiwa, Lani-hewa) [Parents] 1, 2, 3, 4, 5. married Akepamaikalani.

Lani-hewa is the name used by S.M. Kamakau in "Ruling Chiefs of Hawaii'.

Akepamaikalani 1, 2, 3, 4. married Laulihiwa (La-uli-hiwa, Lani-hewa).

They had the following children:

  M i Kauohi (Kahuoi I).

Kauohi (Kahuoi I) [Parents] 1, 2, 3, 4, 5. married Pelea (Palea, Paleawahine).

Pelea (Palea, Paleawahine) 1, 2, 3, 4, 5. married Kauohi (Kahuoi I).

They had the following children:

  M i Puaakahuohi (Puaa'-a-Kahuoi).

Puaakahuohi (Puaa'-a-Kahuoi) [Parents] 1, 2, 3, 4, 5. married Nononui (Nono-nui, Nonenui).

Puaa'-a-Kahuoi is the name used by S.M. Kamakau in "Ruling Chiefs of Hawaii'.

Nononui (Nono-nui, Nonenui) 1, 2, 3. married Puaakahuohi (Puaa'-a-Kahuoi).

Nono-nui is the name used by S.M. Kamakau in "Ruling Chiefs of Hawaii'.

They had the following children:

  M i Kukahiaililani.

Kukahiaililani [Parents] 1, 2, 3. married Kokalola.

The Appendix of "Ruling Chiefs" has Kamakau skips this generation entirely and goes straight to Mailikukahi, which is incorrect and contradicts Kamakau's own writings in Ka Nupepa Kuokoa (Newspaper) MAY 4, 1865 "He Mau Olele Mua No Ka Mookuauhau o Kamehameha I". Clearly, the editors of the 1961 revised edition of "Ruling Chiefs of Hawaii" have made a mistake. See more NOTES about this in Mailikukahi.

Kokalola 1, 2, 3. married Kukahiaililani.

They had the following children:

  M i Mailikukahi (Maili-ku-kahi).

Mailikukahi (Maili-ku-kahi) [Parents] 1, 2, 3, 4 was born in Kukaniloko, Kapu'ahu'awa, Oahu, Hawaii. He married 5, 6 Kanepukoa (Kanepukaea).

In "Tales and Traditions of the People of Old" ** , Kamakau says:
"Pua'a-a-Kahuoi was the father and Nononui the mother of Mailikukahi". This contradicts the standard genealogy as taught by many others, including Kamakau himself:

STANDARD GENEALOGY:
(1) Puaakahuohi (Puaakahuoi) + Nononui (Nonenui) = Kukahiaililani
(2) Kukahiaililani + Kokalola = Mailikukahi
(3) Mailikukahi + Kanepukoa (Kanepukaea) = 2 OFFSPRING = [1] Kalonanui (Kalona-nui) [2]Kalona (Kalonaiki, Kalona-iki)
(4) Kalona (Kalonaiki, Kalona-iki) + Kikenui-a-Ewa = Piliwale
* There is a whole generation after Puaakahuohi & Nononui before Mailikukahi

THE ABOVE APPEARS IN THE FOLLOWING:
- S.L.K. Peleiohoolani (ROBINSON FAMILY GENEALOGY, 1908)
- S.M. Kamakau (Ka Nupepa Kuokoa (Newspaper) MAY 4, 1865 "He Mau Olele Mua No Ka Mookuauhau o Kamehameha I")
- Uknown (Ka Nupepa Kuokoa (Newspaper) SEPTEMBER 30, 1893 "He Moolelo Hawaii Chapter X" (A Hawaiian History Chapter 10)

** "Takes and Traditions of the People of Old" is a compliation of newspaper articles printed in 1865 in Ka Nupepa Kuokoa. The excerpt we show is from Ka Nupepa Kuokoa AUG 26, 1865.

Kanepukoa (Kanepukaea) 1, 2, 3, 4. married 5, 6 Mailikukahi (Maili-ku-kahi).

Kanepukaea is the name used by S.M. Kamakau in "Ruling Chiefs of Hawaii'.

PAGE 73 (footnote)

“The high consideration in which the Kaiakea family was formerly held throughout the group may be inferred from the connections it formed by its marriages. Kuikai as stated above married a daughter of Kalanipehu; his son Kanehoalani married Kaweloaaikanaka, daughter of Kawelo-peekoa of Kauai. His grandson Kukalanihooluae married Aialei, granddaughter of Ilikileele, of the Liloa-Hakau and Keawe-a-Umi branches of the Hawaii chiefs. Kaiakea himself married Kalani-poo-a-Peleioholani, a daughter of Kukuiaimakalani, who was a daughter of Kualii and own sister to Peleioholani, who died about 8 years before the discovery of the Hawaiian group by Captain Cook. Kaiakea’s son, the grandfather of the author’s wife, was a staunch and personal friend of Kamehameha I, who, referring to the unsettled state of the group, the treachery and anarchy prevailing at the time, remarked that “Kekuelike’s house was the only place he sleep with his malo off”, that is, that he could sleep undressed without fear of violence or treachery. It was to Kekuelike’s place at Kalamaula, Molokai, that the Maui royal family, including Kalola and Keopuolani, afterwards Kamehameha’s wife, fled for refuge after the disastrous battle of Iao in Wailkuku.”

* NOTE: Fornander is a trusted source for information on the Molokai chiefs in that he was married to the great-grandaughter of Kaiakea.


Luaia (Maui Chief) [Parents] 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8.(Maui married 9 Kukaniloko (Kumuhonua Chiefess, Ninaupi'o).

Kukaniloko (Kumuhonua Chiefess, Ninaupi'o) [Parents] 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10.(Kumuhonua married 11 Luaia (Maui Chief).

They had the following children:

  F i Kalanimanuia (Kalanimanuia I, Kalai-manuia, Kalai-maneia) (Ruling Queen of O'ahu).
  M ii Kauwahimakaweo (Kauhimakapaweo, Ka-uhi-maka-paweo) 1.

Kaihiwalua (Ka'ihiwalua, Kaululaau) (Maui Chief) [Parents] 1, 2, 3, 4.(Maui married 5, 6 Kahekilinuiahumanu (Kahekilinuiahumanu I, Kaualua).

Ka'ihiwalua is the name used by Kamakau.

Kahekilinuiahumanu (Kahekilinuiahumanu I, Kaualua) 1, 2, 3. married 4, 5 Kaihiwalua (Ka'ihiwalua, Kaululaau) (Maui Chief).

Other marriages:
Kakaalaneo (Kakaalaneo I, Kakaalaneo-a-Kaulaheanui),

"Kaualua" is the name used for the mother of Luaia by Kamakau in TALES & TRADITIONS OF THE PEOPLE OF OLD (based on Ka Nupepe Kuokoa Sept 9, 1865). Later, in his genealogy list in Ka Nupepe Kuokoa Sept 30, 1865 Kamakau he calls the mother of Luaia "Kahekilinuiahumanu".

Kehekilinuiahumanu is also the mother of Kaihiwalua.

Based on this, we have combined all the various records for "Kaualua" and "Kahekilinuiahumanu (I)" into one identity. We see that if Kaualua (Kahekilinuiahumanu) is the mother of Luaia and Kaihiwalua, then she is BOTH the mother and the wife of Kaihiwalua (who is Luaia's father).

In the Ka Nupepe Kuokoa Sept 9, 1865 newspaper article (also in TALES & TRADITIONS), Kamakau calls Luaia an "ali'i kapu" (sacred kapu chief). This would be supported by the fact that he was the product of a mother-son marriage (a "ho'i" chiefly marriage).
