THE CHIEFLY MAUI HERTIAGE OF LILIHA

Liliha was the hanai (adopted) daughter of Hoapili-'ulu-maheihei. Governess of Oahu 1829-1831. Today, she is believed to be his natural daughter. This happens all the time to hanai children and to some degree it is what is supposed to happen.

However, the facts of her genealogy are that she is the daughter of Kalaniulumoku II and Loeau, who were themselves full blooded brother and sister (children of Kalaniulumoku I and his own mother the venrable Kalanikuiokikilo). This makes Liliha a ninaupio child, a chiefess of the highest possible princely rank in the system of Hawaiian chiefs. She is,in fact, one of the last ninaupi'o persons to be born in Hawaii. The only other ninaupio chief to be born this late in Hawaii's history is probably Akaka Kukalani (the daughter of the brother-sister marriage of King Kahahana's son and daughter).

Before Liliha and Akaka Kukalani, the ninaupi'o chiefs were:

* Keopuolani (wife of Kamehameha) - daughter of Kiwalao (Kiwala'o) and Liliha Kekuipoiwa (Kekuipoiwa III), who were full blooded brother and sister, not half blooded as suggested by some genealogies. The fact that she was ninaupi'o is the reason why her husband Kamehameha was required to prostrate fully face down to the ground in her presence.

* Kalanikauiokikilo - daughter of King Kamehamehanui Ailua and his sister Kalola, the children of King Keakaulike. Kalola was also the mother of the above stated Liliha Kekuipoiwa and Kiwala'o.

It is this Kalanikauiokikilo who mated with her own son from her father to give birth Liliha's father and mother, this is the order:
(1) King Kekaulike + Kekuipoiwa Nui (half-brother and sister) = Kamehamehanui and Kalola (son and daughter)
(2) Kamehamehanui + Kalola = Kalanikauiokikilo (ninaupio chiefess)
(3) Kamehamehanui + Kalanikauikikilo (his daughter) = Kalaniulumoku I
(4) Kalaniulumoku I + Kalanikuiokikilo (his mother) = Kalaniulumoku II & Loeau (son and daughter)
(5) Kalaniulumoku II & Loeau = Liliha

We understand now that this is the real reason that Liliha commanded such respect in her lifetime and enjoyed many privileges amd also why her several husbands were of such high rank. Everyone knew that she was only hanai to Hoapili-ulu-maheihei and that in her veins flowed the ninaupio blood of theof the Maui royal family ran through her veins, so she was indulged and forgiven often.

Her true genealogy is the reason why her daughter with Namaile was named "Jane Loeau", after her own true biolical mother "Loeau". Also, this is why Jane Loeau was educated at the Royal School. Liliha's true genealogy is given in two works by noted Hawaiian genealogist S.L.K. Pelioholani.

Keawemauhili complied with the summons of Karnehameha, and sent a large force of men and canoes under command of his own sons Keaweokahikwna, Eleele or Elelule, Koakanu, and his nephew Kalaipaihala."

However, the facts of her genealogy are that she is the daughter of Kalaniulumoku II and Loeau, who were themselves full blooded brother and sister (children of Kalaniulumoku I and his own mother the venerable kapu chiefess Kalanikuiokikilo). This makes Liliha a ninaupio child, a chiefess of the highest possible princely rank in the system of Hawaiian chiefs. She is,in fact, one of the last ninaupi'o persons to be born in Hawaii. The only other ninaupio chief to be born this late in Hawaii's history is probably Akaka Kukalani (the daughter of the brother-sister marriage of King Kahahana's son and daughter).

Before Liliha and Akaka Kukalani, the ninaupi'o chiefs were:

* Keopuolani (wife of Kamehameha) - daughter of Kiwalao (Kiwala'o) and Liliha Kekuipoiwa (Kekuipoiwa III), who were full blooded brother and sister, not half blooded as suggested by some genealogies. The fact that she was ninaupi'o is the reason why her husband Kamehameha was required to prostrate fully face down to the ground in her presence.

* Kalanikauiokikilo - daughter of King Kamehamehanui Ailua and his sister Kalola, the children of King Keakaulike. Kalola was also the mother of the above stated Liliha Kekuipoiwa and Kiwala'o.

It is this Kalanikauiokikilo who mated with her own son from her father to give birth Liliha's father and mother, this is the order:
(1) King Kekaulike + Kekuipoiwa Nui (half-brother and sister) = Kamehamehanui and Kalola (son and daughter)
(2) Kamehamehanui + Kalola = Kalanikauiokikilo (ninaupio chiefess)
(3) Kamehamehanui + Kalanikauikikilo (his daughter) = Kalaniulumoku I
(4) Kalaniulumoku I + Kalanikuiokikilo (his mother) = Kalaniulumoku II & Loeau (son and daughter)
(5) Kalaniulumoku II & Loeau = Liliha
