HEWAHEWA GENEALOGY

* Notes on the sons (Kamokumaia and Nahuawai) and the wives of those sons (Kualii and Kauukualli).

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
THE SONS

The son Nahuawai is called "the only child" in Genealogy No. 5. This differs in Genealogies No. 1 to 4, which do come from a different source and have 4 children.

However, we can posibly resolve this. It is possible that of the 7 children in Genealogies 1 to 4, only 1 of the males had any posterity, this is namely the son called "Kamokumaia". We have no issue for the other males. Two of the females had issue.

But it is easy to see how if the surviving male line was followed exclusively by the descendants of Kamokumaia, with any amount of vaguesness at all regarding the original family of Hewahewanui and his wife, it could become thought of as the only surviving line.

If Kamokumaia was also known as "Nahuawai" by his descendants, then we would end up with the situation where we have Genealogy #5 showing us only 1 child, a male named Nahuwai, mother unknown. The lack of a name for the mother reveals that knowledge was lost concerning the organization of the original immediate family of Hewahewanui himself.

In my opinion, Hewahewanui Genealogies No.1 through No. 4 are far more reliable than Hewahewanui Genealogy No.5 as far as the early generations of the family are concerrned. I also believe that the son called Nahuwai is the same person as the son called Kamokumaia. However, I have not merged these individuals in our database. They have been left as separate individuals, according to the differing Hewahewanui traditions, as these differences may prove important to future genealogists. These are persons who are actual figures of history who lived and interacted with Westerners at the time of Contact. Therefore, the identities of these sons, whether one person or two people, may be clarified and refined by new findings.

THE WIFE OF THE SONS - "KU-ALI'I"

The chiefess Kualii or Kauukualii is treated differentl depending on which of the Hewahewanui Genealogies is being discussed. There are two differing treatmentsof Ku. They are not incompatible but they are markedly disimilar.

In Genealogues 1-4, she is called "Ku-ali'i" and is the wife Kamokumaia, a son of Hewahewanui. In Genealogy 5, she is called "Kauukualii" and is named as the wife of Nahuawai, a different son.

That she is the same woman, there is no doubt. It is very possible that she was indeed the wife to both these sons. It is also possble that Kamokumaia and Nahuawai are the same person being described in two ways, by two traditions. Therefore, we have left her as she is found in the Hewahewanui genealogies, under both her names and associated with both husbands.

As discussed earlier, I also believe that the son called Nahuwai is the same person as the son called Kamokumaia.
