      FULL NAME: Kalanikauiokikilo Kalaniwaiakua Kekumanomanookekapu

      Kalanikauiokikilo is a person who, like her ancestor, Kalanikauleleaiwi (Queen of Hawa'i Island), appears at several locations as an ancestor in the Kekoolani family tree. She is a multiple ancestor. Therefore, her "mana" is believed to be very strong in the Kekoolani & Peleioholani family bloodline.

      In the genealogies, these are her various names:

      - Kalaniakua
      - Kekumano (Fornander)
      - Kekukamano
      - Kalanikauiokekilo
      - Kalanikikilo
      - Kalanikekilo
      - Kikilo
      - Kekilo
      - Kahakui
      - Kalani Kaumehameha
      - Kaumehameha
      - Kamehameha-wahine
      - Kalani-Kauko'oluaole

      It is said that she committed suicide, rather than marry King Kamehameha the Great.

      She was an extremely sacred kapu high chiefess of Maui. The "pio" daughter of Kamehamehanui (Ruler of Maui) and his royal sister Kalolo (who was also married into and became the mother of the Hawai'i Island royal family). She married her own father, producing a son (Kalaniulumoku I). She then married that son, producing three healthy son/grandsons. One of these, Kalanihelemaiiluna, was the grandfather of Pauahi (Bernice Bishop).


      From genealogist Solomon Lehuanui Kalaniomaiheilu Peleioholani (in Ancestry of John Liwai Ena):

      "Keiki 1 - Kamehamehanui (k), King of Maui
      Keiki 2 - Kalola (w)
      Keiki 3 - Kuhooheiheipahu (w)
      Keiki 4 - Kahekili (k), King of Maui

      Look at Kamehameha nui (k) and Kalola (w); they are the own parents of Kalanikauiokikilo Kalaniwaiakua Kekumanomanookekapu (w), the chiefess of Maui whose head is held high in the daytime."

      [She was ninaupi'o chiefess, the hjighest possible rank of chief, because her parents were full blooded brother and sisters, the father being a ruling chief and himself a niau pi'o son. There was a famous taboo, named after this chiefess (see #6 below).]

      "That is for us to stand in the midday sun when you can speak with a sharp tongue about the descendants of Kaikilanialiiwahineopuna and Kaukalihoano the third standard bearer of Kahoalii, and therefore, we have taken up our banner and kapu stick [insignia]. The islands have been won by us-Hawaii, Maui, Molokai, Oahu, Kauai, and the islands have been united for us; no island remains, not even the kapus. Here are the kapus:
      1. He-iki-holu no Pakaalana
      2. He-iki-alealea no Haleakeawe
      3. He-iki-pua aholehole no Hikiau
      4. He-opeope kau i kahi e
      5. He kukuia i ke awakea
      6. He poohoolewaikala oia o Kalanikauiokikilo Kalaniwaiakua Kekumanomanookekapu (w)
      7. He-ahi-ka mea e manalo ai. "

      Kapolei, Oahu, Hawaii

      Ka Makaainana (newspaper) JULY 27, 1896 "Mookuauhau Ali'i: Na Iwikuamoo o Hawaii Nei Mai Kahiki Mai":
      In this newspaper article we see the difficult to understand alternate name of "Kahakui".
      Also, her son Kalaniulumoku iI s called simply "Kalani".
      Her son Kalaniulumoku II is also known as the High Chief "Namaile" or "Kamaile".


      In the following genealogy of Kahikikala, she is called "Kalani Kaumehameha".

      Mother: Kalani Kaumehameha
      Father: Kalahumoku (Kalahumoku II, Kalahuimoku I)
      Child: Kahikikala (Ruling Chiefess of Hana, Kipahulu and Kaupo)

      High Chief Keoua Kalanikupuapa-i-nui sought this chiefess Kahikikila (daughter of Kaumehameha or Kalanikauiokikilo) for a wife because of her high rank and sacred kapus, which he hoped to acquire for his own offspring.

      FROM History of Keoua Kalanikupuapa-i-nui (By Elizabeth Kekaaniauokalani Kalaninuiohilaukapu Pratt):

      "Comely of person and gracious to all he met, Keoua as he verged toward manhood became an attractive personage. While yet awaiting the fulfilment of the plighted troth of his childhood, rumors of events in Maui royal circles were wafted across the waters of Alenuihaha channel which stirred his ambition. They were of the two beautiful daughters of Kalahumoku and his wife Kalani Kaumehameha. Kalahumoku was the reigning high chief of all Hana including also the districts of Kipahulu and Kaupo, whose decease had just taken place, his eldest daughter Kahikikala assuming the right of successorship in governing his people. Kalahumoku was a lineal descendant of Loe, the great progenitor of Maui's chiefdom, the Piilanis, Kamalalawalu and others, and of the Hana aliis as well.

      This family possessed a wonderful tabu entirely different from, and never known to exist among, any of the other chief families of the Hawaiian group. It was styled "Ka Poo hoolewa i ka La," and inherited from Kaakaualaninui, the grandmother of Kalahumoku. It signified the laying of the head toward the sun's position in the heavens from its rising unto its setting. Days for the observance of this tabu were strictly kept. The only time for recreation during the tabu must be taken from between the setting of the luminary and the dawn of a new day."

      About the kapu which is properly titled "He poohoolewaikala oia o Kalanikauiokikilo Kalaniwaiakua Kekumanomanookekapu"
      (An explaination by Dean Kekoolani)

      The kapu "Ka Poo hoolewa i ka La" mentioned in the above story which is said to have belonged to the chiefess Kahikikala was inherited from the mother's side, the side of chiefess Kalani Kaumehameha, who was also known as Kalanikuaiokikilo. It was not inherited from the father's side, the father's grandmother Kaakaualaninui, as was taught by the knowledgeable chiefess Elizabeth Kekaaniauokalani Kalaninuiohilaukapu Pratt. She is rarely wrong, but in this case we must differ with her. Her book on her chiefly and famous ancestor Keoua Kalanikupuapa-i-nui is quite excellent. She was also a very good friend and relative of this genealogist's great-grandfather Solomon Peleioholani. But the Chiefess Kekaaniauokalani's teaching on this matter is not correct.

      Although the woman Kaakaualaninui was a highly tabued and sacred chiefess of Koolau, O'ahu being a Kumuhonua chiefess of impeccable pedogree, with exceptionally high rank by any island's standards, the kapu "Ka Poo hoolewa i ka La" was not hers. that kapu comes from only one possible place. It came directly from the the Kahihikala's mother Kalani Kaumehameha, who we understand to be the chiefess also named Kalanikauiokikilo . That very special tabu is associated specifically with her, it requires that the sun must always be kept at a certain angle to her head.

      Kalanikauiokikilo was reknown for this very unique kapu. We are taught by the High Chief and genealogist Solomon Lehuanui Kalaniomaiheuila Peleioholani that the proper title for this exceptionally rare and formidable kapu belonging only to the Kalaniakua Kalanikauioiokiilo is "He poohoolewaikala oia o Kalanikauiokikilo Kalaniwaiakua Kekumanomanookekapu". This kapu was a one of the coveted kapus of the kingdom of the islands, won by conquest and also legally inherited by bloodright, obtained by the Kamehamehas and their chiefs. Here are the other kapus of the Hawaiian Kingdom:

      * "He-iki-holu Paakalana"
      * "He-iki-alealea no Haleakeawe"
      * "He-iki-pua aholehole no Hikiau"
      * "He-opeope kau i kahi e"
      * "He kukuia i ke awakea"
      * "He-ahi-ka mea e manalo ai"

      The fact that Kalani Kaumehameha was another name for Kalnikuiokikilo is further verified by the genealogy of the Kuikahi Family of Waipio Valley, Ka'u and Kohala. The Kuikahi family genealogy seerts firmly that Kalani Kaumenameha was the pi'o daughter of Kamenamenanui and his sister Kalola. There was only one such daughter ever from that sacred chiefly union, which was the exalted ninaupio chiefess Kalanikauiokikilo, who because of her exceedingly high rank and status (she was kalani-akua, a"living god", in flesh among humans) she had many many names and was known by many names all over the islands: on Maui, O'ahu, Hawaii, Moloka'i, Lanai and Kauai. .We now know understand that Kalanikauiokikilo also known as Kalani Kaumehameha, being she she was the daughter of King Kamehmehanui Ailua of Maui.

      Finally, please not that there are no contradictory genealogies to this story of Kalani Kaumehameha. So it is should be resolved and accepted by all who understand.

      Haleki'i and Pihana Heiau
      By Lyons Kapi'ioho Naone III

      It is believed that in 1790 Kamehameha I invoked his war god at Pihana after his defeat of Kalanikupuli's forces in Iao Valley(serum 1909:46). After this battle, Kamehameha sent for the Maui chiefess Kalani-Kauko'oluaole, a daughter of Kamehameha Nui, whom he believed had insulted him at Kaupo. Poloahilani, foster-sister of Kalani-Kauko'oluaole, was sent instead and sacrificed by Karnehameha at Pihana. She was the last sacrifice at Pihana.

      Born at Pihana was Keopuolani, a chiefess of divine rank and descendant of the ruling chiefs of Maui and Hawaii. She became the wife of Kamehameha I and mother of Liholiho (Kamehameha II) and Kauikeaouli (Kamehameha III).

      Pihana was demolished by Kalanimakamauali'i and Kauanaulu during Ka'ahumanu's proclamation in 1819 (Stokes, 1916)

      The Wailuku area was a major gathering place and residential site of the Maui high chiefs and those of rank. The area from Waihe'e to Wailuku was the largest continuous area of wet taro cultivation in the Hawaiian Islands (Handy and Handy, 1972:496). To the southeast of Iao Stream, below Pihana Heiau, was Kauahea where warriors dwelt and were trained in war skills. This was a boxing site in the time of Kahekili.


      FORANDER "AN ACCOUNT..." p338

      We learn from Vancouver that at this time Kaheiheimalie, afterwards known as Hoapiliwahine, a younger sister of Kaahumanu, was still the wife of Kamehameha's brother, Kalaimamahu. Vancouver also mentions "a captive daughter of Kahekili," who was then residing at Kamehameha's court. The person referred to was either one of Kahekili's nieces and his sister Kalola's daughters, Kalaniakua or Liliha Kekuiapoiwa, or else Kalola's granddaughter, Keopuolani, which three ladies were brought from Molokai to Hawaii by Kamehameha after the death of Kalola, as related on page 238.

      (NOTE: The captive chiefess is Kalanikauiokikilo, who refused to marry Kamehameha, escaped a death sentence, but remained trapped at his court as a VIP captive. She escaped by committing suicide. - DEAN KEKOOLANI)
