THERE ARE 2 (TWO) DIFFERENT CHIEFESS NAMED "KANEKAPOLEI" We are told clearly by a Poepoe family member in a 1919 newspaper article that there are two Kanekapoleis, one is the wife of Kamehameha the Great, the other is the niece, who is named after the wife of Kamehameha the Great. Today, this is a cause of some slight confusion as many do not remember that there are two different women (same family) named Kanekapolei.

We differentiate them as Kanekapolei I and Kanekapolei II.
