Kekoolani Genealogy of the Descendants of the Ruling Chiefs of Hawaii


Kalaninuiiamamao (Kalani-nui-'i-a-mamao, Ka'i'imamao, Lono-a-Keawe) (Ali'i-o-Ka'u) [Parents] 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, 11, 12.(Ali'i-o-Ka'u) married 13 Kamakaimoku (Ka-maka'i-moku, Kamakamoku) (Waianae Oahu Chiefess).

Other marriages:
Kauhiokeka, (Kekohimoku, Kauhiakeka, Kauhiokaka, Kalanihoaono-o-kahikoloa-o-kekaulike)
Kekaulike-i-Kawekiuonalani (Kekaulike, Kalani-Hoaono-i-Kahikoloa-o-Kekaulike), AI NO
Kailakanoa (Kailakauoa),
Kapaihi-a-Ahu Wahine (Kapa-'ihi-a-Ahu, Kapa-'ihi-a-Ahu Wahine,
Kalanikumaikiekie (Ahia, Ahia Ka-lani-ku-mai-ki'eki'e),
Kaolanialii (Ka-'olani-alii),

"Lono-a-Keawe" is an alternate name/title from Mary Pukui.

This is the chief for whom the famous Kumulipo chant (a mele inoa, or name chant) was recited a birth.

He was the head of the senior Keawe lineage. Through his mother,'s lineage he received various honors and kapus from the islands of Maui and Oahu. He married his full sister Kauhiokeka. He then married his daughter Kekaulike, who was born from that marriage to his sister. The child produced from this marriage to his daughter was the reknown chief Keawemauili whose famous "intertwined kapus" wer produced by his complicated lineage.

He was assasinated by his brother, Ke'eaumoku-nui (head of the junior Keawe line), having had issue.

ABOUT KEAWE
From "The Complete Ancestry of John Liwai Kalniopuuikapali-o-Molilele-ma-wai-o-Ahukini-Kau-Hawaii Ena"
(S.L.K. Pelioholani)
---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

"Look at the chiefly children of Keawe (k), King of Hawaii: (1) Children Kalaninuiiamamao (k), Kekohimoku (w), Keakakauhiwaamoku (k), five children of Molokai, including Kumukoa.

Look at Kalaninuiiamamao (k); he was the own father of King Kalaniopuu (k) and his children.

Kalaninuiamamao (k) married Kamakaimoku (w) and was born Kalaniopuu (k) King of Hawaii, Ka'u, Puna, and Kona, and was born Keaouakalanikupuapaikalaninui (k), father of Kamehameha I, but Kamehameha was not by him; Keaoua was married for seven years to his chiefly wife, but he did not have a child so Keaweaheulu (k), Kameeiamoku (k), Kamanawa (k) got Kahekiliahumanu (k), King of Maui, to come to Hawaii where Kekuiapoiwa was living and in this mating had that child, a famous conqueror, the seeker of chiefs, leader of the chiefs and in that did the chiefs increase.

Kalaninuiamamao (k) hoao niaupio married Kauhiokeka (w), his sister; born was Kekaulikeikawekiuonalani (w), ancestor of S. L. Kalaniomaiheuila Peleioholani (k) and Laura M Kekupuohikapulikoliko (w) and Kahiwaokalani (w), grandmother of the princes D. Kawananakoa and J. Kalanianaole.

Kalaninuiamamao (k) married his own daughter, Kekaulikeikawekiuonaiani (w)- born was Keawemauhili, who was iwiiapuu and iwilakee due to his kapu.

Look at the chief Kalaniopuu (k), he is the own grandson of Umiulaikaahumanu (w) (true chiefly class) and Kuanuuanu (k) of Waianae, Oahu. Look closely at Kalaninuiiamamao, the own father of Kalaniopuu (k). A high chief. And here are the chiefly descendants that are seen in the broad daylight.

Kamakaimoku (Ka-maka'i-moku, Kamakamoku) (Waianae Oahu Chiefess) [Parents] 1, 2, 3, 4, 5 was born in 1711. She married 6 Kalaninuiiamamao (Kalani-nui-'i-a-mamao, Ka'i'imamao, Lono-a-Keawe) (Ali'i-o-Ka'u).

Other marriages:
Alapai (Alapai Nui, Alapainui-a-Kauaua), (Ali'i-o-Kona, Ruling Chief of Hawaii Island)
Keeaumoku (Keeaumoku I, Kalani Kama Keʻeaumoku Nui, Kee-eaumoku),
Kukaeleaiku (Kukeleiaiku, Kukaeleaiku, Kukaeleku, Kukaeleiki, Ku-ka-'ele-iki),

Also Chiefess of K'au.

They had the following children:

  M i Kalaniopu'u (Kaleiopu'u, Kalaninuieiwakamokukalaniopuu) (Ruling Chief of Ka'u, Puna, Kona) died in Apr 1782.
  U ii Kalaninuieiwakamoku (Kahiwaokalani) 1.

This child of Kalaninuiamamao appears in the Ka Nonanona article (1842) only. Does not appear in SLK Peleioholani or other accounts.

This could be the Kahiwaokalani mentioned as a sister of Kalaniopuu by SLK Peleioholani


From genealogist Solomon Lehuanui Kalaniomaiheilu Peleioholani (in Ancestry of John Liwai Ena):
Look at the chief Kalaniopuu (k), he is the own grandson of Umiulaikaahumanu (w) (true chiefly class) and Kuanuuanu (k) of Waianae, Oahu. Look closely at Kalaninuiiamamao, the own father of Kalaniopuu (k). A high chief. And here are the chiefly descendants that are seen in the broad daylight.

Look at Kalaniopuu (k) and his
2. Younger brother Keoua (k), father of Kamehameha I.
3. Sister Kekaulikeikawekiuonalani (w), grandmother of L. M. kekupuohi.
4. Sister Kahiwaokalani (w). Grandmother of the Princes.
5. Sister Ahia (w).
Here is the (wohi) son of Kalaninuiiamamao (k), namely
6. Keawema'uhili (k), he is the own grandfather of
7. S. L. Kalaniomaiheuila Peleioholani (k), own father of
8. A. Kahalelehua Kaonohiulaokalani Notley.***
  M iii Keoua Kalanikupuapa'ikalaninui (Keaoua Kalanikupuapa'ikalaninui) was born in 1734. He died in 1767.

Keawemauhili (Keawemauhili I) (Ali'i-o-Hilo) [Parents] 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8.(Ali'i-o-Hilo) married 9, 10, 11 Ululani (Ululani I, Ululani Nui) (Ali'i-o-Hilo).

Other marriages:
Kalanikauleleiawi (Kalanikauleleiawi II),
Kekikipa'a (Kekikipa'a-a-Kameeiamoku, Nowelo-Kauhi-Kiki-a-Pa'a),

Keawemauhili was joint chief of Hilo with his wife, first wife 'Ululani.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
This chief was the product of a father/daughter "naha" marriage, with the same daughter already being the product of a full brother-full sister "niau pio" marriage. By marrying his own daughter from his own sister, Kalaninuiamamao passed to his son a very high kapu rank, based on his "multiple" or "entwined" kapus. His name means "entwined", referring to his compound lineage and his subsequent high status. The noted genealogist, S.L.K. Peleioholani says Keawemauhili was "iwiiapuu and iwilakee due to his kapu". He was said to be the sacred one of the twisting, turning and doubling back.

(NOTE: We see the same twisting, turning and doubling back in the Maui royal family genealogy occurring at the same time as this same generation. See the lineage of Kamehamehanui Ailuau-to- Kalanikauiokikilo-to-Kalaniulumoku I-to-Kalaniulumoku II and his brothers. By noticing and considering this similarity, we understand why we see the kapu chiefess Kalanikauiokikilo mating with Keawemauhili's son Keaweokahikona. This is also why we see her son Kalaniulumoku II mating with I-kanaka, her daughter of from Keawekahikona. It is a merging and amplification of the two powerful iwiiapuu and iwilakee kapu bloodlines of the chiefs. - Dean P. Kekoolani, Feb. 12, 2010)

From the "Ancestry of John Liwai Ena":

HAWAIIAN:
Kalaninuiamamao (k) hoao i kana kaikamahine ponoi, Kekaulikeikawekiuonaiani (w) hanau o Keawemauhili, iwiiapuu, iwilakee i ke kapu.

ENGLISH:
Kalaninuiamamao (k) married his own daughter, Kekaulikeikawekiuonaiani (w), born was Keawemauhili, who was iwiiapuu and iwilakee due to his kapu.


Keawemauhili was reknown because he possessed many intertwined kapus. His name means "intertwined or knotted". His wife's father Mokulani was a ninau-pio chief (the highest god-like rank for a sacred chief because his mother and father were full-blooded brother and sister).

This is why his son Keaweokahikona was of judged to be of sufficiently high rank to marry and sire children with the great chiefess Kalanikauiokikilo of Maui, the highest ranking sacred ninau-pio chief alive, and the last ever of that rank to live. The next closest ranking chief was her niece Keopulani, wife of Kamehameha the Conqueror and mother of Kamehameha II and Kamehameha III.

ABOUTY HIS SONS WHO FOUGHT FOR KAMEHAMEHA

FORNANDER:
"Certain it is that during the summer of this year (1790), Kamehameha, assuming the style of " Moi" of Hawaii, sent to Keawemauhili of Hilo and Keoua-Kuahuula of Kau to furnish him with canoes and troops for a contemplated invasion of Maui. Keawemauhili complied with the summons of Karnehameha, and sent a large force of men and canoes under command of his

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
ABOUTY HIS CHIEFLY RANK

FORNANDER:
"The result of the battle of Mokuohai was virtually to rend the island of Hawaii into three independent and hostile factions. The district of Kona, Kohala, and portions of Hamakua acknowledged Kamehameha as their sovereign. The remaining portion of Hamakua, the district of Hilo, and a part of Puna, remained true to and acknowledged Keawemauhili as their Moi ; while the lower part of Puna and the district of Kau, the patrimonial estate of Kiwalao, ungrudgingly and cheerfully supported Keoun Kuahuula against the mounting ambition of Kamehameha.

In order to properly understand the political relations and rival pretensions of these three chiefs, and to disillusion oneself from certain impressions obtained from those who in the earlier days wove the history of Kamehameha into legend and song, or from those who in after years kept up the illusion from force of habit or from interested motives, it may be well to " take stock," as it were, of the political capital with which each one supported his claim to supremacy.

Keawemauhili was undoubtedly the highest chief in rank, according to Hawaiian heraldry, of the three. He was the son of Kalaninuiamamao and Kekaulikelikawekiuokalani, the latter being the half-sister of the former and daughter of Kauhiokaka, one of Keaweikekahialiiokamoku's daughters. Hence he was also called Keawe-Wililua."

ABOUT ULULANI'S MOTHER

Kamakau, like many others, says that Niau (daughter of Kuimeheua) is the mother of Ululani Nui. This contradicts the teaching of S.L.K. Peleioholani that the mother of Ululani is Papaikaniau. We know Peleioholani is correct because this is his family line and Ululani is his great grandmother.

It's easy to see where the mistake came from simply by looking at the names.

ULULANI
Heavenly Inspiration and Growth, Raised to Prominence, A Royal Collection

The high-chiefess Ululani was then staying at Hilo at a place now called Pi‘opi‘o, a place of residence of chiefs from ancient times…When Ululani heard of the arrival of the young chief she emerged from her house and when she saw him ascending, she wailed a chant of remembrance and hospitality, beckoning with her hands to Kamehameha:

Auwē, he mai ho‘i, Auwē,
‘O ‘oe kā ia e Kalaninuimehameha ē
E hea aku ana i ka ‘iwa kïlou moku lā…
[Stephen L. Desha, Kamehameha and His Warrior Kekühaupi‘o, 76-77.]

According to Stephen L. Desha, Kamehameha visited Hilo in about 1780 for the purposes of lifting the Naha Stone and forging an alliance with Keaweokahikona, the son of Keawema‘uhili and Ululani. As described above, Ululani greets Kamehameha with “‘O ‘Oe Ia e Kalaninuimehameha,” the still-remembered oli komo in which the visiting Kamehameha is given the epithet Ka‘iwakīloumoku and offered the hospitality of “a people who love their ali‘i.” Ululani’s epithet for Kamehameha now serves as the name of our Cultural Center and kahua pūnaewele. We further acknowledge our ties to Ululani by giving her name to the opening section of this website – to the section that welcomes you, our chiefly visitors, with a selection of the best and most current of the features we house.

Of the many possible interpretations of the name Ululani, three strike us as especially pertinent to our present effort. Ululani can mean “heavenly inspiration and growth”; it can mean “raised to prominence”; and it can mean “a royal assemblage or collection.” We aim, in this section named Ululani, to raise to prominence a collection of items worthy of chiefly attention, items that will engender inspiration and growth. As the chiefess Ululani offered the hospitality of light, loyalty, refreshment, and spiritual sustenance to Kamehameha, so do we offer our Ululani to you.

Unknown

From Solomon Peleioholani:
Ululani (w) married again, to Imakaaeae (k), son of Imakakoloa (k), high chief of Puna, born was Kilinahekeliiokepaalani (k), grandfather of John Liwai Ena.

He had the following children:

Kahakui,
Kawao,
Kealohikiikaupea (Kealohikiikaupea II, Kealohikiikaupea-a-Kahikikala),
Kepo'oloku,

Kalanihelemaiiluna is sometimes called "Kalanihelemaiiluna Paki". This is Bernice Pauhi Bishop's grandfather.

The identity of Kalanihelemaiiluna's mother has been corrupted, degraded or intentionally altered over the years to be the incorrect "Kukamano" in many genealogies. This Kukamano is no longer recognized as being the exact same person as Kalanikauiokikilo Kekumanomanookekapu in these incorrect genealogies. This mistake that also appears in Forander.

Ka Makaainana (newspaper) JULY 20, 1896 is an example of a well-circulated but incorrect genealogy giving the WRONG Father-Mother pair for Kalanihelemailuna.

The identity problem of the mother is associated with the fact that understanding Kalanikauiokikilo Kekumanomanookekapu to be Kalanihelemaiiluna's mother means knowing about the extensive inter-family marriages of the Maui royal family.

Clearly, the family history and genealogy of Berinice Pauhi Bishop, who was probably the richest Hawaiian person in her time, were adjusted to avoid people knowing about the extensive pi'o marriages in the family background of Bernice Bishop (several consecutive and recent generations of immediate family memebers to each other). The practise would have been considered a barbaric and embaressing shame to her among the dominating Amgo-American establishment that had more or less taken cultural control of Hawaii during her lifetime.

Before he died in battle Kalaniulumoku (I) pi'o married his mother Kalanikauiokikilo and children were three healthy sons were concieved: Kalaniulumoku II, Kalanihelemailuna (grandfather of Bernice Bishop), and Peapea Makawalu II.

Kalaniulumoku (I) also married his aunt Manuhaapio (half-sister of his mother and father) having issue with her, the chiefess Kapuaa.

Kalaniulumoku (I) also married aunt Ku (full sister of his mother and father) having issue with her, the chiefess Loeau (Loeau I).

KALANIULUMOKU (I) KILLED IN BATTLE (from FORNANDER)

"Kalaniulumoku, the son of Kamehamehanui and nephew of Kahekili, took the part of the Oahu chiefs, and was supported by Kaiana, Namakeha, Nahiolea, and Kaneoneo, the grandson of Peleioholani. Their struggle was unsuccessful, and only added to the long list of the illustrious slain. Kalaniulumoku was driven over the Pali of Olomana and killed; Kaneoneo was killed at Maunakapu, as one descends to Moanalua; Kaiana, Nahiolea, and Namakeha escaped to Kauai. A number of chiefesses of the highest rank--" Kapumoe "--were killed, mutilated, or otherwise severely afflicted."

WIFE MANUHAAPIO

S.L.K. Peleioholani says Manuhaapio became on of the wives of her nephew Kalaniulumoku II.
Manuhaapio is called "Kalanimanuia" in one newspaper article.

Manuhaapio (Manu-ha'a-pio, Manuailehua, Kalanimanuia II) [Parents] 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7. married 8 Kalaniulumoku (Kalaniulumoku I, Kaulumoku I).

Other marriages:
Manonoikauokapekulani, (Manono, Manono-kau-a-kape-kulani, Manono-a-Kahekili)

Manuhaapio did not marry Kamehameha the Great and give birth to Kalaniulumoku. This is a mistake originating in the Koakanu Family genealogy. The "Kamehameha-nui" being referred to in that genealogy is not Kamehameha the Conqueror, but Kamehamehanui Ailua, KIng of Maui and the namesake uncle of Kamehameha the Great.

Also, the genealogy is incorrect. Manuhaapio did not marry Kamehamehanui Ailua. The text should have read "Kalanikuiokikilo" instead of "Manuhaapio".

So at many levels, this particular genealogical notion (Manuhaapio gave birth to a son for Kamehameha the Great) is wrong and should be dismissed from all genealogies.

There are many wives and many children, many living descendants today, but none from Maui chiefess Manuhaapio.
