Ko'olaupoko

Ko'olaupoko is the southeastern district of the windward coast O'ahu, from Kualoa in the north to Waimanalo in the south. ("Ko'olau" means "windward"; "poko" means "small"). The lands are well watered by streams; Kane'ohe Bay, with the only barrier reef in Hawai'i, has a protected lagoon known for its abundance of fish and its numerous fishponds, where mullet and milkfish were fattened. The delicious uhu, or parrot fish, is the famous fish of this land, from Kane'ohe Bay to Maunalua Bay. The land section of Kualoa was sacred to the chiefs, and the home of the famous Tahitian voyaging chief La'amaikahiki while he lived in Hawai'i. Kaulu is the most well-known demigod of Ko'olaupoko, similar to Kamapua'a of Ko'olauloa and Maui of Wai'anae.
