Wai'anae

Wai'anae is the western district of O'ahu, on the leeward coast, from Nanakuli in the south to Keawa'ula in the north. Small streams water the vallue of this coast. "Wai'anae" means "Water of the Mullet." Offshore of the valleys beneath the Wai'anae Mountains are rich fishing grounds. Maui, the famous god of this land, was a noted fisherman, as was Niho'oleki, whose story appears below.
