Mākua in moʻolelo

The sacred Mākua Valley, which consists of the ahupuaʻa of Mākua, Kahanahāiki and Koʻiahi, has a history that is as rich and as deep as any place in the Hawaiian archipelago. That history, which included some of the most powerful dieties of the Hawaiian pantheon, was captured in the kind of stories passed down through generations, which still define Mākua and each Hawaiian island.
