Kuamoo Battlefield and Lekeleke Burial Grounds
Kuamoo Battlefield and Lekeleke Burial Grounds Review
In 1819, an estimated 300 Hawaiians were killed on this vast lava field. Their spooky burial mounds are still visible at the south end of Alii Drive (called the "end of the world" by locals). After the death of his father, King Kamehameha, the newly crowned King Liholiho ate at a table with women, breaking the ancient kapu (taboo) system. Chief Kekuaokalani, his cousin and co-heir, held radically different views about religious traditions and unsuccessfully challenged Liholiho's forces in battle here.
