Halekii-Pihana Heiau State Monument
Halekii-Pihana Heiau State Monument Review
Stand here at either of the two heiau (ancient Hawaiian stone platforms once used as places of worship) and imagine the chief of Maui surveying his domain. That's what Kahekili, Maui's last chief, did and so did Kamehameha the Great after he defeated Kahekili's soldiers. Today the view is most instructive. Below, the once-powerful Iao Stream has been sucked dry and boxed in by concrete. The suburban community behind you is all Hawaiian Homelands—property owned solely by native Hawaiians.
