about

Na Pua Ali'i o Kaua'i presents the stories of Kaua'i's rulers from first settlement to the final rebellion against Kamehameha l's forces in 1824. Only fragments remain of the nearly two-thousand-year history of Kaua'i's inhabitants before the coming of James Cook in 1778. Now scattered in public and private archives and libraries, these pieces of Hawai'i's precontact past were recorded in the nineteenth century. All genealogical references to the Kaua'i ali'i nui (paramount chiefs) have been gathered here and placed in chronological order and are interspersed with legends of great voyages, bitter wars, courageous heroes, and passionate romances that together form a rich and invaluable resource.
