Moku`ula island was a traditional center of power in Hawaii.

In the early nineteenth century, Lahaina, Maui was the capital of the Hawaiian kingdom. From the tiny island of Moku`ula, surrounded by a large fishpond in Lahaina, kings chose to rule their vast island nation. This is a story of that sacred place, which was also the home of a powerful protector deity, the lizard goddess Kihawahine. This is a story how Western contact and its imposed changes were inscribed on the traditional patterns of Native Hawaiian governance, religion, and society.
