Latest Heiau News

Aloha Kākou!

About Us - This web site has been created to communicate the on-going progress and activities of the Keau Kukui `Ula heiau as it evolves into the future. It shares the heiau's historic significance, its use, and information relevant to the preservation of Hawaiian Culture.

Mission Statement: The Historic Preservation Site Committee (HPSC/Hui) seeks to manage, preserve, collect, and interpret the cultural resources of the Keau Kukui `Ula Heiau.

The Keau Kukui `Ula Heiau is located within the Pualani Estates at Kona subdivision, below the town of Holualoa. The historic cultural preservation plan was established between the State of Hawai`i, Hawai`i County, Pualani Estates of Kona, and residents of Hawai`i Island. Pualani Estates, as the Community Curatorship Organization, is proud to be a partner in the preservation of this sacred Hawaiian treasure. Without the agreement between the State and Community, Pualani Estates would not exist as it does today. We are one of a handful of developments on the Big Island to be fortunate--and privileged--to have an open-space heiau as well as a Hawaiian cultural treasure.

The heiau grounds (including its perimeter) is under on-going restoration. Access to the site may be requested by contacting the heiau's Hui. The site is off-limits to unauthorized persons. Violators are subject to Chapter 6E-11, Hawai`i Revised Statutes. Questions? Contact us.
