Amalu, S. (1956). The Story of Maui Royalty. Retrieved from

When in the , distant yesterday of hawaii?s history, the great navigator and monarch of the hawaiian race, the prince kulani - kuil - hawaiiloa, first brought his people over the wide desert of the sea of kanaloa (the pacific ocean) from the continent of kahiki-ku to found a new domain on these islands, he named the second largest island of the hawaiian group haere tonu, which means “out of the darkness and depths of the sea.” Many centuries were to pass before the people of hawaii were to call this island by the name of maui in honor of maui-loa, the first independent sovereign of that island. Today the name of haere tonu is forgotten; it lives only in the classical chats of ancient hawaii. For almost fourteen centuries following the arrival of hawaii-loa, all of the islands of the hawaiian under a sovereignty of one monarch who was always a direct descendant in the senior line of that first hawaiiloa. Although each of the islands had its own district chifs—some of whom were extremely powerful—yet did all of these chiefs pay homage to and acknowledge the who ruled on the island of hawaii. The at most of those ancient hawaiian kings where they were buried is the sacred valley of the eastern star (iao) on maui. It was not until the death of the prince paumakua that the sovereign authority of hawaii was divided among his three sons.

The Prince Paumakua was the last of the Hawaiin monchs, until the advent of kamehameha the Great, to held sovereignty over all of the Hawaiin islands. paumakua was the 49th lineal descendant of the great Navigator-king Hawaiiloa; he was 108th generation descendant of wakea, the God of light who was the progenitor of Hawaiin royalty.
