History :

In ancient times this huge ahupua’a (Hawaiian land division), stretching between the Waianae and Koolau mountain ranges, was called Lihue. It is rich in Hawaiian legend and fact, as it is one of the oldest places on Oahu. Before the islands were united by King Kamehameha I, it was here that the Oahu chiefs trained their armies (the site of Schofield Barracks now) and revered the place of royal births at Kukaniloko (birthing stones site). They liked the cool climate, the lush growth of the mountains and the abundance of wild game and the many birds from which they plucked feathers to make capes for royalty. Later this land was called the Leilehua Plateau and today it is known as the Wahiawa District.
