History:

One of last partially intact ahupuaa on O`ahu, Waimea Valley consists of 1,875 acres and has been a sacred place for more than 700 years of Native Hawaiian history.

Waimea, “The Valley of the Priests,” gained its title around 1090 when the ruler of Oahu awarded the land to the kähuna nui.  Descendants of the high priests lived and cared for much of the Valley until 1886.

As part of a cooperative conservation land purchase, the Office of Hawaiian Affairs acquired the property in 2006. In 2008, Hiipaka LLC was established to manage Waimea Valley and hold the deed.
