Hawaii Luxury Real Estate Kohala : Luxury Big Island
Kohala is the birthplace of King Kamehameha I, who would go on to unite the Hawaiian Islands into the Kingdom of Hawaiʻi. His birthplace, marked by two birthing stones, is next to Moʻokini Heiau, an ancient temple dedicated to the war god Kū. Kohala is home to several significant ancient Hawaiian settlements, including Lapakahi, a 600-year-old fishing village. In ancient times, Kohala’s hills were extensively cultivated by Hawaiians using terraced farming and ditch irrigation systems that brought water from mountain streams to crops like taro, sweet potatoes, and bananas.
The people and landscape of Kohala changed, along with the rest of the island, with contact from the western world in the 18th century. Gradually, plantation farming of commercial crops like sugarcane began to replace traditional Hawaiian agriculture. The native Hawaiian population was decimated by western diseases and migrants began to arrive at work on the plantations. When cattle were introduced in 1793, ranching slowly became an integral part of Kohala’s culture. Mexican cowboys came to Hawaii to train Hawaiian ‘paniolos’ in the art of cattle handling and rodeo. Many ranches were established, including Parker Ranch in Waimea.
