King Kahekiliahumanu- Brook Kapukuniahi Parker

King Kahekiliahumanu of Maui enjoying his favorite pastime of “lele kawa” cliff jumping at Ka’anapali, Maui.

His name was short for Kāne-Hekili after the Hawaiian God of Thunder. Because Kāne-Hekili was believed to be black on one side, Kahekili tattooed one side of his body from head to foot.  The legendary King of Maui, Kehekili, is believed to be the true father of King Kamehameha.
