I don't see Kona mentioned much here





A very poignant moment in history and of shifting in how the Hawaiian people were allowed to practice their beliefs.
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kuamoo_Burials

Kekuaokalani and his wife Manono were among the dead, after he had fallen she had rushed into the battlefield and taken up his place in the fight dressed in his battle garb, the troops seeing that their chief was still fighting, carried on the fight to no avail.
The temples were deconstructed soon after this and the idols (Tiki) were burned, except for the ones that were spirited away and hidden by the remaining followers of the old religion.
This chant and an accompanying Hula are devoted to Manono.
