MAUI

BRIEF HISTORY

Paumakua, the first Alii Aimoku of Maui, was thirty-first in line of descent from Wakea. Twenty-seven kings ruled after him. The 25th Alii Aimoku, Kahekili II, greatly expanded his territories by conquering the neighbouring island of Oahu in 1783. However, his son, Kalanikupule, the 27th Alii Aimoku was destined to be the last of his line. Maui fell to the all-conquering arms of King Kamehama the Great in 1795 and became a part of the kingdom of the Hawaiian Islands.
