This chapter is a series of photographic essays, which document destroyed heiau (places of worship) on O‘ahu. Visually, these photographs foreground the places we see every day—Waikīkī resorts, freeways, public schools, military bases, and residential areas—that cover over sacred sites. The inscribed photographs shown in this chapter, in turn, literally write over those accounts of development to call attention to the historical processes by which the land was and continues to be colonized by haole as the chapter reclaims the significance of these heiau and their histories. The word “haole” is used in reference to “foreigners,” encompassing all foreigners, including Asians.
