University of Hawai'i Press

This chapter examines the impact of the Mahele and Kuleana Act on landholding in Hā'ena. It first explains how Hā'ena was awarded to Abner Pākī, a powerful ali'i closely allied with the Kamehameha family, by virtue of Mahele 1848. It then discusses Pākī's appointment of Kekela, a close relative, as konohiki of Hā'ena. It also considers how maka'āinana can receive an award of land under the Kuleana Act of 1850; selling of ahupua'a to groups of maka'āinana who organized hui kū'ai 'āina (cooperatives to buy land) as a means to raise the cash necessary to purchase lands being offered for sale; and the kinds of hardships faced by maka'āinana as they adjusted to the new property regime.

Keywords:   landholding, Hā'ena, Abner Pākī, Mahele, Kekela, maka'āinana, Kuleana Act, ahupua'a, hui kū'ai 'āina
