Hui Kū‘ai ‘Āina o Hā‘ena

(p.103) Chapter Five Hui Kū‘ai ‘Āina o Hā‘ena

University of Hawai'i Press

This chapter focuses on Hui Kū'ai 'Āina o Hā'ena (Hā'ena Cooperative/Company to Purchase Land), one of many hui (organizations, gatherings together of people) formed by the people to buy land in the aftermath of the Mahele and Kuleana Act. The manner in which hui organized themselves, as indicated by the bylaws they drafted to guide the activities of their organizations, is a reflection of their desire to retain some features of the traditional life ways of the ancestors. This chapter first considers the original shareholders of Hui Kū'ai 'Āina o Hā'ena before discussing its purchase of the ahupua'a (land division). It also considers the legal wranglings that led to the partition of hui lands, resulting in the fragmentation of the communally based system that had served the Hawaiian people so well.

Keywords:   land, Hui Kū'ai 'Āina o Hā'ena, Hā'ena, hui, Mahele, Kuleana Act, shareholders, ahupua'a, partition
