This chapter presents the author’s account of returning to Kahikinui nearly thirty years after he spent the summer of 1966 mapping archaeological sites. With thirty years of experience behind him, the author realized that the pioneering settlement-pattern data collected in 1966 would provide a good starting point. But to answer many of the questions swirling in his head required a new research effort, to build on that foundation. They needed to not just recheck the original data but to add substantially to it. There were big gaps in the 1966 survey—a large piece of the uplands of Kīpapa as well as most of the intermediate zone between the uplands and the coastal strip would need to be surveyed. To understand how the ancient Hawaiians had adapted to this lava landscape would require filling in these gaps.
