Abundance and Resilience

University of Hawai'i Press

This chapter places the ancient village of Nuʻalolo Kai in context, first by discussing its ecology and its geographical connection to the Nā Pali Coast. It then examines how Nuʻalolo Kai fits within Kauaʻi Island's archaeological chronologies, based on the idea that the earliest occupations date to the fourteenth-century period of expansion. Earlier use may well have occurred and been limited to episodic foraging trips to the Nuʻalolo Kai beachfront. The cultural features of Nuʻalolo Kai and nearby Nuʻalolo ʻĀina are also typical for Kauaʻi during the fifteenth to seventeenth centuries. After analyzing the archaeological features of Nuʻalolo Kai and Nuʻalolo ʻĀina, the chapter describes additional archaeological sites along the Nā Pali Coast.

Keywords:   foraging, Nuʻalolo Kai, ecology, Nā Pali Coast, Kauaʻi Island, Nuʻalolo ʻĀina, archaeological sites
