Brief History of Waikīkī

Waikīkī means "spouting water," a reference to the rivers and springs that richly flowed from the Koʻolau mountain range and flooded the area with an abundance of fresh water. In the 1400s, Chief Kalamakua designed an irrigation system to take advantage of Waikīkī’s water resources. Fishponds were built and taro patches were planted allowing for a refined system of agriculture. In the 1450s, Waikīkī was established as the governmental center of Oʻahu.

Waikīkī was also the setting for one of Hawaiʻi’s historic battles for the unification of the Hawaiian archipelago between Kamehameha I (supreme chief of Hawaiʻi Island) and Kahekili (supreme chief of Maui, Molokaʻi, Lānaʻi and Kahoʻolawe). In 1794, Kamehameha I arrived from Hawaiʻi Island with a fleet of canoes landing on the beach of Waikīkī. Kamehameha then set out for the Nuʻuanu Pali (cliffs) to take  Oʻahu from Kalanikūpule, son of Kahekili. After a successful battle, the Hawaiian Islands were united under one ruler, King Kamehameha I.

Throughout the 1800s, Waikīkī remained a place of productive agriculture for commoners and residences for the royal families who maintained homes in the area.  The streets in Waikīkī are some of the most historic in Hawaiʻi as the names reveal the stories of particular areas.

The ahupuaʻa (traditional land division) of Kalia, located on the most western end of Waikīkī, was home to the chiefly Paoa family. Duke Kahanamoku, legendary surfer and multiple Olympic gold medalist, was raised in this fishing and ocean-faring family who lived on this land. The Pi‘inaio Stream fed into the ocean there next to where the Hilton Hawaiian Village currently stands, creating a rich reef and offshore area with an abundance of fish, seaweed, and other marine life to feed surrounding families.
