Waimea "The Valley of the Priests" is appropriately named and gained it's title around the year 1090 when Kamapuaa awarded the land to high priest Lono a Wohi. From that time until Western contact and the overturn of the Hawaiian religion the land belonged to the high priests of the Paao line.

 

During the reign of Kahahana, he asked the gods if they approve of him and whether the island of Kauai would surrender if he invaded their shores. A temple was built on this rock at Waimea Bay but when High Priest Kaopulupulu prayed here he received no answer from Kauai. They believed that thoughts are little gods and travel in space and fly freely as soaring birds.
