Kūkaniloko, otherwise known as the Birthing Stones, is a scared place for Native Hawaiians. It has seen ali‘i (high-ranking) children born there and was used as a school for navigation and astronomy purposes.

 

Join us to kokua (help) Kūkaniloko. Learn more about the location from the Lenchanko ‘Ohana (family) who have guarded and cared for the stones for over 45 years.
