By Kekauleleanae'ole Kawai'ae'a

Illustrated by Aaron Kawai'ae'a

When a prophecy proclaims that the unborn Kamehameha would grow to overshadow the ruling chiefs, his life from birth is in danger. Nae‘ole races with the helpless infant across the Kohala district of Hawai‘i Island to bring Kamehameha to safety.

Three generations of the Kawai‘ae‘a family join together to give us this unique look at place names of the Kohala area and the important events that shaped Hawaiian history. The first printing of Kohala Kuamo‘o: Nae‘ole’s Race to Save a King commemorates the 200-year anniversary of Kamehameha’s unification of the Hawaiian Islands under one rule in 1810.

Watch the animated story on Lau Nehenehe now playing on ʻŌiwi TV and on Youtube!
