Trustees of the Office of Hawaiian Affairs are taking up a master plan for more than 500 hundred acres in Wahiawa. The land was acquired six years ago to safeguard a rich cultural resource.


Kukaniloko is known as the birthing stones of the Hawaiian royalty. The most sacred and highest ranking ali’i traveled there to give birth on the large stone formation. But in recent years an encampment of homeless has taken hold in the area. Concern for visitors to the area has become an issue after a recent gunpoint robbery.
