Kāhili: Ceremonial fly brush
Lit: Fly Brush
An ahupua`a of Ko`olau district, between Kilauea and Waiakalua.
At the time of the Mahele, there were claims for a large number of loko, fishponds, instead of lo`i. Noni and oranges were being grown as cash crops.
#The kahili was the mark of royalty and was carried by those in attendance to the High Chief or Chiefess. Feathers were tied together in small bundles, then attached to a highly polished stick of some precious wood. The wood and pattern of feathers indicated the rank of the ali`i.
*The Menehune moved a big stone to the shore of Kahili from which they used to dive. [Akina]
