Separate Hale Aloha[edit]

This article kind of jumbles up biographies and the histories of Waineʻe > Waiola, and Hale Aloha. The last deserves its own article, citing Lahaina Restoration Foundation sources, among others. See Lahaina Historic District for more photos and sources. Joel (talk) 22:15, 27 March 2010 (UTC)

Kakauonohi[edit]

Is this Kekauonohinui who died in Honolulu on 2 June 1847 (per Lahaina tombstone) the same as the Kekauonohi who is said to have been born in Lahaina and died on 2 June 1851 and lie buried in the Royal Mausoleum of Hawaii (but who doesn't show up on the List of burials in the Royal Mausoleum of Hawaii)?

Tomb identification[edit]

The central tombstone in the "mountain view" photo is almost certainly that of prominent people whose names I neglected to record and could not match up with cemetery records online. If anyone can id it, please change the caption. Joel (talk) 00:03, 30 March 2010 (UTC)

Ethnocentrism?[edit]

For a few years, temporary structures made from wooden poles with a thatched roof were used.

This sentence sounds like traditional Hawaiian thatched huts were unsuitable as Churches. I believe this should be rewritten. Hawaiians obviously used these structures for their own temples for a thousand years or more. Viriditas (talk) 08:38, 6 January 2012 (UTC)
