Lakona


Lakona

Lakona was the 5th Alii Aimoku of Oahu. During his reign Oahu was divided among the descendants of Maweke, a legendary figure and the blue blood alii from which the Northern royal bloodline came forth from. Lakona is usually confused with "Laakona" (sometimes spelled Lakona), son of Keaunui and the progneitor of the Ewa race of chiefs from which High Chief Elani of okinaEwa is descended from.

On Oahu, at the close of the migratory period after the depature of Laamaikahiki, the island was split between Queen Maelo and King Kaulaulaokalani. The former, with her husband, Lauli-a-Laa, ruled Kona side, while Kaulaulaokalani ruled over the Koolau side.

These comtemporaries of Lakona, Maelo and Kaulaulaokalni were both sixth from Maweke, and Lakona was also sixth from Maweke, on the Mulielealii-Kumuhonua line being descendant of Kumuhonua, 1st Alii Aimoku of Oahu. Lakona ruled over Ewa, Waianae, and Waialua districts. From him descended the dignity of Moi of Oahu. His successor was Kapae-a-Lakona whose relation to Lakona could be father, grandfather or great-grandfather; as the historians are unsure. Tradition is scanty as to the exploits of the Oahu Mois and chieftains, until Hākā, Lakona's descendant.

The name of his wife is remembered in Hawaiian geneaology as Alaikauakoko who at one time or another was also the wife of Kanipahu of Hawaii. Their son was Kapae.
