Private Tour - The 1819 Battle of Kuamo'O Battle of Religion

Special Offer

Private Tour - The 1819 Battle of Kuamo'O Battle of Religion

In old Hawaii, the kapu system governed all aspects of everyday life in Hawaii from your social status to what you were allowed to eat. Breaking these strict rules often resulted in death. However, there were places throughout the islands known as Puʻuhonua or Cities of Refuge. One of the purposes of the Puʻuhonua was to act as a sanctuary for anyone who had committed a crime, and they would be forgiven. However, that was if they were able to make it to the Puʻuhonua alive. Tensions reached a climax, and war broke out between the ʻAi Noa and ʻAi Kapu factions after Liholiho, Kamehameha II, broke the ʻAi Kapu. The Christians were led by Liholiho and backed by two Queens; Kaʻahumanu and Keōpūolani. The opposing side was led by Kekuaokalani and supported by his wife, the chiefess Manono. The conflict ended after the Battle of Kuamoʻo when Kekuaokalani and Manono were killed.
