Nana-Ula

by Micha F. Lindemans
A pioneer seafarer who led his people from Kahiki (Tahiti) to Hawaii over a thousand years ago. During this voyage of more than 4,000km (2480mi) his bard and astrologer Kama-Hua-Lele recited the epic poems celebrating the history of the ancestor heroes and their odysseys. After his people had settled on the islands, Nana-Ula became the first king of Hawaii. From him descend the kings of Hawaii.
