Lanai in Hawaii's History
Lanai is the sixth-largest of the Hawaiian Islands and the smallest publicly accessible inhabited island in the chain.
Lanai’s inaccessibility gave it a bad reputation among natives, and the island came to be known as haunted by man-eating spirits, which prevented them from traveling to it. In the 1500s, though, Lanai got its first inhabitant: a man named Kauluaau. Kauluaau was banished to the island by his father, who was a chief on the island of Maui. Despite natives believing he would never survive on Lana’i, Kauluaau survived. As a reward, chief Kakaalaneo gave his son control over the island of Lanai. Kauluaau encouraged the people to immigrate from Maui, Molokai, and other Hawaiian Islands. Much like how the rest of Hawaii was inhabited by humans, the first settlers on Lanai set up fishing villages along the shore. It was not long before they started farming and planting taro on the island’s volcanic soil.
