~The royal birth site of the Ali’i~
The Kukaniloko Birthstones is one of the most significant cultural sites on O’ahu and well known as the royal birth site for the Ali’i. These uplands were not only a place where famous chiefs were born and lived, but where key battles for the control of O’ahu were fought.
By chance, I was invited to shoot here by the community who takes care of this sacred land. When I arrived, I found my self in the company of a monk, who had also come to feel the mana of the site. I quietly minded his space and captured this image when he paused for thought.
