Description
As a part of a state-wide program designed to protect, restore, and further the public benefit of significant Hawaiian natural resources making up three existing Natural Area Reserves, and one reserve, all on the island of Hawaii, Ms. Lisa Hadway, Natural Area Specialist for the State of Hawaii Department of Land and Natural Resources-Division of Forestry and Wildlife (DLNR-DOFAW), requested that Kumu Pono Associates LLC conduct detailed historical-archival research that would describe the traditional-cultural and historical setting of lands within existing, or proposed Natural Area Reserves on the Island of Hawaii. This component of the study discusses several ahupuaa that contribute to the land area of the Puu o Umi Natural Area Reserve situated on the Kohala-Hamakua mountains, Island of Hawaii (Figure 1). The Puu o Umi Natural Area Reserve (NAR) is generally set within the upper reaches of the ili of Puukapu, which belongs to the larger land of Waimea, though it also includes the upper portions of neighboring watershed forests of other ahupuaa in both Kohala and Hamakua. The NAR was once a part of the Kohala Forest Reserve, which was established by Governor's Proclamation on April 25, 1903, and include nearly 17,000 acres of critical forest and watershed land. On July 9, 1987, Governor's Executive Order No. 3367, established the Puu o Umi NAR, consisting of some 10,000 acres, comprised of land that was formerly a part of the Kohala Forest Reserve. The NAR takes it's name from Puu o Umi, literally, the Hill-of-Umi, the summit of which is situated 5,260 feet above sea level. Though no specific tradition was found to describe the origin of the name, it is likely that the naming of Puu o Umi is associated with the reign of the King, Umi-a-Liloa, who ruled the island of Hawaii in the 1500s, and for whom many sites—from mountain to shore—in the Kohala-Hamakua region are named.
