The stone sits exactly on the center of the island of Oahu.Kukaniloko meaning 'to anchor the cry from within' (Ku = to anchor ; kana = to cry out ; loko = womb) birthstone : this site is sacred to the Hawaiian people. As many as 800 years ago, chiefs and chiefesses came here for the birth of their children. A child born at Kukaniloko was assured high-ranking status.

A breathtaking special place where ancestors await and time stands still.
