This small sign marks the entrance to one of the oldest known religious sites on Moloka’i and the second largest heiau in the Hawaiian Islands. Built in the 1300s as a school for kahuna, Ili’ili’opae was also a place for worshipping the god of war, Ku, and Lono, the god of peace, agriculture, and fertility. Human or animal sacrifices were usually dedicated to Ku, which means this heiau was likely the final resting place for many ancient Hawaiians. Think: Temple of Doom.

“Throw your dreams into space like a kite, and you do not know what it will bring back, a new life, a new friend, a new love, a new country.” -Anaïs Nin

I hope that I will always be able to call to mind the wonder on Caleb’s face as the wind carried his kite higher above the red sands of Dixie Maru beach on Moloka’i’s westernmost shore. At four years of age, our sweet boy has flown kites along Kachemak Bay in Alaska and on two islands in the Hawaiian archipelago. This, by far, is his favorite kite and it’s easy to see why.
