Kaʻula Place Names of Hawaiʻi,

Valley and stream, Hāmākua and Mauna Kea qds., Hawaiʻi. Rocky islet (540 feet elevation) 22 miles southwest of Niʻihau. The island is a tuff cone built on the submerged eroded remnant of an ancient shield volcano (Macdonald and Abbott 21, 199, 400, 401). It abounds with seabirds and is said to be named for one—which one is not known. A heiau called Pōhaku-pio (captured stone) is said to have been on the western side. The shark god Kū-hai-moana, a brother of Pele, lived here. The domain of the hero Ka-welo extended from Hanalei to Kaʻula: ʻAi lā ʻoe i ka manu o Kaʻula (For. Sel. 97), you then rule the birds of Kaʻula. (See PE, puaea; PH 177; RC 80.)
