  • Land points near Kailua, Kona, Hawaiʻi, and farther north in the same district. At one of the points is a rock believed to be a petrified shark, the shark form of a priest (Kalualapauila). When the priest was about to be burned at ʻŌhiki, a legendary hero, Kamiki, prayed to Pele and a terrible storm arose. The priest's shark form was turned to stone as it tried to enter the heiau to save the human form of the priest. One of Pele's sisters, Hiʻiakanoholae (Hiʻiaka living [at the] point), came to live here, making the place sacred and forbidden to Pele. In the story of Punia, the shark Kaiʻaleʻale, who had swallowed Punia, came here and was cut open by the people; Punia came out alive but was bald (For. Sel. 15).
  • Channel (25 miles wide), separating Oʻahu from Molokaʻi.
