Shore, Kalamaʻula, Molokaʻi. In 1920 Congress passed the Hawaiian Homes Commission Act to provide public lands for Hawaiians who were "not less than one-half part of the blood of the races inhabiting the Hawaiian Islands previous to 1778." Provisions were made for a commission to administer the lands, and in 1925 Kalamaʻula became the first Hawaiian homestead subdivision in the islands. Among the first residents there were Marcelus and Emma Kala Dudoit. Fronting their home was a large stone that had a natural etching of a sun and five rays, and it was from this stone called Kalamaʻula that the area took its name. Mrs. Dudoit wrote a song entitled "Kalamaʻula" in honor of her home. The song is now a Hawaiian falsetto standard. Literally, the red torch.
