Kolekole Place Names of Hawaiʻi,

  • Gulch, stream, and beach park, Waipiʻo and Mauna Kea qds., Hawaiʻi.
  • Mountains, Mākena qd., Maui.
  • Pass and road from Schofield Barracks through the Waiʻanae Range, Oʻahu. A large stone at the pass on Oʻahu has been called a sacrificial stone, but it was probably never so used; others say the stone represents a woman named Kolekole who guarded the pass; students of lua fighting lay in wait here to practice their skill on travelers. In a battle here Maui forces killed the last of the Oʻahu people who had escaped the massacre at Niuhelewai.

See Puʻukolekole. Literally, raw, scarred. (In one explanation of the name, a woman on the pass saw an apparently blind man approaching; doubting his blindness, she exposed herself. He opened his eyes and exclaimed, A ʻula, kole-kole! Red, raw!)
