/ Pua-kō / Place Names of Hawaiʻi WahiLocation,

Village, quadrangle, bay, point; land divisions and flume, Kohala and Waipiʻo qds., Hawaiʻi. About 3,000 petroglyph units are in the Kohala area (Cox and Stasack 85). The dog thief, Pupualenalena, lived in one of these places (HM 349–351; For. 4:558–561). Two stones in the sea at an unidentified Puakō in the Kaʻū district would turn over upon the death of a chief. Shortly before the death of Kamehameha they turned completely over, and on the day of his death one of them, Pōhaku-o-kai, was deposited on dry land. On the day Queen Emma died, it was lifted by a wave to the water's edge. Pōhaku-o-kai (stone [from over-] seas) was believed to have come from Kahiki. The other stone was named Pōhaku-o-Hulu. A sharkman lived here, ʻĪwahaʻouʻou (supreme one [with] projecting mouth).
