Next stop, Pu'uhonua o Honaunau, a National Historic Park where, since 1961, the National Park Service has maintained this place which was once both Royal Grounds and place of refuge.

Refuge was an important part of cultural life back then and too long for me to tell...I want everyone to read Sarah Vowell's book Unfamiliar Fishes. You won't be sorry, I promise! (Maybe I'll mention this book only a few more times? Maybe.)
