At the Puʻuhonua o Hōnaunau National Historical Park on Big Island, Hawaii, you learn of the tales of those who have broken the Kapu, also known as sacred laws. Their only chance of survival was a dangerous trek to Puʻuhonua.
It’s a very interesting place to learn of the history of land maybe some 400 years old. For me, thought, the person with the 12 year old alive and well inside of him, I couldn’t resist spotlighting some of the statue carvings that represent typical statues that may have been present at the time of the law breakers.
