Laupahoehoe in Hawaiian means “foot of lava.” Thousands of years ago, lava cascaded down a steep canyon on the side of mighty Mauna Kea and created a flat shelf between the towering cliffs of the Hamakua Coast on the eastern shore of the island of Hawaii. Laupahoehoe Point became a ceremonial center of great importance to native Hawaiians as well as the only canoe landing along fifty miles of rugged coast.
