Arch on Lanai Coast Rolled Canvas Prints

Arch on Lanai Coast Rolled Canvas Prints L?na?i was under the control of nearby Maui before recorded history. Its first inhabitants may have arrived as late as the 15th century. The name Lanai is of uncertain origin, but the island has historically been called Lanai o Kaulu??au, which can be rendered in English as "day of the conquest of Kauluaau." This epithet refers to the legend of a Mauian prince who was banished to L?na?i for some of his wild pranks at his father's court in L?hain?. The island was reportedly haunted by Akua-ino, ghosts and goblins. Kauluaau chased them away and brought peace and order to the island and regained his father's favor as a consequence. The first people to migrate here, most likely from Maui and Moloka?i, probably established fishing villages along the coast initially but later branched out into the interior where they raised taro in the fertile volcanic soil. During most of those times, the Mo?i of Maui held dominion over L?na?i, but generally left the people of L?nai alone. L?nai was first seen by Europeans on February 25, 1779, when Captain Charles Clerke sighted the island from aboard James Cook's HMS Resolution. Clerke had taken command of the ship after Cook was killed at Kealakekua Bay on February 14 and was leaving the islands for the North Pacific. By the 1870s, Walter M. Gibson had acquired most of the land on the island for ranching. Prior to this he had used it as a Mormon colony. In 1899, his daughter and son-in-law formed Maunalei Sugar Company, headquartered in Keomuku, on the windward coast downstream from Maunalei Valley. The company failed in 1901. Many Native Hawaiians continued to live along the less arid windward coast, supporting themselves by ranching and fishing.
