Introduction to Halawa, Hawaii
Halawa has a population of 13,891.
Halawa is a CDP (census - designated place) of Honolulu County, which was founded on April 30, 1907. The area is highly sacred to Kanaka Maoli, according to which the Makai or the ocean side at Pearl Harbor is the home of Ka'ahupahau, the shark goddess. Kanaka Maoli also believes that the upland or Mauka side is home to Papahanaumoku or Mother Earth. Though the freeway opened in 1997, many kanaka maoli do not use this road as they believe that it is haunted.
