Waipi'o Valley Mule drawn wagon, Sacred Hawaii
Photos of the ancient lands of Hawaii where the Kings met and the land flourished. It remains unchanged. Over time people feel protected here. There have been as many as 4000 living there. Recently 400 lived there until the Tsunami in 1946. No one died. Now about 50 live there with no water, sewer, electric, cellphones etc.
A few centuries ago there was a severe drought and this valley fed the island. It is rich in fruits, vegetables, fish and prawns.
It is a special place.
I visited it in mule drawn cart.
