Niuhelewai Meaning

Coconut going / carried on water

Niuhelewai  is identified as a place of residence of the goddess, Haumea, and considered by her to be sacred. This is the site of a battle between Haumea and Kaulu and also the site of a later battle in which the forces of O‘ahu and Maui fought; the waters of the stream were turned back, and the stream became damned by the corpses of men. The station also sits in the footprint of Niuhelewai.
