Stone is very important to the ways of the Hawaiians.   Healing stones, such as the Hauola Stone, were in areas designated as holding powerful forces of nature that stilled the spirit and healed the soul, thus restoring health.   Kahunas (spiritual leaders) used herbs, diet, massage and healing stones to alleviate their patients' ills.   Labor pains were eased by sitting on water-washed stones, and umbilical cords were often buried underneath.

Lahaina HarborA wall has been built over the stone, but this photo shows how clear the water is, even in a busy harbor.
