Battling at sea, Kamehameha took on the combined fleets of enemy chiefs from Oahu and Kauai who in 1791 reclaimed Maui and then raided his home island of Hawaii. Here off Waimanu, from the deck of the 54-foot schooner “Fair American”, Kamehameha directs with his sword beneath the raised feathered war god.
