Abstract: The community of Mililani in Waipiʻo, ʻEwa, Oʻahu holds a beautiful heritage and identity unknown to many. A history of sacred lands including Kūkaniloko, Kīpapa, and Oʻahunui give this place its foundation in the center of Oʻahu. Significant figures including Māʻilikūkahi and Ioane "John" Papa ʻĪʻī paved the way for the many people of Waipiʻo who cultivated the rich resources. The story of Mililani is a prime example of the changes in Hawaiʻi over time. The erasure of the past in this land was majorly caused by developments now housing thousands of Oʻahu's population. A planned development should not mean a total disregard for what existed in the past, slowly removing the Kānaka Maoli sense of place. The Mililani community and all residents of Waipiʻo must understand the heritage of their home and recognize its importance in Hawaiʻi.
