Southernmost point in Hawaiʻi

Ka Lae (“the point”) in the district of Kaʻū on Hawaiʻi island was home for a while to a family of unique character. They braved the rugged conditions and wild weather and lived without modern conveniences so that they could care for and monitor the historical and sacred sites of the area. Eventually they were evicted by the Dept. of Hawaiian Homelands. Ka Lae now lies abandoned, without people, the voices of laughing children mere echoes.
