Ewa & Kanaloa Marking Boundaries with Stones
- Ewa: This town on Oahu is located west of Pearl Harbor
and is used when giving directions on the island. Legends
say when surveying Oahu the gods Kane and Kanaloa would
mark a boundary by throwing a stone. Where the stone fell
would be the boundary line. The stone they threw to mark
the district of Ewa was not found, it strayed. Ewa in
Hawaiian means "stray".
