“Hale o Lono” is Hawaiian and means “House of Lono.” Lono is one of the four main gods in ancient Hawaii. The other ones are Ku, Kane and Kanaloa.

Human sacrifices didn’t happen here regularly. However, sometimes fish and human offerings were made to ensure a good harvest and fishing season in the coming year.
