The area of Waialua, located near Schofield Barracks on the Wahiawa Plateau, is home to many sites of significant importance to native Hawaiians, including Kukaniloko, where many of Oahu's chiefs were born. Today, the royal birthsite is marked by 180 stones, including remnants of heiau (temples) and birthing stones, covering approximately 0.5 acres.
