rom the time of Kamehameha the Great, the kālaimoku played an integral role in the governance of his kingdom. Kamehameha’s loyal and trusted regent, chief treasure, chief counselor, commander in chief and supreme war leader during his rule was named Hu’eu Kālanimoku, a high chief from Hana, Maui and an uncle to Kamehameha’s wife, Ka’ahumanu. His counsel and leadership aided Kamehameha significantly in successfully ruling a new unified Hawaiian kingdom fusing western practices with traditional Hawaiian customs. Kālanimoku continued to counsel and advise Ka’ahumanu, Kamehameha II, Liholiho and the council of chiefs after the passing of Kamehameha. He played a major role in dividing up the lands among the ali’i, thus the term kalai (carve) moku (island, district).
With respect to and In accordance with this traditional Hawaiian regency role that served our ali’i well, The Kālaimoku Group endeavors to aide and assist today’s leaders and innovators to maximize their own potential and opportunities. By providing the guidance and consultation to strategically manage and to facilitate a variety of projects, The Kālaimoku Group may serve as an invaluable adviser to ensure successful outcomes.
