Preserve Pu'uiki Cemetery Print E-mail

For over 100 years, Waialua was the rural heart of the North Shore. Families from all different ethnic backgrounds graced the lands over generations. These farmers helped put Hawaii on the modern map with the most delicious sugar and pineapple by working this beautiful and fertile land.

Their blood, sweat and tears built the "circle island" railroad that took employees and sugar from one sugar mill to the other. Their blood, sweat and tears grew the marketable reputation of, "the world's best sugar."

Today, the agricultural companies are no longer and "Plantation Days" are all but forgotten. Forgotten too will be the history and the people who lived it unless Pu'uiki Cemetery is cared for and preserved.

Hawaii graveyard desecrated by off-road racers, vandals, dogs


By Eloise AguiarAdvertiser Staff Writer
Families, individuals and organizations have toiled for 10 years to transform a neglected, weed-filled cemetery in Waialua into the peaceful resting place it was meant to be. But they say vandals are destroying the good work while racing through the graveyard with vehicles, crushing graves and destroying markers.
