HAWAIIAN

Historical Overview

After being first settled by Polynesian long-distance navigators sometime between 300–800 CE, a unique culture developed in Hawaii and the other islands as a social system with religious leaders and a ruling class organized a substantial population.
The four biggest islands, Hawai?i island, Maui, Kaua?i and O?ahu were generally ruled by their own Ali?i ?aimoku, high chiefs (also called king, local king). Under them, subordinate district ali?i controlled their petty fiefs. All these dynasties were interrelated. They all regarded native Hawaiian people (and possibly all humans) as descendants of legendary parents, W?kea (symbolizing the air) and his wife Papa (symbolizing the earth). During the late eighteenth century, the kingdom of the island of Hawai?i fragmented into several independent chiefdoms. Internecine warfare between them became common. There apparently was no longer an ali?i ?aimoku controlling the island.

There were many ancient Hawaiian battles and wars prior to western contact in 1792, some of which might be mythical. Some in this era include :
  • The War of the Oahuan Succession. (15th century)
  • Second Oahuan Revolution/Battle between Lelepaua and Kapuaikaula -(15th century)
  • Ambush of Waikiki. (15th century)
  • Waialua and Koolauloa's wars. (15th century)
Conflicts under Kualii in the 17th century
  • Battle of Kawaluna. (17th century)
  • Raid of Hilo. (17th century)
  • Battle of Moomomi. (17th century)

Tactics

A truly massive army which to be honest is one of the main strong points
  • The mass of spears screened by hordes of light foot is a potent combination.
  • It will be quite frightening for your opponent when you put down 24 battle groups with four of these being superior and the rest average.
  • The army is also surprisingly mobile with up to 8 units of skirmishers slowing down the opponents mounted and other stuff you do not like.
