Welcome to Halawa Valley


As late as the mid-19th century, the fertile valley still had a population of about 500 and produced most of Molokaʻi's taro, as well as many of its melons, gourds and fruits. However, taro production came to an abrupt end in 1946, when a massive tsunami swept up the Halawa Valley, wiping out the farms and much of the community. A second tsunami washed the valley clean in 1957. Only a few families now remain.
