Yes this seems to be an unlikely place to find the gravesite of such a famous American cultural hero. The location is rustic, remote and probably hasn’t changed much since his body was buried here in August of 1974. It is in a yard, under the shade of a Java plum tree, near a limestone coral church, built in 1857. I also like the the fun fact that the tiny church is notable for its window painting of a Polynesian Christ draped in the red-and-yellow feather capes that were reserved for Hawaiʻi’s highest chiefs. Why not? right.
