Ka`ena Point, the westernmost point on O`ahu, is the site of one of the last intact dune ecosystems in the main Hawaiian Islands. Here, beyond the end of the busy roads of O`ahu, is an area known since ancient times as leina a ka`uhane, the leaping place of souls, where the spirits of the recently dead could be reunited with their ancestors.
