While on the big island of Hawaii, Linda, J.R., and I chanced to come across a site known as, The Place of Refuge. The object of war, in those days before the missionaries came to their island, was to exterminate the enemy, which included anyone who belonged to the opposing side. Those too old, too young, or those unable to fight could find safety in the sanctuary. Defeated warriors also came to the “pu’uhonua,” where they could wait in safety until the battle was over. Their allegiance would then be to the victor.
