Makaha

Historically, Mākaha was an ahupuaʻa, or area of land ruled by chief or king and managed by the members of the ʻaliʻi. At the end of the last century it was taken over by the "Class People" in the Makaha Resorts which of course are different people from the ordinary citizens of the community. Regardless we must take all much of the time. and the population is at about 9000 and it should be at least 10000 by the year 2020.

"There are three types of lies -- lies, damn lies, and statistics.
Be careful out there."


Fortunately Makaha Beach Park can be enjoyed by the locals
and not just for the rich.

There are over 3000 housing units which is not too bad. And the racial makeup is 19% White, 1% African American, 1% Native American, 16% Asian, 22% Pacific Islander, 2% from other races, and 40% from two or more races. Hispanic or Latino of any race were 17% of the population which is higher than most parts of Hawaii.


The beautiful Industrial Park in Makaha. Unfortunately voted down by
the Present Rail Party. Everyone on this entire coast knows that for
the lucky few to work here, it would be Paradise here and now.

The median age is about 30 years which is a pretty young group and about 22% of families were below the poverty line. The Hawaii Department of Education operates the public schools, Makaha Elementary School and Kamaile Elementary School. Another 2000 inhabitants and they will be ready for Makaha Intermediate.

Dancing in Makaha? Nevah happened!
