This stone, the larger of two, located on the small lawn in front of the Hilo Public Library is called the Naha Stone. In ancient Hawaii it was used to determine who was a member of the ruling Naha clan. After a baby was born it was placed on the stone and if it remained silent it was a member of the clan. If it cried it was not a member.
Legend says the stone was transported here from Kauai and whoever was able to move it showed a high capacity to be chief. It is said that at age of 30 Kamehameha succeeded in moving the stone.
The smaller of the two stones is the Pinao Stone and is associated with the Pinao Heiau that once occupied the land that the library now occupies.

Good folk lore story, but not much to see here. If you happen to be driving up the street, do stop in, but definitely do not go out of your way to see a chunk of lava rock. It’s everywhere you know!

It was great to see this bit of Hawaiian history. I thought it would be bigger, but was amazing to see.

This stone is located in front of the library in Hilo. It has cultural significance as it has been used to identify Hawaiian royalty.

Heading out of town we came across the Naha Stones in front of the Hilo Library. The Naha Stones are made up of one large volcanic rock weighed between 2.5 and 3.5 tons, that originated from Mount Waialeale on the Hawaiian island of Kauai. It was found on the banks of the Wailua river before being moved via a double canoe to Hilo. The second stone was once one of the entrance pillars of the great temple Pinao. For many years these stones laid undisturbed on the property of a Mr. J. A. Scott covered in underbrush. With the revival of Hawaiian culture, he presented them to the city, who had them moved to behind the old library. With the completion of the new Library in 1952, near the site of the ancient temple of Pinao, it was thought appropriate to make their final resting place there. The stones are very important to the local Naha Clan, and over the years many stories have been told about them. Local legion has it that if you can lift the Naha stone, you will become king of the Hawaiian Islands, but if you try and fail! It’s a nasty death.
Also when a new born baby boy is born, they place him on the stone, if he does not cry out, then he is part of the clan , but if he cries he is banished.
From here it’s just a short walk to St. Joseph Catholic Church, which is also worth a visit on Sunday between services.
Tip: Best to visit here on a Sunday, when the Library is closed, as parking is not a problem then.

This Naha Stone is in front of the Hilo Public Library. This place welcome all ages and families.
Across the street is Kosmic Kones with a food menu. Get some ice cream or a meal deal. Eat.
Before entering the library, look at the Naha Stone and walk in. (If you want more diverse ice cream flavors, there's a vegan ice cream place nearby called Hawaiian Licks).
The library is a good place to rest, read, and think before onward travel and going to the airport. I was able to see a FREE reading program event.
ALSO!
As a non-resident Hawaiian-- I was able to get a temporary Library Card for $10.00 in order to acquire internet access for 3 months.

Es ist zwar nur ein tonnenschwerer Basaltbrocken, aber man sollte ihn gesehen haben, wenn man sich für hawaiianische Geschichte/Sagen interessiert. König Kamehameha I soll ihn zur Erlangung seiner Königswürde bewegt haben.

Many cultures have geologic oddities that they link to their history, this is a piece of Hawaiian legend.

After hearing the story it was interesting to see the size of the stone.

The driver on the Island tour bus drove by it and pointed it out.

A long slab of volcanic rock with some "legendary" back story related to the Hawaiian royal family, and it's now placed in front of the public library.

The stone is set right next to the road, outside the library in Hilo. It's easy to miss. I find the history and legends of Hawaii fascinating, but not everyone in our group agreed. They ran over to the ice cream shop while I read the guide book and took pictures.
