Kaulaulaokalani (Ka-ʻulaʻula-o-kalani) was a Hawaiian nobleman,[1] who lived on the island of Oahu. He was the High Chief of Koʻolau. Part of his name — o ka lani — means "one of the sky". He was a ruler of Koʻolau, while his relatives Lakona and Maelo ruled over other parts of the island.[2]

He was a son of the Chief Kawalewaleoku[3] and his wife Unaʻula and he succeeded his father, who was considered a deity. Kaulaulaokalani's wife was called Kalua-i-Olowalu,[4] and they had a daughter, Kaimihauoku, who ruled over Koʻolau after her father's death. A grandson of Kaulaulaokalani's was Moku-o-Loe.[5]
