In ancient Hawaiian society, the term ali’i denoted “chiefly status”. And the Aliʻi Nui were ruling chiefs (in Hawaiian, nui means grand, great, or supreme. Within the Ali’i Nui there were many levels of chiefs with varying power.
First were the Aliʻi Pio who were product of full blood sibling unions. Famous Pio chiefs were the royal twins, Kameeiamoku and Kamanawa. Next were the Aliʻi Naha who were product of half blood sibling unions, famous Naha chiefs include Keopuolani. After that was the Aliʻi Wohi who were product of marriage of close relatives other than siblings; one famous Wohi chief being Kamehameha I.
