Kalokuokamaile inherited his tabu “Ka po’o ho’olewa i ka la” from his mother, it signified the laying of the head towards the sun's position in the heavens from its rising unto its setting. He would always take time out to travel the distance and observe his tabu with his mother, Kahikikala.

This was to draw the chiefs outside of the village to obtain water, leaving them vulnerable to be ambushed, this war was called Kaumupikao. In this war Prince Kalokuokamaile and the other chiefs fought against Kahekili in Kauwiki, where most of the chiefs were slaughtered and only a couple survived.
