After a centuries-long tradition, only one god-king remains

In ancient times, divine kingship was a fundamental and nearly universal religious and political reality. The gods had created the cosmos, which required their constant sustaining attention.

The twilight of the Hawaiian gods came suddenly

In one sense, it’s quite wrong to say that the ancient Hawaiian religion is dead. In fact, it's undergoing something of a small revival among certain Hawaiians (although how much of this represents genuine religious conviction and how much reflects resurgent pride in ethnic identity and heritage is unclear). Some Hawaiians still gather at the remaining “heiau” or traditional temples to honor their ancestors and their ancestors’ beliefs.
