Summary

Two pollen, two phytolith, and twelve protein residue samples were examined from ten

sites in the Kahikinui District of Maui. The Kahikinui District has been described as vegetatively

barren at the time of contact (Kirch and Gilder, 1996:38-40). Pollen and phytolith analyses

focused on identification of plants that may have been exploited by occupants of four of these

sites. Protein residue studies were conducted on artifacts including teeth, bone, and adzes to

identify animals that may have been processed.
