ʻUmi₃  probably the most famous of early chiefs, dated by Fornander (For. 6:324) as thirteen generations before Kalākaua. Allowing twenty-five years to a generation, this would place ʻUmi's time at about A.D. 1550. Beckwith (HM 391) calls the ʻUmi legend 'one of the most popular of all Hawaiian prose sagas of heroes, embellished as it is with many stock episodes but still preserving the thread of historical accuracy. ʻUmi is still famed as a farmer and fisherman.. .. He kept up the worship of the gods and magnified the practice of human sacrifice.' ʻUmi was conceived by Līloa on his travels. He left recognition tokens, which ʻUmi later took to Līloa. The hostile, oppressive older brother, Hākau, with the conniving of a kahuna, was stoned to death, and ʻUmi left his incognito poverty to become ruling chief. (For. Sel. 114-177)
