                 Referred to the Committee on Resources


                                 AN ACT

 To amend the National Trails System Act to designate the Ala Kahakai 
                  Trail as a National Historic Trail.

    Be it enacted by the Senate and House of Representatives of the 
United States of America in Congress assembled,


    This Act may be cited as the ``Ala Kahakai National Historic Trail 


    Congress finds that--
            (1) the Ala Kahakai (Trail by the Sea) is an important part 
        of the ancient trail known as the ``Ala Loa'' (the long trail), 
        which circumscribes the island of Hawaii;
            (2) the Ala Loa was the major land route connecting 600 or 
        more communities of the island kingdom of Hawaii from 1400 to 
            (3) the trail is associated with many prehistoric and 
        historic housing areas of the island of Hawaii, nearly all the 
        royal centers, and most of the major temples of the island;
            (4) the use of the Ala Loa is also associated with many 
        rulers of the kingdom of Hawaii, with battlefields and the 
        movement of armies during their reigns, and with annual 
            (5) the use of the trail played a significant part in 
        events that affected Hawaiian history and culture, including--
                    (A) Captain Cook's landing and subsequent death in 
                    (B) Kamehameha I's rise to power and consolidation 
                of the Hawaiian Islands under monarchical rule; and
                    (C) the death of Kamehameha in 1819, followed by 
                the overthrow of the ancient religious system, the 
                Kapu, and the arrival of the first western missionaries 
                in 1820; and
            (6) the trail--
                    (A) was used throughout the 19th and 20th centuries 
                and continues in use today; and
                    (B) contains a variety of significant cultural and 
                natural resources.


    Section 5(a) of the National Trails System Act (16 U.S.C. 1244(a)) 
is amended--
            (1) by designating the paragraphs relating to the 
        California National Historic Trail, the Pony Express National 
        Historic Trail, and the Selma to Montgomery National Historic 
        Trail as paragraphs (18), (19), and (20), respectively; and

                Hawaii Island down the west coast of the Island around 
                Ka Lae to the east boundary of Hawaii Volcanoes
