Whereas the standard language today is based on the dialect of Hawaii island, which has the sound “k” at the beginning of words, the Kauai dialect was known for pronouncing this as “t”. As a result, the Kauai dialect retained the old Polynesian , “t” while the remainder of the islands evolved to the “k”.  Therefore, the native name for Kauai was Tauai, and the major settlement of Kapa’a would have been called Tapa’a.

In recent years, more movies have been filmed on Kauai than anywhere else—charmed by it’s natural beauty and amazing vistas.
