Declaration of War
It starts with the delivery of a simple package … two ʻulu maika stones wrapped in kapa. It was an offer, and a threat - white and black stones. The recipient was asked to make a choice.
The white stone signified peace and not war; the black stone was a symbol of war between the one who sent it and the one to whom it was sent. Return the white stone for peace, the black stone for war.
