Brief History:

Molokai is often referred to as The Most Hawaiian Island because of the percentage of the population (40%) that is native Hawaiian. It was once known as a religious hub to the islands, and as such was protected from many of the battles between Chieftains that wracked the islands from time to time. Its current population is estimated at 8,000, and its main industry is cattle farming. Massive resorts are non-existent; this is one place you can go to see the genuine, untouched Hawaii.
