According to Hawaiian mythology, Mauiloa was a High Chief ( Alii) of Maui. He is mentioned in legends and old chants and was likely a semi-historical person or character from myths.
He had control over portions of Western Maui and relied on the allegiance of many district chiefs.
Mauiloa was a contemporary of Laamaikahiki on Kauai. From the time of Mauiloa to the time of Kaulahea I, there must have been troubled times on the island of Maui.
Name of Mauiloa can be translated as "Great/Magnificent Maui".
