Aloha Ashley! Never a bother... : ) Wahi is defined as: Place, location, position, site, setting

Kapu is defined as: Taboo, prohibition; special privilege or exemption from ordinary taboo; sacredness; prohibited, forbidden; sacred, holy, consecrated; no trespassing, keep out.

So One'ula is a wahi kapu, a sacred forbidden special place since it contains the burial sites of our sacred Kings, Queens... Our ali'i kapu... Thanks for asking... : )
