In 1864, a Scottish widow purchased the island from the King Kamehameha. The family is now trying its best to save this island, and they just allow Niihau people to work and live here. Once the govt tried to throw out the owners and turn the island into a state park, but it was all in vain because the owners were dedicated to maintaining its traditional environment.
