1960s-era hippies were not welcome on Kauai

One exception was Howard Taylor, brother of actress Elizabeth Taylor. He allowed hippies to reside on his Haena property for free beginning in 1969.

When the first hippies arrived on Kauai in 1967 from the Mainland United States, they went to Kalalau Valley, but left a short time later, 15 men and women in all, after being warned by Warren Robinson of Gay &Robinson that they were trespassing on 780 acres of private property under permit to his father, Selwyn Robinson.
