Chief Walakea was a leader and a member of the Kanakie tribe located somewhere in the Pacific Ocean. His tribe was in a pact with the Deep Ones; and underwater-alien race that Kanakies worshipped as gods. It was Walakea who taught Captain Obed Marsh a ritual to summon Deep Ones. Somewhere around the year 1838 his tribe was attacked and most likely destroyed by the natives from the other islands.
