When referring to the Hawaiian islands in a novel, should I write Lanai or Lana'i?

I want to be consistent, so if I start doing the apostrophes on one island, I'll have to do them all. I would rather type is the mainland way, but since the whole book takes place in Hawaii, I want to be authentic with the setting. In travel articles, it is usually spelled without the apostrophes.

sort by best latest
