Taken from the official website is the explanation as follows:

One aspect of the unique culture that has developed in the Alola region is the island challenge, an adventurous rite that involves traveling through each of the four islands. This event helps young people grow into fine Pokémon Trainers. As the main character of Pokémon Sun and Pokémon Moon, you yourself are destined to attempt this island challenge.

In Pokémon Sun and Moon, the player will be going through the island challenge in Alola region as a rite of passage to become a champion. You will face Trial Champions Mallow, Lana, Sophocles, and Kiawe. Totem Pokémon, with special properties and allies, may also appear. Beating the trials lets you face leaders of Alola’s four islands who govern the islands called Kahunas. They are chosen by Pokémon known as guardian deities.

To complete the island challenge, player must complete the trials, not limited to battling with Pokémon, on each of the four islands. At the end of each trial, a mighty Pokémon, Totem Pokémon, will be waiting. A Totem Pokémon is a huge Pokémon whose body is covered in a special aura.

After completing all of the trials, the final trial on each island called the grand trial will be taking place. Grand trial is a Pokémon battle against the kahuna who leads the island. If the player succeeds in clearing grand trial, they will be publicly recognized as having cleared all of the island’s trials and can move onto the next island.

To guide you in the trial are the trial captains. Trial captains are the ones giving guide for the player who undergoes the trial. There are four trial captains as mentioned above. Let’s take a look at their full profiles taken from the official website!
