Kū i ka māna; to be like the one from whom you have learned. Kū nō i ka māna a ke kahu hānai, trait acquired from association with the one who raised the child. These momi remind us that we all have traits passed on to us through our DNA, but we also have traits that we gain through social interactions with those adults we grow up with. Live with pono and aloha. pc: @kilikaiahuna

ʻŌiwi viewed wai as the essence of life for their ahupuaʻa much like their view of the human body. The ʻāina like the human body is dependent on the health of fresh water, the arteries, the rivers of the ahupuaʻa, the spice of life. From the pūnāwai and wailele to the muliwai, all contributed to social, political and economic well-being for kānaka.

He pūkoʻa kani ʻāina. In their travels around the Pacific, ʻōiwi would pass coralheads which navigators would mark in their memories and pass on their apprentices. Eventually they would notice these small coralheads would grow into a full islands and so comes the advice that we can't expect to be full-blown successes right away, often we start small and over time, like a coralhead, we will mature and be successful.

Our Helu Pō Tee features the phases of the moon. The Hawaiian calendar is based upon the phases of the moon. The year had twelve months of 29.5 phases and every three to six years, a thirteenth lunar month was added. Each month starts with the new moon, Hilo, and ends either with the dark moons, Mauli or Muku, depending on the time of year.

As early inhabitants of the most isolated islands on Earth, ʻōiwi had to be resilient and smart when transitioning to their new world. Some plants were carefully carried to Hawaiʻi from other parts in Polynesia, “canoe plants” whose uses and moʻolelo (stories) were essential to way of life.

E Kū i kaupaku o Hanalei, makuʻu oloa; O Kū of the mystic, wonderful ridgepole of Hanalei. When a rulling aliʻi’s heiau was about to be completed in Hanalei, kahuna fastened several bundles of white kapa to the ridgepole of the newly completed structure. This oli was said in tribute to Kū.

Our versatile towels are quick drying to prevent bad odors and keep you dry, even if you don't wash it after multiple uses. Because our towels are 5 times lighter and packs 8 times smaller, there is no more carrying around super heavy or bulky towels! Great for the beach, hiking, fishing, hunting, camping, swimming, paddling, kayaking, yoga, pilates, gym workouts, picnics or Concert Festivals! Ready for any adventure!

Moʻolelo tell us one day Pele met a handsome warrior named ʻŌhiʻa and she asked him to marry her. ʻŌhiʻa, however, had already pledged his love to Lehua.  Furious he turned down her proposal, she turned ʻŌhiʻa into a twisted tree. Lehua was heartbroken and the gods took pity on her. They decided to turn Lehua into a beautiful flower on the ʻŌhiʻa tree so that the two lovers would be forever joined together.

What is called Hanalei today actually consists of four ahupuaʻa, Hanalei, Waiʻoli, Waipa, and Waikoko. Hanalei was the largest of the nine ahupuaʻa of the Haleleʻa district. It stretched from Waiʻaleʻale through the steep canyon following the Hanalei river to the ocean. It included what is known today as Princeville, Wainini, and about a quarter of the crescent beach.

ʻŌiwi were keen observers of the natural world. One of the many hana noʻeau practices that was both continued and adapted in the islands was the making of kaula (cordage). Kaula was a foundational part of many of the tools and operations of daily life. Used to lash waʻa (canoes), holding the timber frame of a hale, woven to create ʻupena (fishnet), even the foundation of creating ʻahuʻula (feather capes) worn by aliʻi for centuries. Cords have always connected generations, from one’s piko physically linking one generation to the next, to the actual practice of the art form. Today cords are linking more distant generations. The making of cordage, so valued a skill in past centuries, is one of the many traditional practices that have found eager current-day haumāna.
