Kohola, the Humpback Whale, Majestic Aumakua of Hawaiian Waters



The majestic Koholas grace us with their presence in the vast Pacific Ocean around the Islands of Hawaii. Their enormous sphere of magical Mana (spiritual energy) is absolutely mesmerizing.
The entrancing sound of the Kohala’s song is synchronized with the oneness that exists in all. It is one of the most complex signals made by any animal in the world.
In the Hawaiian waters all Humpback Whales in a certain area sing the same song during mating and birthing season from November until May. Within the 6 months season they all conform to the slowly changing themes of their song. The about 20 minute long song is often sung over and over for hours.

Koholas play a significant role in Hawaiian culture. Native Hawaiians have always honored the gentle guidance and wisdom of the Koholas. Whales are the essence of their deep rooted connection with the ocean and the Humpback Whale has become Aumakua to many Hawaiians. He is their ancestral guardian spirit, who guides, protects and inspires them.
Early Hawaiians worshipped the Kohola in the Kumulipo Chant, the Hawaiian Chant of Creation:

"Hanau ka palaoa noho I kai"
Born is the whale living in the ocean.

In Hawaiian mythology, Kanaloa was the god of the ocean. Kohola is a majestic manifestation of Kanaloa.

Lei Niho Palaoa

The Lei Niho Palaoa is a whale tooth pendant and was an important symbol of rank for the highest Ali‘i (royalty) of Hawaii. The whale teeth were collected from carcasses that had washed ashore. The carved hook pendant was strung on thousands of finely braided strands of human hair. The scarcity and beauty of the Lei Niho Palaoa and its connection to Kanaloa brought Mana (spiritual power) to the carver and the pendant’s wearer. The Ali’i believed that, by wearing this Kinolau (body form) of the great god, they would embody Kanaloa’s powerful Mana.

The humpback whale is an endangered species. Commercial whaling at the start of the 20th century has depleted the global whale population. Today, more than 10,000 Humpback Whales use the warm Hawaiian waters as their wintering ground to mate, give birth and care for their young.

Kohola, the Menehune Sailor, was created in honor of the grandeur, wisdom and grace of the majestic Humpback Whale.
Here is Kohola's story:


 Kohola (Humpback Whale)
Birthdate: 'Apelila 4, 2014 (04/04/14)

Kohola is named after his Aumakua (ancestral guardian spirit), the majestic Humpback Whale. Kohola always feels protected by the guidance and wisdom of his Aumakua, when he sails his coconut boat in the gentle breeze of Punalu’u Black Sands Beach. He follows the entrancing sound of the Whale’s song which leads him to his treasures and away from all harm.

Kohola’s treasures are the precious conch shells he scoops up with his fishing net when he sails his 
coconut boat through the beautiful bays of Punaluu Black Sands Beach. 

The Pu (Conch Shell) is a gift from the Pacific Ocean. When blown, its pure sound echoes across the ‘Aina (land) invoking blessings of divine Mana (spiritual energy).

Kohola is the most generous little Menehune. His heart is as big as the whale. Kohola's Mana (spiritual energy) is Aloha (love) and compassion. Sharing his treasures with his Menehune Ohana (family) brings him the greatest joy. Nothing makes Kohola happier than passing out the most treasurable shell gifts to his Menehune Ohana and seeing their joy and appreciation which in turn is the greatest gift to him.


Kohola knows that the more he gives, the more he will receive. Kohola sees with his heart and acts with compassion.



Kohola’s Tutu (grandmother) wove her Mana into the Ti Leaf Leis he wears around his head and neck and draped another one around the sail of his canoe. According to ancient Hawaiian beliefs, Ti leaves provide protection from all harm. Surrounded by Ti leaves and guided by his Aumakua, the Humpback Whale, Kohola always feels save and secure.
Tutu also sewed his ocean blue Malu (wraparound) and crocheted his red pants. All this were Tutu’s sacred gifts of Aloha (Love) to her Mo’opuna Kane (grandson).




Kohola is about 3.5” tall fitting in the palm of your hand. The body is made out of stretch cotton and wired for flexibility. The eyes and mouth are intricately embroidered onto the face. Kohola has little hands and feet, ears, buttocks, and a belly button. His malu (wraparound) is sewn out of the same cotton fabric as his sail. The hand carved, sanded and polished coconut for Kohala’s boat was selected from palm trees at Punalu’u Black Sands Beach.
All accessories were individually handcrafted.

The Humpback Whale on his sail gives Kohola the greatest comfort. It reminds him that, if he should ever get lost at sea, he can call on his Aumakua, the Whale, who always, without fail, will come to guide him safely back to shore.

Kohola is a one of a kind collectible display dolls handcrafted by Hawaiian Dolls. His coconut boat is signed and dated. Kohola comes with his story and a certificate of authenticity.


Kohola reflects the majestic Mana of the Humpback Whale.

The Hawaiian Olapa Dance, Empowering the Spirit Within



Birthdate: Malaki 24,2014 (03/24/14)


As the leaves of the Hawaiian Niu (Coconut Palm) sway gently in the slightest breeze so does Olapa (Dancer) move with the energies of the Universe.
Singing and dancing to the sweet sound of her Ukulele, she explores everything nature has to offer.

Mana I ka pua
Ua mohala malie.

There is Mana in the flower
That has blossomed slowly.

The Menehunes clap their hands in delight, begging for some more of Olapa’s delightful dances and music. The enchanting sound of the Ukulele accompanies her songs and dances about the Menehune Ohana (family), Hawaiian animals, the forest, the ocean, and the stars in the Universe. Celebrating Hawaii’s Aloha spirit, the Menehunes dance with Olapa under the Palm trees to the rhythm of her wonderful music.

Olapa's dance and music illuminate life with joy and happiness. Her cheerful Mana (Spiritual Energy) brightens up the day with love and laughter.



Olapa’sTutu (grandmother) wove her Mana (spiritual energy) and Aloha (love) into the Ti Leaf leis she wears around her head and wrists. Ti leaves are sacred to Laka, the Goddess of Hula. According to ancient Hawaiian beliefs, Ti leaves provide spiritual protection and invoke the blessings of the Gods.


Tutu also wove Olapa’s green Ti leaf skirt and sewed a blue cotton top and matching pants for her beloved Mo’opuna Wahine (granddaughter).
The Ukulele was Kuku’s (grandfather’s) gift of lasting love and Aloha to Olapa. It became her most cherished possession. She holds it even when she goes to sleep.



Olapa is about 3.5” tall fitting in the palm of your hand. The body is made out of stretch cotton and wired for flexibility. The eyes and mouth are intricately embroidered onto the face. She has tiny little hands and feet, ears, buttocks, and a belly button.
The stem of the Palm tree is made out of the seed pod of a Hawaiian Palm. The hand carved, sanded and polished coconut base was selected from palm trees at Punalu'u Black Sands Beach.
All of Olapa’s accessories were individually handcrafted.



In the evenings Olapa and her brother, Kahiko (Hula), often dance and sing together under the Palm trees at Punalu’u Black Sands Beach. In perfect harmony they express their Aloha Aina (love of the land).

Olapa is a one of a kind collectible display doll handcrafted by Hawaiian Dolls.
She comes with the Palm tree, her story and a certificate of authenticity.

The gentle breeze of Olapa’s Mana (spiritual energy) empowers the spirit within.

The Hawaiian Oli Chant, Returning to Our Spiritual Source


“E Alae!”
(Arise!)


In the awareness of Mana (spirit) and Kuleana (responsibility) to all things, Hawaiian Kahunas (priests) greeted the sunrise with this simple Oli chant.

In ancient Hawaii words held great power. The Oli is recognized as the highest form of the Hawaiian language. It is the soul of Hawaii, preserving history, traditions and prayers.

The spiritual power of an Oli lies in its Kaona (hidden meaning). For example depending on the perception of the chanter and listener, the mention of the Lehua blossom could be a metaphor for love or it could tell about an actual event in a family’s history.

The beautiful sound, tonal patterns and vibrations invoke a connection to the deepest spiritual essence of the chant.

The Oli attunes us to spirit, expands our consciousness and gladdens the heart.

The concept of ancient Hawaiian teachings conveys that our highest purpose for being on this planet is to connect to the spiritual source. The following Oli calls in the higher self, invoking inspiration, protection and wisdom:

“Moe Uhane (calling the spririt)

He kanaka loa

He kanaka poko

He ui a’a he alaneo

A na maka pa I ka lani

Malu ka honua

La kama uhili e

He’e nei ku

I ka moe au a ke kahuna”


The power of these ancient words can alter the energy around us transcending our being into the supreme light of truth.

The Hawaiian Oli chant inspired the creation of Magical Menehune Girl, Oli.


Oli (Chant)

Birthdate: Malaki 8, 2014 (03/08/14)


“E Alae!”

(Arise!)


Oli chants and drums on her Ipu (gourd) calling the Menehune Ohana (family). Eagerly the Menehunes come running to the family gathering place in the beautiful Ohia forest. They know, Oli is ready to chant yet another one of her exciting stories for them. Her chants tell about the Menehune Ohana, the Hawaiian animals, the forest, the ocean, and the stars in the Universe. The Menehunes listen to Oli’s chants in wonder, sometimes laughing, sometimes crying, and always full of excitement. Oli’s chants are wonderful!
Oli uses her words to weave the chants into being. She knows that words and thoughts have tremendous power to shape reality, often changing the past, present, and future.

Oli’s chants invoke inspiration, protection and wisdom.

Oli’s Tutu (grandmother) wove her Mana (spiritual energy) and Aloha (love) into the Haku (head lei) and wrist leis. She made the Haku out of the traditional fragrant Hawaiian Maile leaves. Maile is the lei of eternal love.
Tutu adorned the Haku with Poni ‘Awapuhi (purple ginger) and added the small fragrant yellow Puakenikeni flowers. The purple Hulu (feather) lei around her hips is believed to link to the divine.
Tutu also sewed Oli’s purple wraparound skirt and fastened a purple crystal to the matching top. She crocheted purple lacy panties.
Hawaiian gourds grow on a vine. Oli’s Tutu (grandmother) picked the most beautiful of the Ipus. She cleaned, polished and decorated it with a purple crystal and cord.
It was her sacred gift of Aloha (Love) to her Mo’opuna (granddaughter) and became Oli’s most treasured possession.




Oli is about 3.5” tall fitting in the palm of your hand. The body is made out of stretch cotton and wired for flexibility. The eyes and mouth are intricately embroidered onto the face. She has tiny little hands and feet, ears, buttocks, and a belly button.
All of Oli’s accessories were individually handcrafted.

Oli is named after the sacred Hawaiian Oli chant. She often walks through the serene Ohia forest in the Kaiholena Mountains, where the splendor of nature’s beauty inspires her chants. 


Kahiko, the Menehune Dancer, moves in harmony to his Kumu Hula (teacher) Oli’s sacred chants. Humbly and respectfully, Oli and Kahiko Aloha Honua (honor the earth) together.

Oli is a one of a kind collectible display doll handcrafted by Hawaiian Dolls.
She comes with her story and a certificate of authenticity.

Oli attunes us to the spirit of Hawaii.

Hula Kahiko, an Ancient Way of Life


Ma’ema’e ke ‘ala e holo ala 
E ala mai, E naue mai, E noke mai e 

Clear the path to move on 
Awake, Move, Persevere 
(Kumu Keala Ching) 

Moving in harmony to Kumu (teacher) Hula’s sacred chants and the rhythm of her Ipu, the dancer gracefully performs the ancient Kahiko Hula.

Kahiko, the most ancient form of hula, is more than just a dance. It is an ancient artful way of life that expresses Hawaii’s rich history and spirituality.

In ancient times Hula Kahiko was danced exclusively by men. Adorned with Maile leis, the dancers honor Hawaii’s Hula Goddess Laka. Expressing a deep reverence for their spiritual roots, they performed the vigorous dance with strength and agility, intention and determination.

In the Aloha (compassion) spirit, the Lōkahi (unity) spirit, and the Pono (righteousness) spirit, the Kahiko Hula honors the gods, passes along ancient Hawaiian history and tells stories about aumakuas (ancestral guardians), the sacredness of life and respect for all things.

The enchanting ancient Hawaiian Hula inspired the creation of Magical Hawaiian Menehune Kahiko.


Kahiko (Hula)

In the Aloha (compassion) spirit, the Lōkahi (unity) spirit, and the Pono (righteousness) spirit, Kahiko honors the gods, tells stories about Aumakuas (ancestral guardians), the sacredness of life and respect for all things with his dance. The Menehune Ohana (family) loves to watch. Kahiko’s Hula and Kumu Hula Oli’s chants are wonderful!

Kahiko’s dance inspires us to awake, move forward and persevere, to live in faith with intention, determination and courage.

Kamapua'a, the Hawaiian Pig God


"Kauhale o Kamapua`a 
Wehiwehi i ka nahele 
Ka uhi pa`a ka noe 
Me anuenue i ke awawa 

Home of Kamapua`a 
Adorned with growth 
Covered with mist 
With rainbows in the valley"


According to Hawaiian legend, Kamapua’a was born on the island of Oahu. Kamapua’a had superhuman powers and was often referred to as Pua’a Akua (Hog God). As a kupua (demigod) he could change at will from a handsome loveable man to a destructive hog.

Pele, Hawaiian Volcano Goddess, and Kamapua’a were once lovers. Their romance didn’t last very long and soon turned into competitive battles, in which Kamapua’a unsuccessfully tried to extinguish Pele’s flame.

Many formations around the islands are considered evidence of the fierce battles between Pele and Kamapua’a. Eventually, Pele granted Kamapua’a to reign in the rainforests of Kohala, Hamakua and Hilo.

Kamapua’a became protector of the pigs and the cascading waterfalls bestowing abundant growth to the lands of Hawaii.

The legendary Hawaiian Pig God, Kamapua'a, inspired the creation of Magical Hawaiian Menehune Kahu and his Aumakua (Guardian Spirit) Pua'a.


Kahu and Pua'a
(Guardian and Pig)

Birthdate: Pepeluali 26, 2014 (02/26/14) 

Pua’a is Kahu’s Aumakua (Guardian Spirit). Kahu and Pua’a are so closely connected that they became inseparable friends. 

Kanaka and Pua’a are the Menehune’s guardians. Together they walk fearlessly through the beautiful forest in the Kaiholena Mountains watching for dangers and threats to their beloved Ohana (family). Kahu, carrying his ihe (spear), and Pua’a with his tusks are always ready to protect the Menehunes from all harm.



Learn to be aware and watchful like Kahu and Pua’a. Let their Mana (spiritual energy) of strength and courage flow into you. 

Kahu’s Kuku (grandfather) helped him to make his wooden ihe (spear). The top of the ihe is surrounded by Hawaiian Ti leaves for purification and protection. When the ihe was finished Kahu and his Kuku blessed it with a prayer and salt water from the Pacific Ocean.

Kahu’s Tutu (grandmother) wove her Mana (spiritual energy) and Aloha (love) into the beautiful Hawaiian Kupukupu ferns leis Kahu wears around his head, wrists and ankles. Hawaiian Tree Ferns represent spiritual strength, unity and love.
Tutu also sewed his green lava lava (wraparound) with a fern design and crocheted red underpants.
Last, as an added blessing and protection, Tutu wrapped the tusk amulet around her beloved Mo’opuna Kane’s (grandson’s) neck.

Kahu is about 3.5” tall fitting in the palm of your hand. The body is made out of stretch cotton and wired for flexibility. The eyes and mouth are intricately embroidered onto the face. He has little hands and feet, ears, buttocks, and a belly button.
Pua’a is about 3.5” long fitting in the palm of your hand. The body is made out of black synthetic fur and wired for flexibility. The tusks are made out of clay. The hooves are covered with soft black leather.
All accessories were individually handcrafted.

Whenever Kahu’s cousins, Lili and Lomi, walk through the forest to gather fruits and Ti Leaves, Pua’a and Kahu are right there to watch over them.
Pua’a gets really exited when he sees Lili and Lomi. They always pet him and never forget to give him some Mai’as (bananas), his favorite treat.

Kahu and Pua’a are one of a kind collectible display dolls handcrafted by Hawaiian Dolls. They come with their story and a certificate of authenticity.


Kahu and Pua’a channel strength and courage.

Pueo, the Hawaiian Owl, Aumakua of Divine Guidance



People of all cultures are drawn into the mystic realm of the owl. This divine bird of power invokes intense feelings of awe, inspiration and fear. All over the world, the owl is recognized as a symbol of wisdom and knowledge.

Pueo, the Hawaiian Owl has a special place in Hawaii’s mythology. Pueos were silently sailing over the Hawaiian Islands well before the arrival of the first Polynesians. Pueo is a short eared owl who inhabits the mountains and sea lands throughout the islands of Hawaii. Pueos are endemic to Hawaii and listed as an endangered species.
The Pueo has always been sacred to the people of Hawaii and treated with the utmost love and respect. The mystic bird of wisdom often appears to offer guidance and protection. The Mana (spiritual energy) of this beautiful creature of the night reaches far into the spirit world. Up to this day, many Hawaiians have such a strong connection to Pueo that she becomes a kinolau (physical manifestation) of Aumakua (ancestral spirit).
To the ancient Hawaiians, an Aumakua was a deified ancestral guardian spirit, embodying the form of an animal to watch over their descendants. An Aumakua could manifest itself as a pueo (owl), shark, a sea turtle, an 'Io (hawk), or other animal. Aumakuas empower, guide, protect and inspire their descendants. Pueo is among the oldest of the Aumakua. She is often asked for advice in times of need.

Pueo is considered the “Bringer of Good Luck", protector and messenger.

Her messages may come in a dream, voice, vision, or sign.

Many stories have been told of Pueo. One of the most famous legends, “The Battle of the Owls”, tells of an Oahu man who robbed an owl's nest. After he put the eggs in his bag, the owl-parent shrieked with grief and fury. The man felt terribly sorry and quickly returned the eggs unharmed to the nest. He also took the owl as his god and built a temple in its honor. The ruling chief thought this was rebellion against the prevalent gods, and ordered the man's execution. When the weapon was poised and the man feared his last breath, the owls gathered close and darkened the skies with their wings. The king's soldiers were blinded by the darkness and unable to perform the execution. The man was free. Pueo-hulu-nui near Moanalua on Oahu is one of the alleged places where this awesome battle took place.

There are times in the peaceful nights of the secluded mountains of Ka`u when I hear the whoosh of great wings as a Pueo flies right over my house. To me these occasions are always a good omen and blessing. The Pueo brings divine mana (spiritual energy) from the realm of the spirit world which fills me with humbleness.

My love and respect for the Hawaiian Owl inspired me to create Menehune Boy Pueo and his Aumakua, Iana.



Pueo (Owl) and Iana (White Owl) 

Birthdate: Pepeluali 22, 2014 (02/22/14) 

Pueo is named after his Aumakua (Guardian Spirit), the Hawaiian Owl. The Pueo has always been sacred to the Hawaiians and is considered “the Bringer of Good Luck”.

Pueo is so closely connected to his Aumakua that Iana (White Owl) chose him as a close friend. Iana appears whenever Pueo calls on her but she also often comes on her own at important times of change when she knows that her advise is needed. Iana always lands on Pueo’s right arm where he greets her with love and respect. Together they walk through the majestic Koa forest in the Kaiholena Mountains. Pueo knows that Iana brings Mana, supernatural powers.

Her messages come to him in visions and dreams. Pueo always follows Iana’s guidance and advise knowing that it will keep him and his Menehune Ohana (family) save from all harm and lead them to happiness and good fortune.

Pueo and Iana are bringers of good luck and offer guidance and wisdom in all areas of life. 

Pueo’s Tutu (grandmother) wove her Aloha (love) and Mana into her Mo’opuna Kane’s (grandson) Maile leis. Maile is the lei of rternal love. Tutu crafted a special amulet using one of Iana’s white feathers and a green crystal to inspire spiritual strength, unity and love.

Tutu also sewed Pueo’s lavalava (wraparound) out of red cotton with a Maile leaf design and crocheted matching green underwear.

Pueo is about 3.5” tall, fitting in the palm of your hand. The body is made out of stretch cotton and wired for flexibility. The eyes and mouth are intricately embroidered onto the face. Pueo has tiny little hands and feet, ears, buttocks, and a belly button.

Iana is made out of white synthetic fur and feathers. Her body is wired for flexibility. The eyes are black crystals. The beak is hand molded out of clay.

Pueo’s doll stand is a small piece of custom hand carved, sanded and polished Koa wood.

All accessories were individually handcrafted.

Pueo is Pele’s brother and dedicated guardian. Whenever Pele walks through the sacred Hawaiian Ohia forest, Pueo and Iana are right there to watch over her. Together they rejoice in the Mana of peace and happiness that surrounds them.

Pueo and Iana are one of a kind collectible display dolls handcrafted by Hawaiian Dolls. They come with their story and a certificate of authenticity.

Pueo and Iana channel the spiritual wisdom of Hawaii.

Aloha Angels


There is a love we always can depend on. We were born with it in the loving embrace of our guardian angel. Some may call it our inner spirit being whose devotion and infinite wisdom guards, guides and enlightens us on our life’s journey. All we ever need to do is turn within and ask our angel for help or inspiration. There always is a response offering strength and guidance. Maybe the answer doesn’t come right away, but there will be that moment of clarity when we just know what we need to do.

Awareness and opening ourselves to receive the message is crucial. Otherwise, it may be overlooked or not perceived correctly. Messages can come through a voice, a vision, a dream, or a sign. We must welcome this heavenly advice. Sometimes we may reject the message because it would lead us on a path we don’t want to take. The course of action may not make sense but somewhere inside it feels like the right thing to do. We then have to take the detour and follow this heavenly inner guidance trusting that everything is unfolding in a divine perfection which lays way beyond our imagination. Following the enlightened path of our guardian angel often leads to a seemingly magical, almost effortless conclusion of the issue.

Ancient Hawaiians referred to angels as Awaiku, the spiritual nature of human being. The Awaikus came from a place called Kaulike, where everything was in balance. Their home is Lanikeha, the high sky. Hawaiian Kahunas (magicians) called on the Awaiku’s healing powers, their protection and guidance in all life situations.

In most cultures the essence of angels is unconditional love. They beckon us to enter our sacred inner space to illuminate our lives with the light of consciousness.

The devotion of guardian angels inspired the creation of Magical Hawaiian Menehune angel Hoku (Star).


 Hoku's story:

The sacred rhythm of the Ipu echoes across the ‘Aina (land) calling Hoku, the Menehune Guardian Angel to earth. Hoku is named after the brightly shining stars in her home Lanikeha, the high sky.
Hoku carries a candle in her sacred Hawaiian Ipu (gourd), which invokes blessings of the divine. The heavenly light of Hoku’s candle illuminates the paths of the Menehune’s lives on earth.
The Menehunes know Hoku always watches over them enlightening their lives with her angelic presence. Hearing the divine drumming of the Ipu in the distance, the Menehunes sense that Hoku is near. Sometimes she allows them a glance at the heavenly glow of her Ipu candle or a glimpse of her angelic white feather wings passing by to remind them how brightly the Aloha spirit is shining from their own souls. All they have to do is call and Hoku appears offering her wisdom and guidance.

Welcome Hoku as your guardian angel! She is devoted to protecting and guiding you on your life’s journey.

Hoku often rests in the serene Hawaiian Ohia forest, worshipping the beautiful world around her. She never tires of rejoicing in the abundant splendor of nature.

Hoku wears a turquoise Hawaiian Lava Lava (wraparound dress) with a white Plumeria flower and a star crystal in the front and white crocheted panties. Her yellow Hulu (feather) haku (head lei) represents spiritual strength, unity and love. A white Plumeria flower adorns her beautiful long brown hair. She is holding an Ipu with a star crystal and a candle in her hands. The angel wings are crafted out of real white feathers.

Hoku is about 3.5” tall, fitting in the palm of your hand. The body is made out of stretch cotton and wired for flexibility. The eyes and mouth are intricately embroidered onto the face. Hoku has tiny little hands and feet, ears, buttocks, and a belly button. All accessories were individually handcrafted.

Hoku is a one of a kind display doll handcrafted by Hawaiian Dolls. She is a collector’s item bringing you the spiritual power of Hawaii. Hoku comes with her story and a certificate of authenticity.

Hoku’s Mana (spiritual energy) radiates unconditional Aloha.
