Birth Date: ʻOkakopa 28, 2018 (10-28-18)

Mana's spiritual energy empowers, enchants, flows and radiates.

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

Herb Kawainui Kane’s painting ‘Legend of the Magic Shell’ inspired the creation of Mana and the Magic Shell.

Chanting to the sacred song of the sea shell she stands in, secrets of the ocean are revealed to Mana. Her dreams and wishes manifest. The magic of the shell carries her to secret places of the heart.


Mana's chants touch the heart and reach deeply into the ancestor’s world. Mana is honoring the Akuas (spirits) of the ‘Aina (land).
Aglow with focused energy, strength and agility, Mana merges with the spirits of nature.

Mana means spiritual energy in the Hawaiian language. Mana is the soul of Hawaii.


In the Aloha (compassion) spirit, the Lōkahi (unity) spirit, and the Pono (righteousness) spirit, Mana's chants honor the Akuas, tell stories about Aumakuas (ancestral guardians), respect for all things and the sacredness of life.

Mana’s magic sea shell chants inspire us to awake, move forward and persevere,
to embrace our spiritual energy with intention, determination and courage.


Mana’s Tutu (grandmother) wove her Mana  (spiritual energy) and Aloha (love) into the white Hulu (feather) lei for her beloved Mo'opuna (Granddaughter). The Hulu is believed to link to the divine.
Tutu sewed Mana's white and green top and matching wraparound skirt. She crocheted white lace panties and little shoes for Mana.

Magical Hawaiian Ocean


In Hawaiian mythology Kanaloa is the god of the ocean and the ocean winds. He is one of the four major gods of Hawaii: Kane, Kanaloa, Ku and Lono. Kanaloa was strongly connected with Kane, the creator of all life. When the people in old Hawaiians built a canoe, they would invoke Kane's blessing for the building and Kanaloa's for its sailing.
On their journeys together Kanaloa and Kane would share the sacred drink of 'Awa (drink of the gods). Striking the ground with their staffs they caused hidden springs of fresh water to burst forth.
Ki'is (statues) show Kanaloa wearing a headdress that touches the ground connecting the conscious and unconscious mind, integrating the upper and lower selves.
Statues of Kanaloa feature him with round eyes, unlike those of any other representations of the gods. According to a Kauai tradition, if you could look into the eye of Kanaloa you would see the symbol of Pono (goodness) and be healed. Kanaloa is a healer god. One of his Kinolaus (forms) is the He'e (octopus), which was believed to make sickness flee.
Ka-na-loa means 'grounded'. Kanaloa reminds us that a solid foundation brings security, strength and healing.

The great Hawaiian healing Ocean God inspired the creation of the Hawaiian Ocean Scene.
