Koko, Hawaiian Blood

Koko (Hawaiian Blood)

The Hawaiian meaning of ‘Koko’ is blood. But Koko is not about the blood that runs through our veins. Koko is the Aka (umbilical) cord that connects us to the Wao Akua (realm of the Gods), Aumakuas (ancestral spirits) and the ‘Aina (land). 
Hawaiian identity lies in a genealogical relationship with the ‘Ike (knowledge), Ikaika (strength) and Mana (spiritual energy) of the Aumakuas (ancestral spirits). Hawaiians believe that the strength of their ancestors lies within them. They embrace the Kuleana (responsibility) of caring for the land and being a reflection of their Kapunas (teachers). They believe that their Pono (goodness) will reflect upon their descendants. The Koko channels these energies.

Koko Head Crater is one of the most popular landscapes on Oahu’s south shore.


The old Hawaiian name for Koko Crater is Kohelepelepe, which means 'labia minor' in the Hawaiian language.


Koko, the Hula Dancer, was created in honor of the meaning of Hawaiian Blood.

Koko (Hawaiian Blood) 
Birth Date: 'Apelila 20, 2017 (04/20/17) 

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

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 

The divine beat of the Ipu (gourd) echoes across the ‘Aina (land) as Koko gracefully performs the ancient Hula. With strength and agility he moves in harmony to sacred Hawaiian chants. In Hawaii Koko means 'blood' and represents the Aka (umbilical) cord that connects us to the Wao Akua (realm of the Gods), Aumakuas (ancestral spirits) and the ‘Aina (land).

In the Aloha (compassion) spirit, the Lōkahi (unity) spirit, and the Pono (righteousness) spirit, Koko 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. 


Koko's Hula is wonderful! It contains a magic that conveys the spirit of Aloha. 

Koko’s Tutu (grandmother) wove her Mana (spiritual energy) and Aloha (love) into her Mo’opuna Kane’s (grandson’s) turquoise Hulu (feather) head, wrist and ankle leis. Tutu made Koko’s traditional grass skirt and added many white conch shells. In Hawaii the Hulu and conch shell invoke blessings of the divine.


Koko is about 4” 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. Koko has tiny little hands and feet, ears, buttocks, and a belly button. All accessories were individually handcrafted.

Koko is a one of a kind display doll handcrafted by Hawaiian Dolls. He comes with his story and a certificate of authenticity. 


Koko’s dance honors the sacredness of life.

Ahi, the Fire Dancer


Birth date: Malaki 8, 2017 (03-08-17)


Ahi's dance inspires us to welcome life’s fiery eruptions with an open heart 
and grow from the valuable lessons they contain.


Named after the fire he dances with, Ahi's ceremonial dance worships Hawaii's Volcano Goddess Pele. Ahi's dance is tantalizing with a visual feast of his burning bamboo fire staff, telling stories about forests bursting into flame, fiery molten lava flowing over the land, devouring the earth, cleansing and ultimately bringing new land and life.

Ahi is spinning with his fire staff, twirling, throwing and catching it. 
His dance is thrilling and dangerous - a magnificent spectacle!


Ahi wears a red Malu (loin cloth) under his traditional Hawaiian grass skirt. His neck is adorned with a red feather amulet which symbolizes flames. He wears green feather leis around his head, wrists and ankles. His fire staff is made out of bamboo and feathers.

Ahi is a 10” tall cloth doll who was individually handcrafted on the Big Island of Hawaii with the greatest love and respect for all that is Hawaii.

His body is made out of doll skin, stuffed with high quality poly fill and wired for flexibility. The legs are jointed. The eyes and mouth are intricately embroidered onto the face.


Ahi sits on his own and stands with a little help.

Ahi is a one of a kind Hawaiian Art Doll. Every bit of him has been lovingly handcrafted, to create a new friend who will last a lifetime.

Goddess of the Surf



Birth Date: Pepeluali 21, 2017 (02-21-17)


Lucy inspires us to surrender to the waves of life with focus and balance, allowing them to safely carry us to our highest goals.

He'e Wahine I Ka Lani! 
Lucy is a Goddess in the Surf!
He'e Ana I Ka Lala, Ho'iana I Kamuku
Sliding across the face of a wave,

Lucy's best friend and greatest teacher is the ocean.
When the surf is up, Lucy runs down to Punalu’u Black Sands Beach. She can’t wait to get into the ocean. Her heart dances with Hopupu (excitement) as she eagerly anticipates the challenges of the great waves.
Lucy loves the Pacific Ocean and the surf has been her greatest teacher, evoking deep respect and humbleness within her. She knows that every wave presents a challenge of going with its flow. Lucy watches the waves, feels them inside, and connects to their Mana (spiritual energy).
She flies along the sea on her Olo (surfboard), riding the waves with focus and balance. Lucy finds the perfect attitude between tension and flexibility and rides the great wave home. It is the very best feeling in the world.

Surfing is magical; it has become her way of life! Lucy is a Goddess in the surf!

Lucy and her Kuku (grandfather) made the Olo (surfboard) together. First they chose the right Hawaiian Wiliwili tree for the board. Before cutting the tree, they faced towards the sea and said a prayer of thanks for the wood they would use. They honored the spirit of the tree by burying a fish beneath it. Last Lucy and Kuku drew a big Hawaiian Honu (sea turtle) on the Olo. The Honu is Lucy's Aumakua (Guardian Spirit). Lucy is deeply connected with the ancient wisdom of the Turtle. The Hawaiian Honu represents long life, safety, peace, and good luck. Lucy always feels protected when she surfs because she knows that her Aumakua is watching over her.
The wooden Olo is Lucy’s most treasured possession. She always carries it with her, even when she goes to sleep.

Lucy’s Tutu (grandmother) sewed her blue and green bikini and crocheted matching green shoes. She wove a Lauhala hat to protect Lucy from the sun. Last Tutu lovingly put a fragrant Plumeria flower in her hair. All these things were Tutu’s and Kuku's sacred gifts of Aloha (Love) to their beloved Mo'opuna Wahine (granddaughter).
Lucy is about 4” tall fitting in the palm of your hand. Her body is made out of stretch cotton and wired for flexibility. The eyes and mouth are intricately embroidered onto her face. Lucy has tiny little hands and feet, ears, buttocks, and a belly button. All accessories were individually handcrafted.
