Pua 'Olena, Dream Filled Beauty

Pua `Olena
(Jimmy Kaholokula)

Pua `olena, pua moe wale
I ka nahele e moe nei
Ka ua noe makali`i
E ala mai, hö`ike mai
I kou nani
Pua `olena pua `olena

Pua `olena, dream filled beauty
Of my garden, deep in slumber
Kissed by misty summer rain
Come with me, come let's see
Of your beauty
Pua `olena pua `olena 

Ha`ina mai ka puana
Pua moe wale, pua moe `ole
I ka nahele o Hanalei

Show your beauty`Olena blossom, `olena blossom
Tell the storyBlossom asleep, blossom awake
In the forest of Hanalei

The gorgeous 'Olena plant contains much healing Mana (spiritual energy). In old Hawaii it was ceremoniously used as a purifier. The crushed roots were mixed with seawater and sprinkled on places to remove negative energies.

'Ōlena is a member of the ginger family. The many healing powers of the root include: relief of earaches, clearing the sinuses, diuretic relief and acne treatment. It also enhances the immune system and purifies the blood. Additionally 'Olena is used as a perfume and to make dye and tea.

The magical Mana of the beautiful 'Olena plant inspired the creation of Menehune girl Pua 'Olena, the Hula Dancer.

Here is 'Olena's story:

Pua 'Olena
('Olena Flower)
Birth Date: Kekemapa 8, 2013 (12/08/13)

Pua `olena, pua moe wale
I ka nahele e moe nei

Pua `olena, dream filled beauty
Of my garden, deep in slumber

Menehune girl Pua 'Olena is named after the beautiful Hawaiian 'Olena plant.
With a big smile on her beautiful face Pua 'Olena dances the sacred, ancient Hawaiian Kahiko Hula to honor the magical healing Mana (spiritual energy) of the 'Olena plant.
The Menehunes are enchanted watching Pua 'Olena's dances. Her graceful movements tell stories about the wonders of nature, the creation of the world and much more.

Watch her closely! Pua 'Olena invites you to enter her sacred space so that your beauty can unfold like the precious blossoms of the 'Olena plant.

Pua 'Olena’s Tutu (grandmother) wove her Mana (spiritual energy) and Aloha (love) into the Ohia and 'Olena flower leis she wears around her head and wrists.
The red crystals in her head lei symbolize the precious Lehua blossoms of the Hawaiian Ohia tree which are sacred to Pele, the Big Island’s Volcano Goddess.

Pua 'Olena 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 accessories were individually handcrafted.

Pua 'Olena and her brother, Koko, often dance the Hula together. Gracefully, they move in harmony to sacred ancient chants. In deep respect they Aloha Honua (honor the earth).
Their dance contains a magic that conveys the spirit of Aloha.

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

Pua 'Olena’s dance channels the healing Mana of the 'Olena plant.
