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 Kama and his Aumakua (Guardian Spirit) Pua'a.
Kama 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). Kama, carrying his ihe (spear), and Pua’a with his tusks are always ready to protect the Menehunes from all harm.
Kama and Pua’a channel strength and courage.
