Surrounded by his Ohana’s (family’s) Aloha (love), Honu Keiki lies contently in his coconut cradle sucking on his thumb. The deep inner knowing that he is always taken care of fills him with trust and love.
Allow the Honu’s wisdom to embrace and guide you on your quest.
Honu Keiki’s Tutu (grandmother) crocheted his turquoise pants and matching booties which she adorned with tiny green crystals.
She also sewed the turquoise bedding with a Turtle design for the cradle, sewed 2 turtle buttons on the sides and decorated the top with an orange feather lei.
The color turquoise symbolizes wealth and spiritual harmony. The Hulu (feather) lei is believed to link to the divine.
Tutu put a banana in Honu Keiki's pocket, in case he gets hungry, and draped a sacred Honu amulet for protection around her beloved Mo’opuna Kane's (grandson's) neck.
The little turtle is about 1.5” long. Her body is made out of soft brown cloth and wired for flexibility.
