Haumea, the Great Hawaiian Earth Goddess

“O Haumea nui aiwaiwa.” 
Great Haumea was mysterious. 

Haumea is regarded as the mother of the Hawaiian people. She is said to be the first who walked the sacred Hawaiian Islands giving birth to many children, including Pele, the famous Hawaiian Volcano Goddess.
Haumea is the Hawaiian Earth Goddess of fertility and birth. She is a calm, gentle, loving, and nurturing Goddess. She enhances our awareness that humans originated from the earth and are inseparably connected to her. Haumea is the bringer of fruition and sustenance. She provides unlimited abundance.

“He lau kinoo ia wahine o Haumea” 
This woman Haumea had many forms. 

Haumea was believed to have the power to change her form and her appearance from a young woman to an old woman. In Hawaiian chants she is called “Haumea of mysterious forms, of eightfold form, of four hundred thousand forms”.

The 'Ulu (breadfruit tree) was sacred to Haumea. She would embody herself at will into an 'Ulu tree which provided a never ending abundance of breadfruit for the Hawaiian people.

“Komo I ka ‘ulu, he ‘ulu ia.” 
Entering a growing tree, she became a breadfruit tree. 

As the Goddess of birth and fertility, Haumea became the Hawaiian people’s divine midwife. She would appear at birth to offer comfort and natural home remedies, ensuring an easy painless labor for the mother.

One of the Hawaiian legends tells the story of Muleiula who is having a difficult birth.
As the women prepare for a caesarian, Haumea appears and says:” In our land babies are born naturally. Give the mother the Kani ka wi blossom of the Ka lau o ke kahuli tree.” After the girl ate some of the blossom her child was born easily and naturally.

Mother Earth provides insights, strength, clarity and wisdom. In our connection with her we find an unlimited source of support and nourishment. Haumea inspires us to restore our connection to Mother Earth, to honor her and be forever grateful for life's unlimited sustenance and abundance. 

Ola Ka 'Aina.
The land lives.

Menehune girl Haumea was created in the spirit of the great Hawaiian Earth Goddess.

Haumea, Hawaiian Earth Goddess
Birthdate: Lulai 4, 2015 (07/04/15)

Allow the gentle pull of Haumea's Mana to guide you to your place of power!

Like the Hawaiian Earth Goddess she is named after, Haumea is blessed with a loving, nurturing, gentle heart. With her unconditional Aloha spirit she nurtures and helps all who are in need.
Haumea is resting under her sacred ‘Ulu (breadfruit) Tree, which provides a never ending abundance of nourishments, strength and endurance.
In the morning Haumea calls her Menehune Ohana (family) to breakfast. After picking a big breadfruit from the tree she cuts it into thin slices which she fries like pancakes. It tastes so good! The Menehunes are having a feast.

Haumea’s Tutu (grandmother) wove her Mana (spiritual energy) and Aloha (love) into the green feather Haku (head lei) and wrist leis. In Hawaii the Hulu (feather) represents spiritual strength, unity and love. It is believed to link to the divine.
Tutu also sewed Haumea’s yellow drewss. She crocheted yellow panties and matching shoes. She adorned the shoes and top of the dress with yellow crystals. All these things were Tutu's gifts of Aloha (Love) for her beloved Mo’opuna Wahine (granddaughter).

Haumea 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
The ‘Ulu (breadfruit) Tree is handcrafted out of coconut shell, artificial leaves and clay.
All accessories were individually handcrafted.

Haumea loves to dwell in the cool shade of her ‘Ulu Tree rejoicing in the abundance of Mother Earth.

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

Haumea inspires us to honor Mother Earth.
