Hawaii's Coral Reef, Sacred Landscape of the Pacific Ocean

The magnificent Puna (Coral) is a gift from the ocean.

Coral is believed to have great magical and medicinal Mana (spiritual energy). It is the stone of passion and healing. Coral provides protection from illness and harm. According to research, corals contain hormones which have a strong positive influence on the human body. Ashes from burned Coral heal wounds and ulcers. Coral powder dissolved in water is an effective pain-killer.

Coral also is believed to attract love, prosperity, creativity, optimism, inner peace, strength and understanding of life's purpose.

Hawaii's coral reefs stretch out for more than 1200 miles in the Pacific Ocean, covering about 85% of all coral reefs in the US. The reef is of great importance to the ocean environment and its inhabitants as well as to humans. It supports marine and terrestrial life.
They look just like rocks, but reefs are alive. Corals give them their structure, offering habitat and food to the many fish, lobsters, octopus and crabs. The 500 different species of algae growing on the Hawaiian coral reef provide food and life-sustaining oxygen for all marine life. Algae provide more oxygen than all land plants worldwide combined.
Many of the plants, fish, and invertebrates found in the Hawaiian coral reef are endemic to Hawaii. In old Hawaii reef fish provided the people with  protein and are still considered a delicacy today.

Reefs protect shorelines from erosion and storm damage by limiting the impact of strong waves.

The beautiful beaches of Hawaii were created by the coral reef. Beach sand evolves from dead fragments of coral, shells and calcified algae. 

The great surfing waves of Hawaii are shaped by the reefs.
Snorkeling and diving in the enchanting coral reef makes the Pacific Ocean and underwater paradise, which allows us to connect with the wonders of nature.
Hawaiian reefs are endangered. Showing respect and appreciation by helping to clean the beaches, catching only the fish that are really needed, refraining from throwing waste into the water will help to sustain our precious coral reefs.

Malama Ka'aina!- Care for the land!

The magnificent Hawaiian Coral inspired the creation of Menehune Boy Puna (Coral).

Puna (Coral), the Healer 

Birthdate: Kepakemapa 1, 2016 (09-01-16)

Allow Puna to be your healing guide! 
His coral Mana restores Pono (harmony) in mind, body and soul.

Puna's gift to you is his precious red bamboo coral staff. Red coral is the stone of passion and healing. Puna reflects the coral's great magical and medicinal Mana (spiritual energy).
Puna is a Ho'ola (healer). Walking along the shores of the magnificent Punalu’u Black Sands Beach, he searches for the gorgeous corals, he is named after. When the signs are right and the spirits permit, he gathers the corals. Chanting a Pule (prayer) to give thanks for the gift, Puna cleans the corals in the ocean water and merges with their Mana.
As soon as he enters his Ohana’s (family’s) village, all the Menehunes gather around him. “Aloha e Puna!” they greet him respectfully. Puna is the Menehune’s Ho'ola. Being around Puna’s corals and healing Mana leaves the Menehunes with a feeling of deep inner peace and happiness.

Puna's Tutu (grandmother) sewed his blue lava lava (wraparound). She hand drew a red coral and limu (sea grass) design on the front of the lava lava to enhance Puna's magical coral Mana. All these things were Tutu's sacred gifts of Aloha (Love) to her beloved Mo’opuna Kane (grandson).

Puna 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. Puna has tiny little hands and feet, ears, buttocks, and a belly button. All accessories were individually handcrafted.

Puna is a one of a kind collectible display dolls handcrafted by Hawaiian Dolls. He comes with his story and a certificate of authenticity.

Puna brings you the healing Mana of the Hawaiian Coral.

Magical Fairy Tales

                              Pu, the Menehune Mo'olelo (Story Teller)

Fairy tales have a wonderful secretive power. They draw magic into our lives and inspire us with a sense of wonder. Enchantment, magical spells, dwarfs, giants, witches and always the triumph of good over evil have fascinated humanity for centuries.
As a little girl in Germany my childhood was filled with fairy tales and magic. Every night my grandmother or my mother would read a fairy tale to me. I loved to hear them over and over again.
My grandmother’s Brother Grimm's fairy tale book is still one of my most cherished possessions. Opening the precious book with the wonderful pictures is like stepping into a world of magic. 
Fairy tales shaped my life, teaching me to dream, believe and love.

At an early age I learned that all things magical require faith.

Fairy tales have been passed down from mother to daughter, father to son, for hundreds of years. Our ancestors talk to us through fairy tales, reawakening memories that go beyond childhood into past lifes reminding us of the trans-formative power of stories.

My love of fairy tales inspired the creation of Pu and Honu.

Pu and Honu
Conch Shell and Turtle

Birth Date: Kepakemapa 4, 2016 (09/04/16)

Pu, the Mo’olelo (story teller) uses the power of words to weave wishes into reality.

Standing up on a hill in the Kaiholena Mountains, Pu blows his conch shell in the 4 sacred directions, announcing to his Menehune Ohana (family) that he is ready to tell another one of his exciting stories to them. As the powerful sound of Pu’s conch shell echoes across the 'Aina (land), the Menehunes come running to the story place in the ferns to hear Pu’s new tale.

Pu tells stories about the Menehune Ohana, the Hawaiian animals, the forest, the ocean, and the stars in the Universe. The Menehunes listen to Pu’s story in wonder, sometimes laughing, sometimes crying, and always full of excitement. Pu’s stories are wonderful!

Pu uses his words to weave the story into being. He knows that words and thoughts have tremendous power to shape reality, changing the past, present, and future.
Pu knows how to tell your story too!
He will use his words to weave your wishes into reality.

Honu is listening too. She is Pu’s Aumakua (guardian spirit) and has become his faithful companion. Pu is deeply connected with the ancient wisdom of Honu. In Hawaii the Honu represents long life, safety, peace, and good luck.
The conch shell was Kuku’s (grandfather’s) gift of Aloha (love) to his Mo’opuna Kane (grandson). Pu always carries his conch shell, even when he goes to sleep. It attracts good luck and the courage to manifest dreams.
Pu’s Tutu (grandmother) sewed his lava lava (wraparound) out of red cotton and crocheted a green hat, underwear and matching shoes. She hand painted 3 green honus on the lava lava and wrapped a Honu amulet around Pu's neck to invoke divine blessings. Last she put a white Plumeria Flower on little Honu who loves its beauty and sweet fragrance.

 Pu 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. Pu has little hands and feet, ears, buttocks, and a belly button. Honu is about 1" long. The body is made out of faux fur and wired for flexibility. All accessories were individually handcrafted.

Pu and Honu are one of a kind display dolls handcrafted by Hawaiian Dolls. They come with their story and a certificate of authenticity.

Pu and Honu convey the magical power of words.
