Pamakani (Hibiscus), the Hula Dancer

Birth Date: Pepeluali 8, 2017 (02/08/17)

Aloha Mai
I come with love.

Pamakani's Hula honors the miracle of life.
Join her in a celebration of life’s joys and abundance!

Celebrating the glorious magnificence of life, Pamakani dances the ancient Hawaiian Kahiko Hula in harmony to the rhythm of her Ipu (gourd).
In the Aloha (compassion) spirit, the Lōkahi (unity) spirit, and the Pono (righteousness) spirit, Pamakani's dance honors the gods, tells stories about Aumakuas (ancestral guardians), the sacredness of life and respect for all of nature.
The sounds of Pamakani's Ipu enhance the rhythm and add excitement to her dance.

Watch her closely! Pamakani invites you to enter her sacred space so that your beauty can unfold like the precious Hibiscus blossoms she is named after.

Pamakani's Tutu (grandmother) is her Kumu Hula (Hula Teacher). She taught her the powerful movements of the Kahiko Hula.
Ipus grow on a vine. Tutu picked the most beautiful one for her beloved Mo'opuna (Granddaughter). She cleaned, polished and decorated it with a crystal.
Then Tutu blessed the Ipu with Hawaiian salt and special prayers. The Ipu is sacred now. It was created for Pamakani and only she is allowed to touch it. This was Tutu's sacred gift of Aloha (Love) and it became Pamakani's most treasured possession.

Tutu wove her Mana (spiritual energy) and Aloha into Pamakani's wrist, ankle and head feather leis. The Hulu (feather) represents spiritual strength, unity and love. It is believed to link to the divine.
Tutu sewed a green and purple top and matching pants and wove a green grass skirt for Pamakani. Last Tutu adorned Pamakani's hair with a beautiful purple Hibiscus flower.

 Pamakani 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. Pamakani has tiny little hands and feet, ears, buttocks, and a belly button. All accessories were individually handcrafted.
Pamakani is a one of a kind collectible display dolls handcrafted by Hawaiian Dolls.
She comes with her story and a certificate of authenticity.

Pamakani’s Mana attunes us to the spirit of Hawaii.
