Hina, Moon Goddess of Hawaii


Mahina o hoku
Hoʻike aʻe ʻoe
A i kou nani

Full moon of the night
Reveal your
Beauty

Hina, Goddess of the moon and of healing, was said to have climbed a rainbow from the ocean depths to the moon.
Hina wanted to be free from the demands of others and escape her endless everyday chores, in order to find her sacred place and express her creativity.

In the Hawaiian creation chant ,Kumulipo, she is called Hina'opuhalako'a, "Hina from whose womb came various forms". She is the Goddess of conception, menstruation, and nurturing.
While planting, Hawaiians chant to Hina to invoke her blessings.
Goddess of coral and sea creatures, Hawaiian fishermen relate to Hina by watching the rising and setting of the stars for the right timing of fishing.

Hina's creativity is illuminated through her connection with the cycles of life. She cradles a cosmic Ipu (gourd) containing the seeds of the heavens, from which the moon, stars, and creativity are sown.

If you look closely you can still see Hina's image in the full moon, beating the tapa.


Honoring Hina channels new growth.
Let go of the demands of everyday life and take a retreat of stillness. 
Connect with the earth and the moon, express intuition and creativity.
Join Hina in planting the seeds of heaven to grow dreams 
and communicate visions to the Mana of the Universe.
Reap what you sow and celebrate your crop!
 Hina inspires us to feel, play, dance, be.

Little Menehune girl, Hina, was created in honor of Hawaii's Moon Goddess.

Birthdate: Lune 27, 2017 (06/27/17)


 Hina bestows blessings of new growth, intuition and creativity.

The sacred drumming of the Ipu (gourd) echoes across the 'Aina (land) as Hina chants to the Akuas (spirits) of the moon:

Mahina o hoku
Hoʻike aʻe ʻoe
A i kou nani

Full moon of the night
Reveal your
Beauty

 Because of her devotion to the moon Mana (spiritual energy), Hina was named after the Hawaiian Goddess of the Moon.
Standing in her moon chair, Hina blesses her Menehune Ohana (family) with new growth, intuition and creativity by generously sprinkling the seeds of heaven from her cosmic Ipu upon them.
The Menehunes watch in awe as the heavenly seeds attune them to spirit and gladden their heart.

Hina's Tutu (grandmother) wove her Mana (spiritual energy) and Aloha (love) into the Maile Haku (head lei). Maile is the lei of eternal love. It is believed to link to the divine.
Tutu also sewed Hina’s blue moon dress. She crocheted white panties and matching shoes. She adorned the shoes and top of the dress with star crystals and crafted 2 crystal bracelets. The crystals symbolize magic.
Hawaiian gourds grow on a vine. Tutu picked the most beautiful of the Ipus for Hina. She cleaned, polished and decorated it with a star crystal. It became Hina’s most treasured possession.
All these precious things were Tutu's gifts of Aloha (Love) for her beloved Mo’opuna Wahine (granddaughter).
Hina 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. She has tiny little hands and feet, ears, buttocks, and a belly button.
The coconut for Hina’s chair was selected from palm trees at Punalu’u Black Sands Beach. It is hand carved, sanded, polished, and fit to a custom coconut base.
All accessories were individually handcrafted.

At night, Hina dwells in her moon chair. Feeling like a sparkling diamond shining among the stars, Hina gets lost in the majestic beauty of the moon.

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

Hina inspires us to feel, play, dance, be.



 Hina, the Moon Goddess and Pele, the Volcano Goddess are available on special order.
