Waipi'o, Valley of the Kings


Waipi'o Valley, the beautiful
Cliffs surround it
The sea on one side
The cliffs are hard to climb
Not to be climbed
Are the sea cliffs

Old Hawaiian Chant

Waipiʻo Valley, a place of indescribable beauty and great historical significance to the Hawaiian people, is the southernmost and largest of the seven windward valleys in the Kohala Mountains.
Waipi'o valley is deeply cut into the mountain, sheltered by cliffs up to 2000 feet.

Beautiful wild horses roam the Valley. Waterfalls and flowers cascading from the walls of the cliffs and a spectacular black sand beach perfect the sheer beauty of this Eden-like Valley.

Waipiʻo means curved water in Hawaiian. It was once home to early Hawaiian Ali'is (rulers). Many of their ancient burial caves can be found in the steep sides of the cliffs. According to legend, a section of the beach called Milu is the traditional doorway to the land of shadows.
Many myths, chants and songs originate from Waipiʻo.

Menehune Boy Waipi'o was created in honor of this divine Valley.

Birthdate: Lulai 4, 2017 (07/04/17)

Waipi'o’s music illuminates life with joy and happiness.

Named after the divine Valley of the Kings, Waipi'o sits happily in his driftwood chair at the beach playing his Ukulele. Nai'a (dolphin,) his Aumakua (guardian spirit), is curled around him perfecting the Mana (spiritual energy) of peace and happiness.
The delightful sound of Waipi'o's Ukulele echoes across the Aina (land) accompanying his songs about the Menehune Ohana (family), Hawaiian animals, the forest, the ocean, and the stars in the Universe.

Waipi'o reminds us that there is always more than enough time to fulfill all desires. 
His cheerful Mana brightens up the day with love and laughter.

Waipi'o’s Tutu (grandmother) sewed his blue ocean Malu (wraparound) and crocheted green underwear and matching shoes. Last she wrapped a white conch shell necklace around his neck and made sure he wears his Lauhala hat to protect him from the sun.
The Ukulele was Kuku’s (grandfather’s) gift of lasting love and Aloha to his beloved Mo’opuna Kane (grandson). It is Waipi'o's most cherished possession.

 
Waipi'o is about 4” tall, fitting in the palm of your hand. The eyes and mouth are intricately embroidered onto the face. Waipi'o has tiny little hands and feet, ears, buttocks, and a belly button. All accessories were individually handcrafted.
