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