NATIVE HAWAIIAN DESIGN
Genealogy or “Moʻokūʻauhau” is a highly valued concept in Hawaiian culture. In the times where the past was recorded via the spoken word, Hawaiians placed high importance on those who could become keepers of family ancestral history.
This design records a snippet of the genealogy of Hāloa the first kanaka maoli (Native Hawaiian) and his parents Wākea of the sky and Hoʻohōkūkalani of the stars. The genealogy is wrapped in a kalo plant to honor Hāloa’s eldest brother Hāloanakalaukapalili (long stalk of the fluttering leaves).
ʻO Wākea ke kāne (Wākea is the man)
ʻO Hoʻohōkūkalani ka wahine (Hoʻohōkūkalani is the woman)
Noho pū lāua (They settle together)
Hānau ʻia ʻo Hāloa. (Hāloa is born)
