    Hiʻiaka is a well renowned goddess of Hawaiian mythology, the patron goddess of Hawaiʻi, hula (Hawaiian dance), oli (chants), sorcery and medicine. She is also the youngest sister of Pele, the powerful goddess of volcanoes and fire.

    Hiʻiaka is most famous for her epic journey across the Hawaiian islands to fetch Pele's lover, Lohiʻau. She traveled from Hawaiʻi island to Kauaʻi, solving a variety of challenges and bravely battling many powerful mythological creatures (kupua) along the way. Her persona and prowess make her a perfect embodiment of Mana Wahine (woman power) and a legendary hero.

    The silhouette on the back of the shirt illustrates the three supernatural gifts she was granted to complete her epic quest. 

    • The inner swirl represents ʻĀwihikalani (the heavenly leer) or the ability to foresee the future, communicate with spirits and wield supernatural knowledge.
    • The dotted swirls represent Ka Lima Ikaika o Kīlauea (the strong arm of Kīlauea) or super strength to help her defeat enemies.
    • The jagged swirls represent Pāʻū Uila (lightning skirt) or the magical skirt made of lightning to slay opponents or build a bridge between islands. 

    Wear this shirt if you are a fan of Hiʻiaka and her legendary Mana Wahine superpowers! Hiʻiaka is our hero.


    We've partnered with some stellar organizations who are taking garment printing into the 21st century with DTG (direct-to-garment) printing technology. This means, everything at Maoli is made to order and we don’t have a warehouse full of clothes lying around. This reduces the clothing waste in our business to nearly zero. 

    Our eco-friendly water-based inks provide unlimited color combinations and make detailed prints pop without reducing their vibrancy in the wash. Reducing toxicity in the environment is one of our top priorities. 

    Whenever possible, we also use organic, recycled, or sustainable fabrics to manufacture our apparel. We aim to make our products good for your body and for the ʻāina (land).

    We encourage our customers and our community to demand more from us when it comes to sustainability. Have an idea? Please don’t hesitate to reach out!
