the moon. According to Hawaiian legend, she was longing for relief from
tapa beating and endless chores, so she climbed a rainbow from the
to the moon. To this day you
can see her image in the full moon,
the tapa. As Divine Mother, her silvery- blue form cradles the
calabash", containing the "seeds of the heavens", as moon, stars,
and everflowing creativity
stream forth. Here they are seen
feeding into significant petroglyphs that envelop the mystical
night. She is called Hina'opuhalako'a, "Hina from whose womb came
various forms", in the Hawaiian creation chant KUMULIPO. Goddess
of conception, menstruation, and nurturing, Hawaiians chant to Hina
while planting. Goddess of coral and sea creatures, Hawaiians
fishing relate her with timing to the rising and setting of the stars.
