about Z


(Legendary Hawaiian Goddess)

Haumea is the great Earth-Mother. According to Hawaiian legend, she embodies the mystical Makalei tree, abundant source of the Hawaiian food supply.   The branches bear various staples such as taro, bamboo, coconut, sugarcane, and breadfruit--all pouring forth infinitely.   Haumea gives birth from different parts of her body--Pele the volcano-goddess as a flame from  her mouth;  Hi'iaka the healer as an egg from the extension of her right palm,  shown as the supporting tree-root.   She holds the Makalei branch--shown flowering shells--which, when dipped into the ocean,  attracts fish.   As Nu’akea,  from her breasts milk flows as rivers--through the roots,  the sacred Earth, and all of creation--with life-giving waters in a complete cycle of eternal  sustenance.
Zariah wrote a child's version of this story as well, published in
November 2007 issue as

"Haumea the Hawaiian Earth Mother." 
It is a fun read and even includes a hidden pictures puzzle!
