Ke Ala O Ka Mahina
This circular moon calendar….
….presents a Hawaiian perspective of time. Furthermore the design reflects the relationships within the spiritual, natural, and human realms. In Hawaiian culture, the mahina (moon) is a home of the goddess Hina. Our Kūpuna (ancestors) used the phases of the mahina as a guide to sustain life and maintain balance in the environment.
And today, many people continue to rely on traditional Hawaiian knowledge as a guide for daily activities, including fishing and farming.
