    Maunakea Tank Top

    'O MAUNAKEA, KUAHIWI, KŪ HA'O I KA MĀLIE • Mauna Kea, Standing alone in the calm

    In Hawaiian creation, the Earth Mother, Papahānaumoku, and the Sky Father, Wākea, created the Islands, with Hawai‘i Island being the first. Mauna Kea as their first born child, was therefore held in highest esteem. In our traditions, Mauna Kea is known as “Ka Mauna a Wākea - The Mountain of Wākea”, god of the heavens and father of Hawai‘i. Because Maunakea was the first-born child of Papa and Wākea, it is also considered the piko, or center of Hawai‘i, and a connecting point to the heavens.

    Pai'ea Tank Top

    As an infant, Kamehameha the Great, son of high chief Keoua, was named Pai'ea, a type of hard-shelled crab. This crab lives and runs along the rocky shore with the ‘a‘ama, withstanding even the most dangerous of surf. The Pai'ea crab while not as active as the ‘a’ama relies on it's great strength and camouflage skills as well as it's extremely hard shell for protection. Pai'ea is also a term used for a fierce warrior or great athlete able to overcome great adversity.

    Mahiole Tank Top

    The Mahiole, woven of 'Ie'ie and covered with rare feathers were reserved exclusively for the use of the Ali‘i, symbolizing their chiefly divinity, rank and power. The construction of Mahiole required an incredible amount of labor and craftsmanship. Skilled trappers caught the birds by employing various techniques such as snaring their prey midair with nets, or using decoy birds to lure them onto branches coated with a sticky substance. They often harvested only a few feathers from each bird before releasing them back into the wild so they could produce more feathers. Skilled workers belonging to the aliʻi class crafted a framework of 'ie'ie and olonā as the foundation for the helmets & cloaks, onto which thousands of bundles of feathers were attached, creating powerful, bold designs.
