    HE KUMU LEHUA MUIMUI I KA MANU.

    A lehua tree covered with birds.

    This image created by artist Nelson Makua for the 2018 Merrie Monarch Festival celebrates the ‘ōhi‘a lehua. It was inspired by the ‘ōlelo noe‘au - He kumu lehua muimui i ka manu, which translates to, “A lehua tree covered with birds.” This is a poetic reference to someone so attractive as to have many suitors, and it also speaks of the importance of the ‘ōhi‘a lehua in the forest. Depicted here is the beautiful Lehua surrounded by the ‘I‘iwi birds symbolizing the intertwining relationship between the ‘ōhi‘a lehua and the ‘I‘iwi.

    ‘Öhi‘a trees make up the largest portion of the canopy in native forests. They provide shelter and food for numerous native birds, including endemic Hawaiian honeycreepers such as the ‘apapane and ‘i‘iwi.

    KĀHULI KE AKUA 'O KAMA.

    Numerous are the forms of Kamapua'a.

    Kamapua'a, the Hawaiian pig god, had the ability to change his appearance at will. He was a shape-shifter with numerous forms. At times he appeared as a tall handsome man, attracting women with his virile stature and the next, he would be a pig rooting in the deep black mud of the forest.

    Defiant of all authority, bold and untamed, he is the "pig" within us, pursuing the good things in life, adventure, love and sensual pleasure. Treacherous and tender, he is the embodiment of the best and worst in all of us.
