Onaona i Kahala me Ka Lehua
He Hale Lehua no ia na Ka noe
Aloha e, Aloha e

(Fragrant with the breath of Hala and Lehua
This is the sight I long to see
Greetings, Greetings)

The sacred drumming of the Ipu (gourd) echoes across the 'Aina (land) as Hi'iaka and Lohi'au dance and chant with the Akuas (spirits) of the Ohia Forest.
The Menehune Ohana (family) watches in awe as the harmony of Ipu, Hula and chant attunes them to spirit and gladdens their heart.

Hi'iaka and Lohi'au connect our hearts and actions with Aloha (love). Focus on your higher purpose, choose wisely and you will grow, flourish and blossom in unlimited possibilities.

Hi'iaka and Lohi'au are Menehune Mahoes (twins) and inseparable. Tutu (grandmother) is their Kumu Hula (Hula Teacher). She taught them the powerful chants and movements of the Hula.
Tutu sewed Hi'iaka's dress and Lohi'au's Malu (loincloth). She crocheted matching shoes and panties for her Mo’opunas (grandchildren). Tutu also wove Lohi'au's Ti Leaf and yellow feather lei and Hi'iaka's yellow feather Haku (head lei) and wrist leis. In Hawaii Ti Leafs are used for protection and purification. The Hulu (feather) represents spiritual strength, unity and love. It is believed to link to the divine. Last Tutu stuck a beautiful yellow Plumeria flower behing Hi'iaka's ear.
Hawaiian gourds grow on a vine. Tutu picked the most beautiful of the Ipus for Lohi'au. She cleaned, polished and decorated it with a feather lei. It became Lohi'au’s most treasured possession.

All these precious things were Tutu’s gifts of Aloha (Love) to her Mo’opunas.

Hi'iaka and Lohi'au are about 3.5” tall fitting in the palm of your hand. The bodies are made out of stretch cotton. The eyes and mouth are intricately embroidered onto the face. Hi'iaka and Lohi'au have tiny little hands and feet, ears, buttocks, and belly buttons.

All accessories were individually handcrafted.

Hi'iaka and Lohi'au spend their days in the sacred Ohia forest playing, dancing and chanting, honoring the Akuas. Often their big sister, Pele, comes down the mountain on the hardened lava flow to join her beloved brother and sister in their delightful games and dances.

Hi'iaka and Lohi'au are one of a kind display dolls handcrafted by Hawaiian Dolls. They come with their story and a certificate of authenticity.

Hi'iaka's and Lohi'au's Mana attunes us to the spirit of Aloha.
