Kahiko (Hula)

Birth Date: Malaki 8, 2014 (03/08/14)

Ma’ema’e ke ‘ala e holo ala
E ala mai, E naue mai, E noke mai e

Clear the path to move on
Awake, Move, Persevere

The divine beat of the Ipu (gourd) echoes across the ‘Aina (land) as Kahiko gracefully performs the ancient Hula. With strength and agility he moves in harmony to Kumu Hula (teacher) Oli’s sacred chants.

In the Aloha (compassion) spirit, the Lōkahi (unity) spirit, and the Pono (righteousness) spirit, Kahiko honors the gods, tells stories about Aumakua
(ancestral guardians), the sacredness of life and respect for all things with his dance. The Menehune Ohana (family) loves to watch. Kahiko’s Hula and Kumu Hula Oli’s chants are wonderful!

Kahiko’s dance inspires us to awake, move forward and persevere, to live in faith with intention, determination and courage.

Kahiko’s Tutu (grandmother) wove her Mana (spiritual energy) and Aloha (love) into his Maile and Hulu (feather) leis. In Hawaii Maile is the lei of eternal love. It is worn in honor of the Hula Goddess Laka. The yellow Hulu (feather) leis around his hips and wrists are believed to link to the divine.
Tutu also wove Kahiko’s traditional grass skirt and crocheted his red pants.
The red, green and yellow colors Kahiko wears honor the Mana (spiritual energy) of the land.


Kahiko is about 3.5” tall, fitting in the palm of your hand. The body is made out of stretch cotton and wired for flexibility. The eyes and mouth are intricately embroidered onto the face. Kahiko has tiny little hands and feet, ears, buttocks, and a belly button. All accessories were individually handcrafted.


Kahiko moves in harmony to the sacred chants of his Kumu Hula (teacher) Oli. Humbly and respectfully, Oli and Kahiko Aloha Honua (honor the earth) together.

Kahiko is a one of a kind display doll handcrafted by Hawaiian Dolls. He comes with his story and a certificate of authenticity.
