Aloha Mai I come with love. Laka connects our hearts and actions with Aloha. Focus on your higher purpose, choose wisely and you will grow, flourish and blossom in unlimited possibilities!

The sacred drumming of the Ipu Heke (gourd drum) echoes across the 'Aina (land) as Laka dances and chants with the Akuas (spirits) of the Ohia Forest.The graceful movements of her hands and body tell stories about the wonders of nature, the creation of the world and the traditions of the Hawaiian people.The Menehune Ohana (family) watches in awe as the harmony of Hula and chant attunes them to spirit and gladdens their heart.Laka's name means compassion. She is named after Hawaii's Hula Goddess.

Laka's Mana (spiritual energy) attunes us to the spirit of Aloha.

Laka's Tutu (grandmother) is her Kumu Hula (Hula Teacher). She taught her the powerful chants and movements of the Hula. Tutu handcrafted the traditional green hula skirt and coconut shell top for Laka. Tutu wove a green and yellow feather Haku (head lei), ankle and wrist leis for her granddaughter and wrapped a long white conch shell necklace around her neck. The Hulu (feather) represents spiritual strength, unity and love. It is believed to link to the divine. All these precious things were Tutu’s gifts of Aloha (Love) to her Mo’opuna Wahine (granddaughter). Laka is a 10” tall cloth doll who was individually handcrafted on the Big Island of Hawaii with the greatest love and respect for all that is Hawaii. Her body is made out of doll skin and stuffed with high quality poly fill. The body is wired for flexibility. The legs are jointed. The eyes and mouth are intricately embroidered onto the face. All accessories are individually hand crafted. Each doll is an original design and comes with a booklet and a certificate of authenticity. Laka is a one of a kind Hawaiian Art Doll. Every bit of her has been lovingly handcrafted, to create a new friend who will last a lifetime.
