The Maile sisters are famous in many of the myths of Hawai'i. They are known as hula deities. The sisters are Maile-pakaha, Maile-ha'i-wale, Maile-kaluhea, and Maile-lauli'i. The maile of Kipuka Ki on the slopes of Mauna Loa is of the lauli'i variety. The three-leafed vines are commonly seen climbing amongst the koa and 'ohi'a trees. The translation of the print's name, E Ola Moekahilauli'i, is "Live, oh young small leafed maile before branches form!" Moekahi is the term used to describe the early stages of maile's growth, before it begins to branch out.
Waihonu Pond is located in the Queen Liliuokalani Gardens in Hilo. A favorite Hilo site for eyeing the full moon setting behind Mauna Kea or to watch the colors of the sunset, we often take this cruise to look-see who is out and about. It is one of Hilo’s treasured afternoon drives!
