Inspired by the legends of Ku, one of the original ancestors from the beginning.
Ku is recognized in many forms. He is one of the four primary profound ancestors and is associated with as "the Creation" and is seen in many forms of nature. Many people know of Ku as a war god although he is also a great healer. In this image we have depicted the spirit of Ku embodied in the Hawaiian Warrior (Koa). In our attempt to illustrate the spirit of the warrior, Ku is called on by the warriors to give them power and victory in battle. Ku's power is recognized in the warrior (center) performing a Ha'a to exhibit his strength and cause fear in the opposition.
