Akua Kii found at Kawaihae, 1906.


Last week, there was digging, and found a was Hawaiian god image at Kawaihae, and it is believed that it is a kii of Kane. A Hawaiian was digging at the beach of Kawaihae for some rocks to build his house with, and while he was digging he found this kii, and it was as if there was a heiau there before. It is a black stone image that is four feet tall, and its head, eyes, and nose are clearly recognizable, and it looks terrifying.

The kii was photographed by Eben Low and Deputy Attorney General [Hope Loio Aupuni] Prosser. This image is now in the yard of this Hawaiian man, in the section behind his house.
