Kuula image found near Kaneohe, 1900.


The other day, purchased by Rev. W. D. Westervelt of the Kawaiahao Church, from a fisherman, was a stone image believed to be a body form of Kuula, a fish god that the fishermen worshiped in the time when Hawaiians were living in darkness.

This stone figure was made like the body of a fish from basalt. It is eight inches long, and it was found in a place a number of miles away from Kaneohe.

It is said that Rev. W. D. Westervelt is writing a story pertaining to this kii pohaku.
