HINA-PUKU'AI is the Hawaiian Goddess of food plants. She is one of the many forms of the Great Goddess Hina, and her name means "Hina gathering vegetable food." Hina-puku'ai had a special gourd in which she kept food. One day, she was lured away from her home by a local chief, and she spilled all the food out of her gourd. The food flew up to the sky and became the moon and the stars. Hawaiians believe that the 'elepaio bird is one of the forms of Hina-puku'ai. This bird is very important in canoe building--it only lands on trees that are filled with insects and would therefore not make good canoes.
