Choosing the direct route through the forested territory of the moʻo, Panaʻewa, Hiʻiaka recognizes the dangers that lay ahead, but she remains keenly focused on the urgency of her errand. Fully aware of the exhausting battle that will ensue with Panaʻewa, Hiʻiaka foresees the grueling terrain that lies beyond at Hilo Palikū, and describes both situations appropriately. The dancers invoke the many forms of Hiʻiaka, while also entreating her abilities to heal and regenerate life.
