The traditional mele, “No Luna I Ka Hale Kai O Ka Maʻalewa” describes Hiʻiaka’s supernatural powers, particularly her ability to see and hear from great distances. From the heights on the northern shores of Kauaʻi, she sees the lehua forests of Puna and hears the rustling pebbles on the shores of Keaʻau, on Hawaiʻi Island. Although there are many variations of this mele, this hula performance traces back five generations to the late Kumu Hula Lokalia Montgomery.
