Kuoomauna, the Guard of the Mountains
Posted: April 21, 2015 Filed under: Articles, Teasers
Kuoomauna, the guard of the mountains, sits on top of one of the highest peaks of Hawaii island. A royal Hawaiian head-dress crowns his head, as he observes the scenery below: scattered rocks, green forests, villages, plantations, and the surrounding tropical fauna.
With its human-like figure, Kuoomauna’s mountain watched as the ancient Hawaiians worshipped it. They approached the mountain only after performing mystic rites and ceremonies and bringing offerings of berries and Pele grass.
