Synopsis: In the mid-1900's, the author Leinani Melville was a merchant sailor who was taught traditional Hawaiian religion, mythology, and sacred symbols by Native Hawaiians, which included an elderly Hawaiian woman in Waikiki. Just before this elderly Hawaiian woman died, she told Melville to write a book. This book took over 2 decades to write and it is about the Hawaiian Gods, select mythology (including the Kumulipo or creation chant), and many illustrated sacred symbols with explanations. In addition, it does have a few astrological references in the context of the presented mythology or history. Children Of the Rainbow is a unique, priceless, and readable authentic Native Hawaiian resource.
