About this title


It is a tale of old written by one of HawaiÔiÕs kupuna who grew up on a small plantation camp in Mokul‘Ôia. Inspired by his grandson during bedtime storytelling, Toki first drew the illustrations using quick strokes before the visions in his head disappeared. Then he put the story down on paper. Part of his youthÑexploring Waialua, playing in streams, fishing, picking wild fruitÑis relived as he tells this story of a boy named HŠna and his friend the honu.

Moku is a fisherman who lives by beautiful Waimea Bay. During one stormy winter, Moku and his wife struggle for food. Just when they fear they will starve, Moku makes one last attempt to fish and fights through the crashing waves of Waimea Bay. At last, he comes across a giant heÔe (octopus) who selflessly offers himself to Moku and his Ôohana. In return, Moku and the heÔe become friends. Moku and the HeÔe of Waimea is a timeless tale that explores the relationship all living creatures have with each other.
