Summary: "Ku and Hina-man and woman-were the great ancestral gods of heaven and earth for the ancient Hawaiians. They were life's fruitfulness and all the generations of mankind, both those who are to come and those already born."

"Ku & Hina (man & woman) were the great ancestral gods of heaven & earth for ancient Hawaiians. Hawaiian gods were like great chiefs from far lands who visited among the people, entering their daily lives in human or animal form, in a stone or wooden idol. Ancient Hawaiians lived by the aimistic philosophy that assigned living souls to animals, trees, stones, stars & clouds, as well as to humans."
