Lani Kūpuna
"A Sky of Ancestors"

Something @hungryhungryhawaiian posted a few months ago sparked this piece. Hawaiians believe that our ancestors are in all created things. Their breath is given back to creation at death and continue to live in the 'āina. Seems a fairly common belief among many cultures. Its commonality actually sheds light on the ancient Hawaiians and Polynesians relationship to the rest of the world in their time. The word kupuna is the singular version while the word kūpuna communicates the plural version. It's one of the few words in the Hawaiian language that has this distinction.
