Hawaiian mythology Of the great gods worshiped throughout Polynesia, Ku, Kane, Lono and Kanaloa were named to the early missionaries. They are invoked together in chant, as in the lines: A distant place lying in quietness According to Kupihea the great gods came at different times to Hawaii. Ku and Hina, male and female, were the earliest gods of his people. Kane and Kanaloa came to Hawaii about the time of Maui.
Tiki Gods Ku and Hina: male or husband (kane) and female or wife (wahine), are invoked as great ancestral gods of heaven and earth who have general control over the fruitfulness of earth and the generations of mankind. Ku means "rising upright", Hina means "leaning down". The sun at its rising is referred to Ku, the afternoon to Hina. Prayer is addressed to Ku toward the east, to Hina towards the west. Togetherthe two includes the whole earth and the heavens from east to west; in a symbol aslo they include the generations of mankind, both those are to come and those already born. Ku is the expression of the male generating power of the first parent by means of which the race is made fertile and reproduces from a single stock. Hina is the expression of female fecundity and the power of growth and production. The universal character of Ku as a god worship to produce good crops, good fishing, long life, and family and national prosperity for a whole people is illustrated in a prayer.

Tiki Lono in Hawaii is associated with cloud signs and the phenomena of storms. Lono as god of fertility was celebrated in the Makahiki festival held during the rainy season of the year. In prayers to Lono the signs of the god are named as thunder, lightning, earthquake, the dark cloud, the rainbow, rain and wind, whirlwinds that sweep the earth, rocks washed down the ravines by "the red mountain streams rushing to the sea", waterspouts, the clustering clouds of heaven, gushing springs on the mountains. Tiki Kane: was the leading god among the great gods named by the Hawaiians at the time of the arrival of the missionaries in the islands. He represented the god of procreation and was worshiped as ancestor of chiefs and commoners. Tiki Kanaloa is invokedby canoe men, Kane for the canoe building and Kanaloa for its sailing.
