Hawaiian Tikis are spiritual figures who use their big, scary mouths and menacing expressions to frighten away evil. Their headdresses vary and have different meanings according to the shape. Each god assumed many different roles. For each role, they were perceived as particular and distinct gods, and had an epithet or specific name associated with each particular function. For example, the god Ku was Ku`ulakai or Ku of the sea's abundance
when he was the god of fishing. As the god of war, he was Kuka`ilimoku, of Ku the snatcher of land.
