ANUENUE, THE HAWAIIAN RAINBOW GODDESS: Anuenue, the Hawaiian Rainbow Goddess, is a messenger of the Gods. Also called, the Beauty of Manoa, she was born of the divine wind and rain of Manoa Valley on Oahu. Since ancient times the valley has been regarded as “the royal palace of rainbows,” where Anuenue, the beautiful Rainbow Maiden, can be seen playing wherever the light of sun touches the misty rain. Anuenue is so beautiful that a rainbow follows her wherever she goes.

Anuenue was raised by her grandmother Waka in a secret forest clearing in Manoa Valley. Waka surrounded her Mo'opuna Wahine (granddaughter) in a fine mist to guard her maidenhood until she would be ready to marry a man of highest royalty. There Anuenue lives up to this day. Her 'I’iwi bird guardians bring her gifts of Ohia Lehua blossom as Anuenue watches over the Aina (sacred land).

Rainbows are seen so frequently in Hawaii, that the Islands are often called 'the Rainbow State'. To the ancient Hawaiians, rainbows were a symbol of good luck and prosperity. Babies destined to become great chieftains were born with rainbows over their homes and accompanied by rainbows throughout their lives.

Rainbow Warrior:
Rainbows were such an important part of Hawaiians culture that they were often portrayed in petroglyphs. A woman with an arch or rainbow signifies she is wise, honored and respected. A man and a rainbow in a petroglyph is interpreted as the keeper of the land and its people. Such petroglyphs are found in the Big Island’s lava fields and in the sacred Iao Valley of Maui.

Some natives have said that each color of the rainbow represents a Goddess and thinking of that color will bring about the element associated with it:
-WHITE represents the element of water and the Goddess Hina who bestows knowledge and awareness.
-Earth Goddess Haumea promises freedom and release. She bears the color RED. A stone is used as her element.
-ORANGE is for the Volcano Goddess Pele who infuses energy and focus. She commands the fire element.
-YELLOW is for the Goddess Hi’iaka who gives presence and purpose. Her element is the wind.
-PURPLE is for Goddess Uli, who endows success and effectiveness. People are her element.
-GREEN is for the element of plants and Goddess Laka, who showers love and compassion.
-BLUE is for the Goddess Kapo, the giver of power and ability. An animal is her element.

The Rainbow represents the bridge that connects us to the source.

LOCAL STYLE - A STORY FROM A LOCAL BRADDAH: I come from one small island in the BIG PACIFIC OCEAN called MAUI , HAWAII part of the HAWAIIAN ISLANDS.
If you've ever lived or was raised hea you say, WAT EVAS, DAKINE, WAT DAT, WASSUP, BRAH, HOWZIT, K DEN, LOLO, PAU and SHOOTS to name a few. When you go to other people's houses, there's always some kind of ONO grinds (food) to eat. If you need anything at all, someone's got your back!!!

Ohana (family) is everything and we care for our elders until the day they go onto paradise! Everybody knew everybody hea. We learned how to HUNT, FISH and drive 4wd. We eat POI, RAW FISH and SEAFOOD (with the heads still on) and drink HAWAIIAN SUN, ALOHA MAID or DIAMOND HEAD drinks everyday. From the day we were born, HO'OLAULE'A, MERRIE MONARCH, KUHIO, and KAMEHAMEHA days are holidays we thought were celebrated everywhere until we talk to people from the mainland (LOL). And yes, Aloe does cure everything!!

Musicians🎤🎷🎸🎹🎺📯💽 (not athletes) are the most popular kids in school. Shopping carts are (WAGONS) Refrigerators are called ICE BOX. Living room is DA PALA. We say 👈TRY MOVE👉 instead of excuse me. For respect, we call others AUNTY👩,UNCLE👨, SISTAH👧, BRADDAH👦, GRAMMA👵, GRANDPA👴 related to you or not. Oh and if you DISRESPECT your elders, pray no one calls your mom and dad or bumbai (LATER) you going get LICKINS👊 or CRACKS👊. HAWAII is a place where discipline is not child abuse. McDonald's food trays were used as hand boards to body surf and everyone used RUBBA SLIPPAS!

Post "Hawaii No Kai Oi" If you're proud to call a BIG small city home and will never forget where you came from!! Born On, raised or lived in Hawaii No Ka Oi !!!!!!!!!🌴🌴🌴🌴🌺🌺

Before we sign off for the night, we want to take a moment to MAHALO the Maui Fire Department and ALL of our first responders for their efforts in battling today’s massive brush fire (that includes our 911 dispatchers - what a day THEY had). We’d also like to thank the men and women of various companies from the private sector who brought in countless bulldozers, water trucks and other equipment to assist MFD. Included in that mix was our County Department of Public Works from Wailuku and Lahaina who brought in water trucks as well. Last but certainly not least, the pilots of Windward Aviation helping with those water drops. Air 1 and 2 - MAHALO!

This fire is far from extinguished but has settled down for the night and allowed our hard working men and women some time to catch their breath and get some rest. As far as we know, NO structures were taken by this fire although many were threatened, including the Ma’alaea power plant.

Speaking of the power plant, a big shout out to all the Ma'alaea power plant men and women working super long and hard hours to make sure the plant is protected and safe for the rest of us. Lots of them still out there suppressing the fire with the hoses in order to protect the power plant's perimeter. Awesome work you guys!

For those who were inconvenienced by being stuck in traffic for hours or evacuated for your homes, mahalo for your patience while our first responders made unpopular decisions to keep you safe.

Our crews on Maui are first class, folks. They proved it when they saved Lahaina last year and they did it again today. Give ‘em a MAHALO next time you see ‘em. Goodnight all! 🙏🏼❤️
