Fish and Their Gifts | Nā Pōmaikaʻi o nā Iʻa, The
Joshua Kaiponohea Stender
When a boy named Kekoa is swept out to sea by a large wave, he prays for help to the Hawaiian god Kanaloa and several types of fish come to Kekoa’s rescue. Kanaloa then rewards each fish with special abilities to allow them to protect themselves from predators. More than just a charming story, this tale reminds us of the value of helping others.
