No Ke Kumu Ulu (Bilingual)

 Author: Kawehi Awelino

Kū, one of the four main akua Hawaiʻi, came from Kahiki and settled in Hawaiʻi. He decided to live as a kānaka and started a family. He worked hard and farmed to feed his ʻohana. One day he realized that there was a famine. He knew what he must do to help his people survive. To save them, he descended into the ground and re-emerged as a breadfruit tree, whose fruits could be cooked and eaten.
