Description

In the Hawaiian Kumulipo, a cosmogonic and genealogical chant, some plants and animals of the land (mauka) have partner species in the sea (makai) or streams (wai).  These partner species were chosen by the ancients because of the similarity of their names, how they looked like each other & their uses together medicinally and culturally (some partners are not entirely clear).
