Kalai Ki'i= is the art of wood carving, in this art form the carver must know chants and theories of grounding an ancestral spirit into an image. The source is only one but Hawaiians believe their connection to that source comes through the lineage passed on by direct transmition of aquired Mana. Everything in the life of a traditional hawaiian had a personality and spirit under the Creator God. They were all prone to individual behaviors. Hawaiians would know how to interact and nurture this level of co-existance.
