In ancient Hawaiian Mythology, Hawaiians filled their amazing land and history with tiki gods. Ancient oracles of Hawaiian kahunas perched carved wooden tikis on volcanic cliffs, peering through the rainforest, mystic caves, and placed along the coastlines.

Ku – Ancient Tiki God of War

In Hawaiian mythology Ku is one of the four great gods along with the ancient tiki gods, Kanaloa, Kane, and Lono. He was the husband of the goddess Hina (Beckwith 1970:12), suggesting a complementary dualism as the word ku in the Hawaiian language means "standing up" while one meaning of 'hina' is 'fallen down.'

Ku is worshipped under many names, including Ku-ka-ili-moku, the "Seizer of Land" (a feather-god, the guardian of Kamehameha). Rituals included human sacrifice, which was not part of the worship of the other gods. Ku, Kane, and Lono caused light to shine in upon the world. They are uncreated gods who have existed from eternity.
