Lehua woodcut

n the Hawaiian legend, Laka is the daughter of Wahieloa and Hina-hawa'e. She plans to sail to Hawaii to avenge the murder of her father, but her canoe-building is thwarted by the little gods of the forest. Because of her offerings to the great gods, however, they give her two outriggers that binds her together for her long voyage. She and her companions successfully steal the bones of her father from the cave of Kai-kapu.
