The Wayfinderʻs Collection features 4 starlines that a navigator uses to organize the night sky. During the months of September - November, the starline that is most prominent is "Kalupeakawelo" or "The Kite of Kawelo" and therefore is our featured piece until the end of this quarter. If youʻre interested in reading more about these four starlines, visit our Hawaiian Starlines page on our ʻImiloa website. In the second photo attached you will see four charms that symbolize the four stars that frame the main body of this starline. Each represents the chiefs of our four major islands: Kakuhihewa (O'ahu), Keawe (Hawai'i), Pi'ilani (Maui), and Manokalanipō (Kaua'i).
