The demigod Maui capturing the sun.

Hawaiian legend says Hana was the birthplace of the demigod Maui, who was born a mortal, then raised by the gods when his mother sent him into the sea during a time of famine.  he returned to Hana with powers granted to him by the god of the waters.  It is said Maui transformed his daughter’s lover into Kauiki Hill, and then turned his daughter into the gentle rain that falls upon the hill each day, so that they could be together forever.
