Hawaiian Pueo Blesses Kaneiolouma Project

On this day a Hawaiian Pueo (owl) came by for a visit and caused quite a bit of wonderment. News of this blessing traveled fast across the island. Cultural transformation can have many faces, and events like this can strengthen purpose.

The Pueo (Asio flammeus sandwichensis) is a subspecies of Short-eared owl that is endemic to Hawaii. The pueo is one of the various nā ʻaumākua (ancestor spirits) in Hawaiian culture.

Pueo inhabit forests and grasslands throughout the islands of Hawaii, although their numbers are declining rapidly, particularly in the last two decades, and especially on the island of Oahu, upon which they were at one time very prevalent. Pueo are now listed as an endangered species. (Source: Wikipedia)
