Makani (Winds)

Malanai

Ka Malanai is the gentle (northeast, according to some) breeze associated with Kailua. This wind is said to induce lovemaking.

“Holopali is of Kaʻaʻawa and Kualoa,
Kiliua is of Waikāne,
Mololani is of Kuaaohe,
Ulumano is of Kāneʻohe,
The wind is for Kaholoakeāhole,
Puahiohio is the upland wind of Nuʻuanu,
Malanai is of Kailua,
Limu-li-puʻupuʻu comes ashore at Waimānalo,
ʻAlopali is of Pāhonu,
At Makapuʻu the wind turns…”

(Nakuina, 1990, 55)

“Malanai: a gentle breeze (Kailua, Oʻahu; Kōloa, Kauaʻi)”

(Nakuina, 1990, 134)

Kaiāulu

Also a gentle breeze, referenced in newspaper article by B. V. Kalanikuihonoinamoku.

See Kalanikuihonoinamoku, B. V. Ke Au Okoa. No Na wahi a na’Lii e makemake ai e noho ma ka wa kahiko ma ka Mokupuni o Oahu nei. 31 Iul 1865.

Ka Makani Huʻe Kapa

Ka Makani Huʻe Kapa is the wind of Ka Nuku o Nuʻuanu (hairpin lookout turn). This is a strong gusty wind that “huʻe” our “kapa.” It is said to lift up our clothes because it is so gusty. This is a familiar wind to those who would frequently travel (walk) ka Nuku o Nuʻuanu on their way to and from Kona (town)
