  • Kolohe and the Blessings of Color by Susan Culliney

    Early in time, when the newly hatched children of the Mother lived happily on the islands she had created, all these birds were without color.  Though they sang, ate grubs and fruits, and flew across barren lava plains and lush forests, their plumage was dull and insignificant.  One day, news spread across the islands:  the […]
