In Hawaiian mythology Kū or Kū-ka-ili-moku is one of the four great gods along with Kanaloa, Kāne, and Lono. He is known as the god of war and the husband of the goddess Hina. Kū, Kāne, and Lono cause light to shine in upon the world. Each god can take many body forms, or kino lau. Thus, the sacred is inextricably linked to the natural world, for all parts of nature are manifestations of the divine.
