Based on the Hawaiian Moon Calendar, Kulu is the moon of the 17th night. Kulu also means to flow like tears. This moon and her meaning inspired this koa beauty. Traditionally, Hawaiians divide the lunar cycle of approximately 30 pō (24-hour periods) into three anahulu (three 10-day- long weeks) Each Anahulu is based on the waxing or waning of the moon. The anahulu are named: Ho‘onui (i.e., to grow bigger), Poepoe (i.e., rounding), and Emi (i.e., to fade away or decrease in size). The Anahulu of Ho‘onui includes Hilo, Hoaka, Kūkahi, Kūlua, Kūkolu, Kūpau, ʻOle Kūkahi, ʻOle Kūlua, ‘Ole Kūkolu, and ‘Ole Pau.
