Whales have great cultural significance for the Native Hawaiians. Whales play a large role in Hawaiian legend including one creation story and appear in ancient petroglyphs on several islands. The return of the 'kohola' (or the humpback whale) as seen every winter season along the Kohola Coast is considered a special homecoming.
Humpback whales are born in the surrounding ocean waters of the Hawaiian archipelago, making them kamaaina (native-born). Some of the Native Hawaiian population believe the humpback whales are 'aumakua' (family guardians) and are treated with great respect.
