Mahina calculates the current moon phase and can present all the lunar phase's Hawaiian names & a brief description of what that moon meant to the Hawaiians.

The Hawaiians were spectacular navigators, perhaps among the best in the world. Not only did they have a deep understanding of the ocean and current, but also of the stars and the movement of the moon. That being the case, it should come as no surprise that the moon plays a very important role in the lives of the Hawaiians. Each lunar phase had a specific name in Hawaiian, and were associated with kapus as well as times for planting, fishing and gathering.

Mahina gives you daily updates on the current moon phase and what planting and fishing advice is most advisable by Hawaiian traditions.

App needs to be updated

This app was awesome until I realized its off a day. I had to cross-reference several reputable Hawaiian moon calendars (i.e. Ke Ala o ka Mahina by KS Publishing) and was small kine embarrassed to think I was a day behind everyone else... Other than that mahalo nui for creating this app, as I know I wasn’t easy.

This app has been great to use. During this pandemic we’ve been spending more time in our garden and out fishing. It’s wonderful to have this Hawaiian knowledge readily available.
