Rocky Ka'iouliokahikikolo'Ehu Jensen
February 28, 1999

Local Hawaii artist Rocky Ka'iouliokahikikolo'Ehu Jensen was first approached about creating a memorial to fallen ancient Hawaiian warriors in 1978, but the project did not actually begin until several years later, and it was finally completed in 1999.

The memorial is carved out of five eight-foot lehua logs with the face of Hawaiian war god Kunuiakea - aka Ku - carved on the face of each log. The name of the memorial is "Na Lehua Helelei" which means "scattered lehua blossoms" in Hawaiian (petals of the lehua flower represent drops of blood from fallen warriors).
