From inside the depth of Kane'ana, symbolic of the Earth Goddess's womb, mankind emerged and his existence spread throughout the Waianae Coast. The souls of those who passed on go to Kalae o Kala'au (Ka'ena Point). From here souls ascend to po, the realm of ancestral spirits, completing the cycle of life. In ancient times, entry into Kane'ana was kapu (forbidden), for this was the home of Nanaue, the Shark Man of Kane'ana."
