Re my last posting - this is the information that comes with the cards.

`Iwakeli`i is a male frigate bird which spends the summers chasing Malolo,
the flying fish, below the horizon. In winter, he protectively flies near
his family. You may know `Iwakeli`i as Casseopeia. His mate, `Iwahine, flies
round and round her nest, Punana, the North Star. You may know `Iwahine as
the Little Dipper, an asterism of Ursa Minor.

There are also prints.

Leilehua Yuen who makes these is an indigenous Hawaiian artist, and an
authority on Hawaiian culture and ancient hula.
