Aloha Kimara,

I'm absolutely certain you're right!

'Io (or Kiho or Yhihvogh) was the sacred name of the "creator of all things" ... aka TGAOTU.

One noted Polynesian historian counted 27 different names for 'Io, including

  • 'Io-ke-wanala or Kiho-te-wanaga ... "the source of all knowledge."
  • 'Io-maka-wai or Kiho-mata-wai ... "'Io, the God of Love"

Another symbol of 'Io was the Hawk.

If you look through the message archives, you'll notice how often a hawk appears to people when they're getting specialized remote healing ...

... a hawk also "appeared" to almost everyone the night before the March training.

That's 'Io.

Here's a passage from one Ancient Initiation Ceremony (English Translation):

    "See how the hawk flies so high in the sky.
    From his perch in the sky, he can see
    the clouds that brush against the mountain peaks and fall as rain.
    He can see as the rain forms rivers, rough rapids, and cascading waterfalls,
    and finally large rivers which flow into the great ocean.
    So ... 'Io can see the stream of your life from beginning to end."

And, as you already know ...

... there's plenty more where that came from.

Nana I Ke Kumu!
