Gallinule, Moorhen, 'Alae 'Ula

Gallinule/Moorhen/'Alae 'Ula's Wisdom Includes:
    ∞ Connection to water vegetation
    ∞ Ability to move above ones environment
    ∞ Diversity of color/race
    ∞ Use of voice
    According to legend, the Gallinule is one of the great benefactors of the early Hawaiian people. It was in the days before fire was known to the people, and the Gallinule took pity on them. Flying to the home of the gods (the volcanos), he stole a blazing brand and brought it back to earth. During his flight the Gallinule's formerly white forehead was scorched by the volcano’s fires -- thus its name "alae" signifying a burnt forehead. Today all gallinules bear a red frontal shield on their heads.
