Ka-moho-aliʻi is a Hawaiian shark god, brother of Kāne Milohai, Pele, Kapo, Nāmaka and Hiʻiaka. He swam in the area around the islands of Maui and Kahoolawe. When a ship was lost at sea, Ka-moho-aliʻi shook his tail in front of the fleet and the kahuna would feed him "awa" (a name for kava, a narcotic drink), and Ka-moho-aliʻi would guide the men home.
